Business Development Representative

| Seattle
Our mission at Suplari is to shine the light on intelligence so that companies can invest in growth, innovation and their people. Suplari’s software leverages machine learning and AI technologies to deliver actionable insights from a company’s spend and procurement data and easily visualizes these tailored recommendations and data trends in a clean, user-friendly interface. Customers realize hard dollar cost savings and effectively manage supplier risk that is often hidden within millions of data points and takes hours of manpower and clunky spreadsheets to uncover. 
Suplari is truly making an impact for customers such as Nordstrom, 21st Century Fox, and Sonos, (just to name a few) and we’re just getting started. 
Job Description
Suplari is seeking an experienced Business Development Representative to work from our downtown Seattle office.
As a Business Development Representative at Suplari, you will strategically seek out and deliver qualified new business leads to our Account Executives.
We highly value the Business Development function as a critical component of Suplari's growth. This is a hands-on position–you won't be just another seat in a pod. 
You will be talking day in and day out with potential customers: a procurement professional struggling with data visibility, or an innovator wanting to build a world class strategic sourcing team. As a crucial member of our sales team, you will also have the opportunity to be closely mentored and developed by a tight-knit team of seasoned enterprise sales professionals who are invested in your professional growth. 
Suplari is comprised of ~40 passionate team members who spend most of their time innovating and evolving for our customers. While we have some pretty awesome perks (monthly happy hours, social outings, and onsite massages), most of all, we believe in respect, ownership, and transparency. 
What you’ll be doing: 
  • Managing a high volume of daily outbound emails and calls to targeted accounts and following up on inbound leads to achieve (and ideally exceed) pre-defined sales goals (qualified leads, appointments).
  • Qualifying leads and effectively positioning Suplari in order to set appointments for Regional and Mid-Market Account Executives.
  • Engaging potential clients via email and phone to ensure leads are continuously being presented/converted to appointments.
  • Developing targeted account lists.
  • Creating personalized outreach strategies for potential accounts.
  • Collaborating with Marketing to support successful outreach campaigns.
  • Managing status of prospects and leads, and effectively reporting accurate customer data in CRM.
What you bring: .
  • 0-1 years experience (entry-level). 
  • Some sales experience, ideally with sales outreach (cold-call/email).
  • Excellent written & verbal communication skills.
  • Spectacular phone presence.
  • Must be driven, motivated, and be able to take initiative, while also being a team player.
  • Solid presentation skills.
  • A college degree (BA/BS) or equivalent experience is preferred.
  • Willingness to develop deep product knowledge and proficiently give sales demos as necessary.
We’d love to hear from you if: 
  • You love being a part of a small, dynamic, and agile organization that encourages you to learn and grow.
  • You love finding solutions to interesting problems.
  • You are passionate about using your experience and expertise to inspire the team.
Why Suplari?
  • Competitive compensation package
  • Ownership through equity and options
  • Comprehensive, company-paid health benefits
  • Been there, done that team: Our management team has a track record of success at companies such as HP, Amazon, Apptio, Skytap, iConclude, Trulia, and Zillow
  • Suplari is backed by top tier venture capital investors Madrona Venture Group, Shasta Ventures, Amplify Partners, Two Sigma Ventures and Workday Ventures.
  • Monthly Happy Hours, Friday Bagels, Social Outings, and Mind-Body-Spirit Days (including onsite massages!).
  • Ability to make a critical impact at an early stage company

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined as a relatively new engineer with predominantly front-end code skills. My code level and ability has grown thanks to mentorship and exposure to other areas of our stack. As a frontend developer my attention to detail and understanding of user experience has enhanced because of our excellent UX designer.
