Field Account Executive (Mid-South, Northeast or Southeast US)

NoRedInk - Multiple Locations or Remote - Full time

Founded by a former English teacher, NoRedInk’s mission is to help students unlock their writing potential. Our learning engine engages students through an interest-based, adaptive curriculum and provides them with real-time feedback, guided peer reviews, and self-reflection exercises to more effectively improve their skills at an accelerated pace. Our platform also collects data to provide educators and the school administrators actionable insights on how they can most meaningfully support the academic progress of their student body. We are one of the fastest-growing ed-tech companies in the country; driven by our steadfast aim to help millions of students strengthen their writing skills and, in turn, their future prospects, we have already spread to 50% of US school districts.

We are looking for a talented Account Executive to join our field sales team. In this role, you will own either the mid-south territory (primarily Texas and surrounding states), the Northeast territory, or Southeast territory and will work with principals and district administrators across this region to build consensus and trust.

  • Meet or exceed quarterly and annual revenue targets
  • Develop mastery of the NoRedInk solution and the competitive landscape
  • Deliver effective, engaging, and interactive presentations and product demonstrations that highlight our strong value propositions and align them to the specific needs of each district
  • Use Salesforce and Outreach to track sales opportunities and activities, ensuring data integrity and enabling our team to work collaboratively
  • Forecast accurately and transparently

You have:

  • 4+ years of Enterprise SaaS sales experience and a track record of personally selling and closing complex technical solutions to K-12 Districts in excess of 100K
  • A track record of hitting and exceeding quota
  • An established network of high-level decision-makers (i.e., Superintendents, Curriculum Directors)
  • Availability to travel within your assigned territory as needed
  • Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communications skills
  • The ability to learn new technologies quickly
  • Intrinsic motivation, creativity, and tenacity
  • Passion, strong work ethic and true desire to make a difference
  • Active interest in working for a small start-up with a talented team
  • A degree from a four-year college or university
