Job Posting for Entry Level Sales Professional at Altitude Development Group
Altitude is growing, and we are looking for a high achiever who loves helping people, has an ownership mindset, and will thrive in a B2B outside sales role. This would be an ideal fit if you enjoy being out of an office, meeting new people, and managing your own schedule to achieve your results. We have a team culture where you will be surrounded by fun, competitive, independent, growth-minded people. We take what we do seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously!
Our Work Ethic & Mindset:
We believe in finding people who are a great fit with our culture and are already living out our core values of Ownership, Growth, and Service in their personal and professional life.

Your primary daily responsibility will be scheduling individual or group presentations with owners and their employees, completing the presentations, and closing sales with clients. The immediate goal for entry-level sales professionals is building your own book of business through new client acquisition, with your long-term sales goals eventually shifting to reservicing your established clients and following up on new referrals from your existing client base. You will report your daily and weekly sales metrics, set up your schedule and goals in advance each week, and participate in various coaching and development calls and meetings with your trainer or your team.
