The Job

Own Account Development Representatives (ADRs) play a multi-faceted role that is integral to the success of the company’s go-to-market strategy. ADRs are at the crux of sales and are responsible for one of the most important steps in the sales process: building pipeline. The ADR role is perfect for someone who is still early in their sales career who is hungry, intelligent, and motivated to succeed.

This ADR will receive sales training, technical product training, and will have the opportunity to work closely with Enterprise Account Executives (AE) targeting the large accounts.
