At Pento, we're building a better and faster payroll experience for companies and their employees to run payroll like it's 2022. We're a remote-first company, with a team in over 17 different countries.
We're looking for a Sales Development Representative to kick off their career in sales, help us generate, qualify and excite new leads, and be the first point of contact for all of Pento's sales efforts.
The role 💬
You’ll join our growing SDR team and be in charge of researching, identifying and connecting with our future customers to help them understand how Pento can bring them an incredible payroll experience. You'll help our customers on their journey to empower their people to have as much impact as possible, by taking away layers of admin and error-prone back and forth that no modern company should have to contend with.
You'll focus on our UK market & be the voice of our outbound sales prospecting. We have the tools and some process in place, so you won't need to figure everything out from scratch, but there's ample opportunity to experiment, and to bring diverse thought and creativity to the team and your daily work, and help us get to the best outcome, together.
We know what success looks like to us, and how you can get there, but we also believe our Pentos are at their best when they're driving self-reflection, owning their outcomes, and focussing on delivering impact. We're a hyper growth scale-up: if you're successful in your role, there will be plenty of opportunities to grow and take on more responsibility, and to move up into a quota-carrying Account Executive role.
More about the role and responsibilities
- During your day to day, you'll be proactively seeking new business opportunities and generating qualified leads, as well as building your contact database through research and profiling
- You'll use a multichannel approach (personalised videos, calls, emails, LinkedIn messages, etc) to generate new sales opportunities, using established but always improving sequencing and automation best practices
- As a true team player, you'll set up meetings or calls between (prospective) customers and sales executives to move the pipeline forward across the sales funnel with the information they need to close the deal
- You'll be self-reflective and accountable, providing visibility to the wider team by documenting and reporting on your progress, using best in class sales-enablement tools like Outreach
- You'll contribute to the wider team's success, regularly adopt new best practices and be willing to constructively challenge and provide feedback to help you and your team iterate and improve daily
- You'll have a true interest in learning everything about your prospects payroll processes and collecting insights around their pain points, as if they were your own
The role will be a great fit if... ✨
- You are highly motivated to build your career in sales
- You are proactive and willing to put in extraordinary effort to exceed your targets
- You have the ability to quickly understand and build rapport with potential customers, listen actively and leverage your knowledge effectively to articulate why Pento is the solution to their problem
- You have strong commercial instinct, resilience, and the ability to hit and exceed targets
- You have strong written and verbal communication skills
- You're a team player — you have a can-do attitude and a bias towards action
- You have enthusiasm and ambition, coupled with a desire to learn the sales process from start to finish
Don’t worry about being a 100% fit. That’s impossible nonsense, anyway. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity to you and you think it could work, let’s chat.
We're committed to building a team capable of building a product for everyone, representing different and varied backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. We welcome applications from everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, civil or family status, age, or disability.
