Overview of WorkHound:
At WorkHound, we believe people should love the work they do. We live this as a team and through our product.

We are building the megaphone for workers that don’t have a voice.

We’ve got a foothold in trucking, where the average company turns over 95% of their workers every year and spends ridiculous amounts of money in recruiting. The same thing happens in industries we’re exploring, like nursing, warehousing, and manufacturing.

Why? Because workers don’t feel respected. We amplify their voice, help companies understand the needs of their staff, and improve their culture in the process.

Why we’re hiring:
-Our customer base is growing, our goals are big, and we need a kick ass individual to join our team.
-We’re looking for someone with hustle and heart to help us grow even faster.
-But we don’t need your average sales rep. We need a builder. An A-player that will take this role, own it, grow it, and make our team even stronger. We want someone who is personable, hungry, and eager to do meaningful work.

You are responsible for:
-Helping us set up deals. You’ll follow a process that helped us grow 500% in the past year.
-Educating prospective customers via phone calls, email outreach, LinkedIn messaging, and other creative outlets.
-Traveling for trade shows or visiting prospects.
-Conducting in-person and online software demonstrations of our platform.
-Escalating issues and customer feedback to the product team to help -improve our platform.
-Transitioning closed deals to the customer success team for implementation.

Requirements for crushing it:
-Be super organized. You can create calm out of chaos.
-You embrace cold calling and are able to turn strangers into allies.
-You’re quick on your feet and can react to tough challenges in the heat of the moment.
-Take rejection in stride. We either win or we learn.
-Have a sense of humor!
-Great written and verbal communication. Saying “y’all” is cool.
-Have humility. You accept when you don’t know something and go learn.
-Be a self starter. You will be making decisions from day one.
-Ability to challenge and debate issues of importance to the organization. --Ability to look at situations from several points of view and take action.

Where we need you to grow:
-At WorkHound we move fast, we wear a lot of hats, and we have a damn good time doing it. You are one of our early hires. You will have an opportunity to shape this role and help grow with the company.
-We’ll hold you accountable to improve the job, not just do it.
-Every month you’ll be responsible for showing how you made the company better.
-Expect to continue growing. Be ready to train the next person to take this on.

Bonus points for:
-Experience in sales, customer success, or customer-facing operations
-Experience in software or other fast-paced work environment
-Experience working around the trucking industry
-Experience building and leading teams
-Familiarity with how software products are built and serviced
-Ability to monitor company OKRs and KPIs

What we offer:
- Base salary + uncapped commission
- Medical, Dental, and Vision coverage for you
- Unlimited vacation
- Equity in the company
