  • Identify and help to develop resources that will improve the sales process and conversion rate.
  • Provide feedback to developers and executive staff that would enhance the product as well as the overall customer experience.
  • Independently plan, organize and prioritize your work; you will wear a few hats in this role, and since you will be working remotely, you need to be an energetic self-starter who is diligent about completing your work.
  • Work 40+ hours/week based on the demands of the position and the current lead pipeline.
