SchoolStatus

Client Executive

Sales – Atlanta, Georgia
Department Sales
Employment Type Full-time
Minimum Experience Experienced
Compensation Competitive

DESCRIPTION

We are an enterprise software company providing a solution specifically for the K12 market.  In short, we turn data analytics into meaningful communication.  School districts already track tons of data.  They don't use it effectively, however, to communicate with parents, and other educators, to help students succeed.  SchoolStatus provides a solution for the gap and helps districts use their data in remarkable ways!

The Client Executive is a quota carrying direct field sales rep.  The CE works as a team with the Inside Sales Team and is responsible for new sales and customer renewals within their defined territory.  The CE will qualify new opportunities and work through the Buying Cycle to help prospects acquire the SchoolStatus solution.  The metro Atlanta-based role requires a significant amount of travel to meet one-on-one with educators across GA, NC, and SC.  The role also requires participation in industry events and consortiums to effectively represent our capabilities, build relationships, and efficiently build new sales pipeline.

ABOUT US

SchoolStatus is a young company based in Mississippi dedicated to changing education forever by providing awesome tools for the K-12 market. We strive daily to create the best data and communication suite on the planet by partnering with schools and listening to their needs.

We have a culture built around freedom and responsibility. We believe as we grow, we should provide our employees with increased responsibility and freedom to perform their jobs. We aren't hung up on titles or endless conference calls. We recruit and retain best-in-class talent and regularly judge all staff by the following premise: "would we enthusiastically rehire this person?".

We are a team of devoted individuals who know our relevant areas of expertise quite well, and we also know when we need help. We believe in the power of a group of highly motivated, intelligent, and responsible folks surrounding themselves with the same type of people and seeing where it takes us.

We started out as a back-of-the-napkin idea and have blossomed into a multi-million dollar enterprise by providing amazingly useful products for our customers. Are you ready to a part of that?

ABOUT YOU

Throughout your career, you've been the 'go to' person which your colleagues and managers depend upon to get the job done. You routinely go above and beyond, and exceed expectations.

You are naturally persuasive, both personally and professionally. You are competitive and you hate to lose. You will doggedly learn from losses to avoid repeating mistakes. You have an easy communication style - effective at telling stories without being verbose.

You obsess over the details, and take pride in doing excellent work, no matter how big or small the task.

You enjoy traveling and meeting new people in the K-12 education space and can adapt to changes in the educational landscape.

You have experience selling in the K12 or public sector market space. You understand the challenges education administrators face on a daily basis staying engaged and current with technology while balancing time and resource constraints. You have effectively and consistently sold technology in the face of those challenges and have a history of developing satisfied customers as a result.

You are a self-starter who wants to join a young company on a rocket-ship trajectory so you can unleash your natural ability to position an awesome technology for sales success.

You work independently (meaning you don’t require constant instruction), and also know when to ask your teammates for help.

You are a team player who shows up on time and doesn’t complain. You see the opportunity in every challenge and obstacle. You are looking to surround yourself with the smartest group of people you have ever worked with because you know they will help you step up your game...and you, theirs.

You get passionate about the solution you sell, and believe together we have the means to change education forever!
