The ideal profile

You’re a confident, disciplined, self-motivated hunter AND farmer (if you think that means shooting moose and harvesting corn, don’t read any further) who’s hungry for a challenge and loves to win. As a consultative salesperson, you view selling as an opportunity to create value for clients by discovering their needs before offering a solution. Your independence is more important than your interdependence; you’d rather be out meeting new people every day instead of hanging out by the water cooler (you don’t have a choice… we don’t have a water cooler).

  • 2+ years sales experience with a proven record of success and distinction.
  • Must be ambitious, hard working, and well organized.
  • Ability to work both individually and in a team environment.
  • Strong communicator with excellent problem solving, relationship building, and objection handling skills.
  • Intermediate computer knowledge; proficient in all Microsoft Office applications.
  • Experience with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software such as Salesforce.com.
  • Know how to work and create a territory.
  • Flexibility and willingness to travel.

Assets (not required)

  • Experience in online media/marketing/advertising or the hospitality industry.
  • Business-to-business (B2B) sales experience.
  • Business degree, diploma or equivalent experience in a related field.
  • Knowledge of local Toronto (and GTA) restaurants.
  • You love food and dining out, otherwise known as a Foodie.

Availability

Full-time (40+ hrs/week). This is a long-term career position with opportunities for growth.

Location

Headquartered at Yonge and St. Clair, you’ll have access to protected territory in Toronto and may be required to travel to surrounding areas within the GTA.

Compensation & Benefits

  • Full commission + bonuses. High performance is rewarded.
  • Comprehensive health and dental.
  • New laptop provided.
  • Training program.
  • Career advancement opportunities, including Sales Management.
  • Award/recognition program.
