“We inspire individuals to fulfill their potential through the power of listening”
Listenwise is an award winning listening skills platform for students and teachers in middle and high schools. Listenwise, a proud partner of NPR, curates a growing collection of professionally produced podcasts, aligned to state standards in ELA, social studies, and science. We harness the power of listening to advance literacy and learning in all students by using podcasts as classroom texts, amplifying content and providing students practice in required listening skills. Listenwise has users in all 50 states and internationally. We are based in an EdTech co-working space (LearnLaunch) in Boston’s Seaport District and growing rapidly.
We have spent the last few years honing our product market fit and creating a repeatable sales model. We are now in a position to apply these lessons at scale. It will be your job to help us accelerate this growth. You will need to embody all of the characteristics of a strong sales person- objection handling, empathy, and grit. Equally important is the way you work with others---collaboration with colleagues and a desire to serve customers is critical.
As an SMB Account Executive, you will be the first voice that our customers hear, listening to and understanding the needs of teachers and administrators. You will qualify opportunities through phone and email to move them through the funnel yourself or hand them off to the Director of Sales. This is an end to end revenue generating role. You will be responsible for a new business quota.
Equally important to the candidate’s skill-sets, is the candidate’s fit within our business. We are looking for someone who is entrepreneurial, fast paced, data-driven, a creative thinker who looks for opportunities within challenges, has a competitive drive to win, and values collaboration.
