POSITION: Outside Sales Representative
LOCATION: Salinas, CA (Central California -- will base from home)
Seeking a Rock Star Outside Sales Rep! For the dynamic salesperson with consultative sales expertise and an understanding of design, construction, and management of commercial projects into the public sector (Schools and City’s). Company designs, supplies and builds recreational play environments for schools, parks, childcare facilities, housing developments and more. If you love sales and want to be part of a growing organization doing work that enriches communities, then this Outside Sales Rep role may be the exceptional next career move you’ve been seeking.
As our Outside Sales Rep, you've progressed beyond needing a manager to track your every move. You are ready to leverage your knowledge of commercial-grade product sales with an industry-leading company that designs high quality, exciting play environments for the communities we serve. You will have the opportunity to work from your home office for a market leader with the chance to give back to your community. You will have the unique opportunity to offer local communities the best commercial-grade play equipment products as well as the construction services and support they need to build the projects they’ve imagined (with the aid of a project manager). We are a full turnkey operation that caters to a true partnership model. This is a field sales role in our already established Central California region including Santa Cruz County, San Luis Obispo County, Monterey County, San Benito County, Stanislaus County, Merced County and surrounding foothill areas. We compensate well with a competitive base salary and an equally advantageous commission structure for those hitting or exceeding their sales quotas.
As a top-performing sales professional, you’re accustomed to longer sales cycles with bigger paydays and have acquired solid experience selling to public agencies, contractors and specifiers. Your technical acumen and consultative skills will be essential for success as you listen to the voice of the customer while building and managing strong client relationships.
We have built more than 30 years of business on core strengths - quality products & services, understanding customer needs, exceptional customer service, and a strong work ethic - so we are looking for a professional who shares our values. Also important is your ability to effectively communicate cross-functionally within our organization and our growing list of partner companies. Proficiency in Salesforce.com or CRM software will enable you to productively track your sales progress. The need for heavy road time to visit customers in the territory on a daily basis is required. But being back to your home office at the end of each day is expected.
