Business Development Representative

  • Contract: Full-time

Job Description

We're looking for a business development representative based out of North America to join our growing global sales team. This is a role for someone ambitious who is early in their career.

  • You will help new Qwilr trial users have an excellent first experience, reaching out to them quickly, and offering friendly and helpful advice and guidance.
  • It will be your job to help them understand Qwilr, remove any early roadblocks and ultimately help them quickly get real value from our product. Trial users that have the potential to be large Qwilr customers will be shared with the local Account Executives - smaller trial users who would make great Qwilr customers will be yours to close.

Note: This is remote North American role - but you will need to be comfortable working mainly PST hours.

What we're looking for:

  • You are naturally curious and have a history of learning new things quickly. At Qwilr, our product is always evolving, as is our market. Things will change - you need to be comfortable adapting to that change.
  • You are eager to try new things, to learn and to adapt as things change. This role will work on problems that have not yet been solved. To do so will require flexibility, intelligence and the ability to adjust your approach as needed.
  • You excel at managing yourself like a successful business. You are highly organised, you set and achieve goals with regularity, you create a great customer experience, and you make your teammates better.
  • You love talking to people - and are excited about Qwilr. We get thousands of inbound leads per month and you'll be telling them about Qwilr every day.
  • You are interested in sales because you love helping people win. It energises you to work alongside people to improve their business.

Above all, you’re an entrepreneur and are excited by the prospect of building your business and hitting you and your teams goals.

Skill Requirements

  • 1-4 years of work experience (we're looking for people early in their careers)
  • Past experience dealing with a high volume of customers on a daily basis
  • At least 1 year of experience in a sales capacity
  • We love numbers, so feel free to include activity targets or sales targets/ achievements in previous roles.

About the Company

Before we used PCs, we wrote on A4 notepads, added up in grid-lined ledger books, and presented using overhead transparencies. Microsoft turned those three basic manual technologies into the core of its Office suite: Word, Excel and Powerpoint. These were – and are – powerful technologies. But even as Microsoft and Google have helped to bring them to the cloud, they remain skeuomorphic renditions of technology from the 20th century (and earlier).

Qwilr has set documents free from the skeuomorphs. We believe that the future of documents is online. Not as sharable A4 documents, but as webpages. Not as things we print out (and eventually put into landfill), but as things we view on smartphones, tablets & desktops.

Our work has a singular focus: to make it easier for individuals and businesses to create beautiful web docs with Qwilr. We want to set people – and their ideas and messages – free from static docs that are still at best an updated spin on a 1980s technology. We do this because we know that when you embrace the web, you can do so much more.

We’re committed to this vision because we want to see a world where people at work spend time on the core parts of their job. The parts that make them happy. The parts that bring in the dollars. We want to set sales people free from fiddling with Powerpoint. We want to see producers uninhibited in indesign. We want to see the graphic designer unchained from changing templates, and unleashed on the most valuable projects.

Qwilr is not just about power and beauty, it’s about efficiency. We want every document to be on brand without people having to think about it. We want the best pieces of copy to be at everyone’s fingertips. We want every version to be the right version.

Right now, our vision lives as our powerful Qwilr docs, which include a simple and intuitive quoting and proposal tools that will help sales teams sell more and look better with less effort. We are working non stop to build and expand our product.

Join us on that journey: sign up or join our team.
