proven and trustworthy team to positively impact an industry plagued by unprofessional freelancers and cowboy agencies.

Your Role

You will be responsible for closing over $600,000 per year in revenue throughout Western Canada and the US by prospecting and selling to new clients and increasing revenue from existing customers. Specific responsibilities include:

  • Generate leads via your existing relationships, networking, cold calling, building referral partnerships, etc
  • Act as the first point of contact for all inbound inquiries
  • Pre-qualification of leads via phone calls and video chats
  • Perform basic research and analyses and prepare consultative sales presentations

  • Experience using a CRM is an asset
  • Outgoing, with excellent communication skills

We also provide our team members with a competitive benefits package. We’ll tell you all about it when we speak.
