About Paddle

Paddle is a Toronto-based startup that helps employees find new jobs and understand grow careers, all with their current employer. Our product is powered by 440M people's career histories to figure out all of the possible career paths within an enterprise. This helps the employer too, as they try to realign talent in their organizations to their future strategy (plus, a lack of career growth is a top driver for employee attrition).

We are a venture-backed company and have graduated from FoundersFactory (London, UK), Acceleprise (San Francisco), and Ideaboost (Toronto) accelerators.

Our motivation is based on preparing the world for the future of work, and our product is one part of the broader transformation. We are passionate about improving careers.

We are a people-first organization with a strong focus on career growth for our team. We are excited to take on new challenges, we are self-starters, we find solutions (not just problems), we take time to reflect on our performance and give feedback to team members on theirs.

You must have impeccable communication skills, as well as the necessary know-how to focus on lead generation and strategic outreach.

This is a quota-carrying role with plenty of ownership and room for growth. You will primarily be responsible for generating qualified opportunities, but you will have the opportunity to remain engaged throughout the full enterprise sales process from prospecting to discovery to close of sale.
