Career Opportunity

Here's the corporate dribble HR made us put at the top of this ad listing: Acro Media is looking for a Business Development Professional to effectively guide prospective clients through the buyer's cycle and continue to nurture them to long lasting relationships.

That's done. Now here's what we really want. A seasoned sales vet. Someone that has been around the block and understands the importance of consistent prospecting activities. You can build a strong rapport and bond with people over the phone, via email, and in person. You strive to help prospects by identifying pain points and delivering the best solutions that can increase their ROI.

Here are some things we pride ourselves on being able to offer our staff:

Free stuff: Juice, pop, and coffee; choose your pleasure and enjoy.

Slappies: Tougher to explain but once a month we get together and have a little ceremony, some food, a few brews - no altars or corporate chants involved.

Fun day: We aim to have fun every day; however, every year for a day we cram a bunch of fun on ourselves. Weee!

SPARC Events: Sometimes we have an in-house breakfast, team building events, (less corny than it sounds), competitions, or just a plain little reward for no reason. It's a little spark in our usually normal days. Warning, we make you wear costumes. Often.

Culture: We're a certain type of people. We're all a little different and unique in our own way but we seem to work well together. No one's perfect and we embrace that. We take our work seriously, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Check out our site to get to know us! Feel free to dissect what and how we do what we do.

All careers come with a 30 day no-questions asked money-back-guarantee. If you are in any way unsatisfied with your career, we will return you to the workforce at absolutely NO COST to you (minus shipping and handling).

Below is some important stuff. These are some of the things you'd be doing and the skills you possess. If you're not an exact match, but what you see throughout entices you, send us your cover letter and resume.

The successful candidate will be able to:
  • Think on their feet and demonstrate exceptional problem solving skills
  • Can self motivate and keep themselves disciplined
  • Build strong rapport with clients and prospects via phone, email, and in person
  • Keep themselves and their tasks organized using the CRM software
  • Control and close effectively
  • Actively hunt for new leads and potential clients
  • Can handle rejection and not let it affect their work
  • Collaborate and work well in a team environment
  • Meet sales targets and quotas
  • Work towards win/win relationships
  • Set proper expectations and deliver on time

Relative Skills & Experience:
  • Minimum 1-3 years experience in a sales position
  • Proficiency with Sales Systems ie: Sandler Training
  • Consultative Business to Business sales
  • Industry related experience: Web Development, Ecommerce, and/or Digital Marketing
  • Comfortable with CRM software
  • A willingness to learn, develop and achieve new skills for personal and professional development.

How to Apply
Still interested? Ok great! Our first step to hanging your work hat here on the Acro coat rack is submitting a video of yourself answering the below 6 questions. Feel free to use your phone or computer to create your video, and it doesn't need to be pretty - it can be choppy. In this early stage we're looking first to see that you're a real person...oh you are? Ok great! Phewf! Now that you've passed that stage, we're looking next for more than just surface answers to our questions. So if you responded "being a perfectionist" or "Work/life balance" is your biggest weakness, please hit the back button now as we want to see who you really are!

Onto some technical boring details stuff. Our preferred video method is just a link to your newly created youtube video, but as mentioned anything goes so attachments are welcome too! (Provided of course they're small enough to send). If you're lost or struggling with any of the steps to creating and submitting us a video, (aside for this being proof that this job DEFINITELY is not for you) we'd recommend getting creative on a problem solving level (ie, google is your friend!) as unfortunately we won't be able to provide any technical assistance.

Here's the question list - have at 'er and happy videoing!

Tell us about yourself, why you want the job, and why Acro Media?
What would be your biggest challenge coming into the role?
Describe a time when you felt it was necessary to modify or change your actions in order to respond to the needs of another person?
Give us an example of a time when you had to go far above and beyond the original expectation of a project to get a job done?
Describe a decision you made that was a failure. What happened and why?
What is the number one thing that people would be surprised to know about you?

Submit all your goods (video, cover letter & resume) to - be sure to include the position you're after in the email subject line!
