Summer Startup Sales Intern Bootcamp @ Y Combinator Company at HigherMe

Boston · Internship
Apply to HigherMe

Job Description


Always be closing.

So you want to "do" a startup? Or you want to "do" sales? The reality is that the two are one and the same.

If you ever want to do your own startup or build your own company in the future, you need to learn how to sell. We're excited to teach you how this summer.

HigherMe is a Y Combinator backed company revolutionizing the recruitment industry across a number of industries. We're backed by some of the greatest investors in the world - we've raised a million dollars in funding, and added hundreds of customers in the last several months.

But we want more - we'll be adding three 0's to the amount of money we've raised and the amount of customers we've served in the next 5 years, and we want you along for the ride.

Our intensive summer sales intern program - "bootcamp" would be more accurate - will prepare you for a career as an A-player in the startup technology world - either as a sales lead, or a company founder yourself.

You'll be cold calling, booking appointments, and doing demos for customers all across the country. If cold outreach is not something you're excited to try, this is not a good fit for you.

We anticipate hiring less than 1 in 100 people that apply to this role.

If those odds scare you - thanks for not wasting our time.

If those odds excite you - you're exactly the kind of person we want to talk to. Get after us! We're particularly impressed by candidates that record a video when they apply - it helps us cut to the chase really quickly!

Our office is near Downtown Crossing in Boston - we work long hours, we accomplish incredible things, and we only work with top talent. We're hopeful you want to join in and help us change the world.

You ready? S---'s about to get real. Get ready for the most life changing summer you'll ever have.

What We're Building

HigherMe is a Y Combinator company that helps hourly employers find, screen, and hire better employees faster. Companies like Dunkin' Donuts and Panera Bread trust us with the most important part of their operation: their people.

We provide a suite of software tools - assessments, career pages, applicant tracking, video resumes, interview scheduling, text-to-apply, paperless onboarding - that help improve efficiency, but we're also a growing network of candidates for hourly jobs, allowing us to also sell access to candidates.

Customers report significant time savings, reductions in turnover, and the ability to quickly and consistently hire higher-quality employees.

Applicants love us, because they can create a profile, used to apply for lots of jobs. They don't have to fill out a separate application each time, and can do everything on mobile.

With 77 million hourly workers, the potential to extend into other verticals (customer service, admin, on-demand, healthcare) is massive.
