Job Description

We are looking for a savvy and polished quota-carrying sales rep to manage a territory and generate revenue by selling Golden Helix products to new and existing customers. If you have business-to-business sales experience, are comfortable selling lab and enterprise level software packages to smart and sophisticated customers, and want to work at an innovative, fast-paced company where you’ll have a major impact, this could be the right job for you. We are also willing to look at candidates with less experience, but who are willing to start off at an entry-level inside sales position and focus on prospecting for territory managers and following up with prospects who are driven in through the marketing funnel. There is significant growth potential to manage a full territory starting off in this role.

Job Description: As a member of the sales team, you will drive revenue by managing a territory and targeted accounts. You will have the opportunity to prospect within your territory, follow up with incoming leads and proactively contact customers to sell additional functionality or additional licenses, as well as generate referrals for new business. You will also have the opportunity to follow up with customers and prospects who attend marketing events, including webcasts, workshops or tradeshows.


5-7 years of business-to-business inside sales (phone sales) experience. Previous experience selling scientific software or equipment strongly preferred. We are also willing to consider a less-qualified candidate who will work with the CEO and other Area Directors to proactively contact prospects with the potential to move into a full Area Director role
