We dedicate ourselves to providing accurate, non-partisan, impactful information to the right people at the right time so that they can act with confidence and speed. We experiment to avoid being disrupted and we have fun disrupting others. And we are not afraid to risk failure if it means being the best at what we do.

  • Driven: Your calm demeanor and positive outlook help you exceed goals, make gains during a tough quarter, and successfully improvise when things don’t go as planned. 
  • Collaborative: You welcome feedback and aren’t afraid to ask challenging questions. 
  • A Problem Solver: You’re focused on solutions and want our Pro team to succeed. We need your winning attitude. 

What You'll Do:

  • Manage a pipeline of 20-25 evaluations through full sales life cycle, to close. You will use your skills in evaluation and negotiation to close opportunities and achieve established quarterly revenue goals. 
  • Recognize and relay feedback from the market and clients for product success. You’ll use that same skill to implement personal feedback from managers for your development. 

What You'll Need: 

  • B.A. / B.S. required. 
  •  2-5 years of proven new business development, selling an SaaS or subscription service product and experience hitting target revenue quotas. 
  • Exposure to Salesforce.com or other CRMs used to manage pipeline and other sales lifecycle efforts. 
  • Experience in a fast-paced environment and a firm understanding of the DC marketplace.

We are driven by our values. We are relentless contributors, disruptors, collaborators, and talent cultivators. Our culture is defined by grit, total integrity, and a prioritization on innovation. 

We value our people. We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, and retirement plans. In our commitment to work-life balance flexibility, we offer 12 weeks paid parental leave and flexible vacation.
