Business Development Representative

Paragon

Paragon

Sales & Business Development
Los Angeles, CA, USA
Posted on Tuesday, April 2, 2024
We are looking for a Sales Development Representative to join our Growth team and help scale our inbound and outbound engine! You’ll be responsible for leveraging our ever-evolving playbook to book qualified meetings (demos) with companies that fit our customer profile.
If you are hard-working, hungry to learn, competitive, and want your performance to have a direct impact on your career progression (and take-home pay), this is the role for you.
To be considered for this role, you must apply through Lever, and include a 2 minute video* of you selling a piece of technology (anything technology related): https://jobs.lever.co/useparagon.com/15bdf5d1-0f0d-485c-90a8-7bd06d776e03
*You can use Loom.com to film the video, and include the link under 'Why do you think you're a good fit for this role' in the screening questions.
A day in the life:
1. Show up on time every morning, with an organized plan for who you’re prospecting/following up with that day
2. Respond to any replies, messages, and leads that have come in overnight to get demos booked
3. Conduct research on and reach out to target accounts and prospects
4. Review the performance/metrics of your work to identify areas of improvement
5. Share creative ideas with the team on how to drive better outcomes
6. Spend the time to understand the product 1% better every. single. day.
7. Reach out for feedback and help whenever you need it
8. Celebrate the wins as a team every day, big or small
This role will be challenging and will test your grit, but if you’re up for it, you will learn faster than in other similar roles.
