Inside Sales Account Executive

Writable - Remote - Full time

Why You’ll Be a Great Addition to Team Writable:

You are a kind, dedicated team player. You genuinely enjoy being part of a collaborative team and helping team members and potential customers. You realize that sales is about building authentic long-term relationships.

You are a self-starter who values continuous professional learning. You don’t wait for someone to teach you something new, you independently search for the knowledge and connections that will get you where you want to be. You are open to feedback.

You are open to change. As Writable evolves, you may be asked to work on a new product line, in a new territory, or to try a new sales process.

You value quality over quantity. You have a keen attention to detail and believe that writing 10 well-researched, intentional emails is better than 100 cookie-cutter ones.

The position is fully remote and will work alongside internal enterprise sales, our customer success and marketing teams, a co-founder, as well as a larger sales team at our partner Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

In this role, you will:

  • Actively move leads through the sales pipeline while learning about a potential teacher or school leader’s instructional needs
  • Educate and engage new prospects by answering questions or sending on-demand resources.
  • Make outgoing sales calls seeking to expand from teacher access to school-level purchase
  • Handle incoming inquiries, including school-level demo requests
  • Qualify and nurture active teachers during trials and pilots, seeking to convert them to school-level sales
  • Conduct on-demand online demos via video conference
  • Maintain deal updates and pipeline health through real-time use of CRM (HubSpot)
  • Manage renewal quotes via quote automation software, PandaDoc
  • Proactively search for new, innovative ways to build and grow the business
  • Measure and report out on key metrics of success
  • Maintain effective communication and collaboration across enterprise sales, marketing, co-founders, and customer success teams.

You are an ideal candidate if you are:

  • Empathetic; you connect well with other people and understand teachers’ and administrators’ pain points
  • Entrepreneurial; you’re willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done
  • An excellent communicator; gifted at asking clarifying questions
  • Optimistic; you are not afraid to make cold calls or send emails, you brush it off when people tell you "no thanks"
  • High EQ, have a can-do attitude and a bias to action, with an ability to work effectively on a small team and wear many hats
  • Motivated to meet / surpass self-created goals
  • Adaptable to change, it’s how you learn and grow
  • Proficient in the use of a CRM (HubSpot or Salesforce preferred)
  • Experienced at selling and communicating via technology (i.e. Zoom, Meet, Teams)
  • Committed to educational equity
  • Completing your first 2-5 years of K12 educational sales or partnership role and looking to join a small team where you’ll shine
  • Experienced at a role in the K-12 education space
  • BA/BS college degree
