The Adobe Inside Sales team is looking for a high-energy, competitive, and self-motivated individual to join our Adobe Sales Academy as a Sales Development Rep (SDR).
Overview of Adobe Sales Academy
The Adobe Sales Academy is a multi-phase elite accelerated sales program designed to take top sales talent from a Sales Development Rep (SDR), to an Account Development Rep (ADR), to Inside Sales Rep (ISR), and eventually a Field Account Executive (AE). With multiple locations in North America and Europe, this program is designed to see you grow, develop and succeed. At Adobe, we want to build the next generation of sales professionals, and that starts with you!
First Phase: Sales Development Rep (SDR) As an SDR, you’ll onboard through our 4 week world-class inside sales enablement program to improve your selling skills and learn the basics about Adobe Experience Cloud products. Over the next 6 months, you'll focus on inbound leads from our Territory business segment to generate qualified opportunities.
Second Phase: Business Development Representative (BDR) As a BDR, you’ll sharpen your selling skills and build upon your knowledge of Adobe Experience Cloud solutions. Our experienced sales team will teach you how to prospect and qualify customers, contribute to the sales pipeline and help you develop solution knowledge.
Third Phase: Inside Sales Representative (ISR) Upon successful completion of the first and second phases, you’ll be ramped and ready to move into an ISR role. You’ll be a product expert, educating companies on the ways they can take their business to the next level. You will manage the full sales cycle, converting leads, securing renewals, selling consulting services and closing deals—all you need to prepare for an Account Executive role. The very best will eventually find themselves as an Account Executive. By this time, your ability to handle complex sales cycles will allow you to take full control. You’ll go out to the field and drive revenue for new and existing accounts, and meet customers in-person to build strong, lasting relationships.
