Are you a dynamic, high-performing, and hard-working individual who is looking to challenge yourself in new ways? The Classy sales team is hiring Business Development Representatives (BDRs) to support our push upmarket. The ideal candidate would have previous sales development experience, be excited to pursue a career in sales, and someone who has done their research on what makes an outstanding performer.

BDRs are often the first contact that a prospective customer has with Classy and spend their days conducting strategic outreach to decision makers of nonprofit organizations, while also following up and nurturing business relationships. BDRs are measured by their ability to strategically penetrate multiple departments within organizations to generate pipeline, facilitate qualifying calls and conduct discovery with high-level decision makers, and execute a seamless handoff of qualified prospects to our Account Executive team.

BDRs work closely with Account Executives, and thus gain a unique opportunity to develop their soft skills and business acumen from the guidance of senior sales reps; allowing BDRs to develop beneficial full cycle sales skills. The level of business and professional growth within this role is unmatched.

Success in this role is obtained by working closely with the Account Executive team to strategically target accounts, exceed monthly, quarterly, and yearly pipeline goals and handling pressure in a team-focused environment that is dedicated to success.

  • Use strategy and creativity to reach key decision makers within provided territory
  • Facilitate qualifying calls and conduct discovery with high-level decision makers
  • Methodically qualify, build, and manage an accurate sales pipeline in Salesforce using MEDDIC
  • Accurately document and track all activities in Salesforce
  • Consistently surpassing your monthly quotas through hard work, a proactive approach to growth, and implementing feedback
  • Thrive on change while remaining highly organized, optimistic, and coachable
  • Become an expert in online fundraising - asking insightful questions, overcoming objections and understanding your client’s needs will be critical to your success.

WHAT YOU’LL BRING (Required)

  • Bachelor's Degree
  • 1+ years of inside sales or relevant experience (selling over the phone/web preferred)
  • Outbound prospecting experience
  • Excellent listening, verbal and written skills
  • No fear of the phones!
