Seattle, WA, USA

A bit about us

Sendle is a B Corporation and the first 100% carbon neutral delivery service in the United States, Australia and Canada. We build shipping that is good for the world and help small businesses thrive by making parcel delivery simple, reliable and affordable and doing that by harnessing major courier networks to create a delivery service that levels the playing field for small businesses.

We have made huge strides towards our goal of becoming the largest SMB eCommerce courier in the World, moving from a single country operation in Australia to a successful launch and operation in the US and Canada. This role will be key to our success as we continue to expand into new markets, launch new products, and grow and scale our teams.

A bit about the role

  • Communicating with new business accounts to convert them into happy senders
  • Building and maintaining a steady pipeline of new business senders
  • Working efficiently to prioritize inbound inquiries and outbound sales
  • Achieving growth and hitting sales targets
  • Thinking about process improvements and smart ways to work efficiently
  • Being flexible, adaptable and resilient to change
  • Working autonomously within a small, smart team

Let’s talk about you

  • To be smart and quick-witted. You’ll also need to be a positive person who is diligent, has a 'never give up’ attitude and loves detail. It's not just the ability to communicate that matters, it is the ability to build rapport, keep track of the details, and get excited about converting an inquiry into a happy account holder.
  • To have great communication skills. You can break down complex problems for B2B or small business customers and provide great solutions that meet their needs.
  • To enjoy technology and be a quick learner of new software. A consultative approach to sales and SPIN or experience with other customer-centric sales methods is a plus.
  • To have an excellent understanding of what makes Sendle a good-fit for both us and our customers. You’ll be excited about converting prospective customers into happy account holders when you find this fit, and you’ll know how to do it.
  • You’ll thrive in a fast-paced, changeable environment. You’ll enjoy the minimum viable process (and sometimes have to build a process), and will look for ways to improve, save time and do things smarter.
