Job description

... a note from your future ...


Dear Sales Associate,


I know the word "sales" makes you cringe. Me too, and while that is technically what we do in this department, it never quite feels like the right word for it.


Yes, we have sales goals, 'cause this is a business after all, but we try to hit them by being awesome humans that #BuildAwesomeExperiences. If we're not hitting them, we #BreatheCuriosity and figure out why, together. #CreateCommunity


Okay - what's with the hashtags? Those are some of our Core Values, which I know you love to quote as much as we do, because around here we #EmbraceQuirky.


When we first met you, we knew right away you were cut from the same cloth. That adventurous curiosity, love of exploring, and desire to work smart so you can feed your life passions at the same time - it all lined up. Your slightly-geeky excitement in the interview when we asked you "what's your favorite app/software" and your vivid story about how you felt when Slack changed their logo and how reading their blog post shifted your perspective. #CommunicateCompassion


In spring of 2021, when our company was fast-growing in Pandemic-era decided to take the plunge and hire a Sales Associate, we barely could have dreamed about how awesomely you would step up and #SeizeOwnership of the new role. We figured, at minimum we needed someone with a flexible schedule working remotely, who was solid and dependable, and who was detail oriented to book customers onto experiences - like responding to new deal inquiries and organizing them in HubSpot CRM or researching lists of interesting companies that we might target as potential new team-building guests.


Little did we know that within the first quarter you'd already be chatting with clients with a super fast response time, fielding phone calls with style and that honest and authentic way you have of chatting with new people like you've known them for years, plowing through inboxes and Asana task-lists like a productivity machine!


The way we think of you: You've got the people-skills, creativity, critical listening and thinking chops, attention to detail, understanding of data and trends and you LOVE what we do! They GET IT. And you want to help our guests find an awesome culinary experience for their team that'll be the best team-building they've ever done.


We can't wait to have you in our weekly team meetings, brainstorming solves for issues, coordinating with the Product team about what our guests are looking for next, checking in with the Operations manager to make sure we're on point with guest expectations, and bringing your awesome ideas to the table!

Looking forward,
