Sales Development Representative

at Puppet, Inc. Portland, OR

Hi, I’m Tyler Schultz, Manager of Sales Development at Puppet,

I’m looking for a hungry, bold, and passionate Sales Development Representative to join our highly driven and talented team. Our SDRs are a key part of selling products and services using modern prospecting techniques and best in class tools. This is a great opportunity for an aspiring inside sales professional who wants to learn how to prospect and generate business within commercial and enterprise SaaS sales. Cohesion on this team is key, so if you’re applying, you’ll need to be a team player! You will learn how to get the attention of prospects amidst all the noise by researching companies and people, using your creativity, and connecting the dots. Our team has a burning desire to be successful and exceed expectations, so if that matches your style, don’t hesitate to apply.

At Puppet, the Sales Development Team is the tip of the arrow for sales. We work closely with Marketing to make the most of the campaigns they run, while also partnering closely with our Commercial and Field Sales Representatives by leveraging their territory knowledge and strategies to build pipeline. 

As a Sales Development Representative at Puppet, you will:

  • Be an overlay to Commercial & Enterprise Field Reps to drive activities including proactive targeted outreach to prospects as well as developing qualified leads, setting meetings, preparing activity reports, updating and maintaining the sales database, and doing research on targeted companies and specific personas within those companies.
  • Conduct pre event activities to drive attendance to a specific event or post event follow up to increase our connection with attendees.
  • Work closely with Field Representatives to develop strategies for their territories and execute tactical elements to support those . You will be in a unique position to learn from some of the most experienced Enterprise Sales Reps in our industry. No matter your background or tenure, there’s always something new to learn.

You are...

  • An excellent communicator with a high emotional IQ. You strive to be articulate and empathetic in your interactions. You have a way with words—you can write a great email and carry on a good conversation.
  • You are a team player who values outcomes over effort—you are someone who is driven to succeed both as an individual but also as a team. You care about quality, wanting to get the job done as well as you can. Hungry to learn, genuinely curious and know how to get the answers to your questions.
  • Gutsy and self-directed when it comes to problem-solving and working on multiple projects at once. You’re looking to work with a team of high performers where you’ll be responsible for the impact you make and the freedom to explore your creativity. Working with folks in different time zones will be standard issue for you around here, so being able to stay determined, even when the answers aren’t in front of you, is essential.
  • You are determined to succeed. A lot about being a successful SDR is attitude and drive. When the going gets rough, you don’t throw in the towel and accept defeat - you push forward and aim to win.

Valuable experiences and skills you’ll bring to Puppet

  • 1-3 years of work or internship experience in lead generation, sales, business, operations, marketing or related
  • Proven track record of achieving measurable goals
  • Avid technology evangelist

Bonus, but not required (shout about it in your application if you have experience)

  • Sales Development, customer service, or account management experience for a SaaS or B2B solution
  • Experience with Salesforce.com or other CRM
  • Experience with Salesloft. Best practices and applicability
  • Cold-calling experience preferred
  • Spanish and/or Portuguese language skills (not required)

P.S. Don’t identify with this opportunity? Don’t worry about it - let us know if you think this is the place for you.

We are hiring at various experience levels and we’re particularly interested in having a diverse team with a broad set of skills and viewpoints. If this seems like your dream job, but you’re not sure if you qualify, apply anyway!
