Sales Development Representative

Paro is seeking a driven Sales Development Representative (SDR) to join our growing team and learn sales from the best. While years of sales experience is not necessary, a passion for helping small businesses thrive is a hard requirement. The role is directly responsible for acquiring new clients through a defined, multi-channel prospecting process. From the outset, you will be responsible for finding, nurturing and qualifying new leads. Over time your responsibilities will expand to encompass the full sales cycle, from establishing initial contact to closing deals. The goal is to advance to an Account Executive role as quickly as possible.

An open environment, constant feedback cycle, and flat hierarchy lead to an exceptionally collaborative culture. Sales Development Representatives will work directly with a team of experienced operations and fulfillment stakeholders to seamlessly execute deals.

If you’re passionate about startups, resilient, and ready for a fast-paced career in sales, then we want you to join our team.
