Attention Atlanta! Director of Sales Needed For A Video Production And Marketing Company | Digital Marketing Job Website

Sloane Staffing, a digital marketing job website, has new roles available in Atlanta, GA! Our client has been named one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in Atlanta. They are in growth mode and are looking to scale up their team and capacity to help take things to the next level.

 Are you the kind of person your peers look to for guidance, a steady perspective, and an impeccable eye for detail? Are you a natural leader of the pack, able to direct and inspire those around you to reach their full potential? When faced with a seemingly insurmountable challenge, do you rise up or run away?

Simply put — are you a relationships person who enjoys a challenge and loves crushing goals?

If so, you might be the right fit for their Director of Sales position.

Our client is looking for someone with PHD. No, not a PhD — PHD. Passion, Hunger, and Drive.

 As a Director of Sales, what will you do? Lead, empower, and organize a department that is instrumental to the growth of this fast-paced, game-changing video marketing company.

 You will join a vibrant and hard-working team that seeks out new business through call, email, offline, and social campaigns. However, in the Director of Sales role, you won’t be selling — you’ll be leading, organizing, and optimizing our team of sales masters. You won’t be doing the selling yourself, but you must know how to close a deal.

Our client is looking for team players — people who can work independently, collaborate effectively, are impeccably organized, and who want to win.

 This is an ideal position for someone who loves organization and who has an insane attention to detail. You will thrive in the Director of Sales role if you are extremely numbers-driven, you can comprehensively audit systems and processes, and you’re unashamed to admit you’re hella Type A.

 Key Responsibilities Include:

  • Taking accountability for meeting the sales targets of the organization through effective planning and budgeting

  • Devising strategies and techniques for achieving ambitious sales targets

  • Mapping potential clients and customers; developing lead target lists and generating new opportunities for the organization

  • Leading, managing, and planning the future objectives for goal-driven team members

  • Motivating sales reps to achieve their goals by demonstrating how to make it happen — no matter how aggressive, you can communicate the value of challenging goals and create universal buy-in

Travel

  • This position is expected to require minimal travel

Perks

  • A few benefits you’re sure to enjoy:

    • Health insurance

    • Unlimited PTO (yes, really!)

    • 401(k) with company match (aka, free money)

    • A relaxation room with a zero-gravity chair

    • If you are the right fit, but not in Atlanta already, don’t worry! We will pay to get you here! (relocation expenses covered!)

    • Catered lunches every day

    • Strong company culture with amazing rewards (the past two years we've hit our company goals and the entire team went to Disney World — two years in a row)

Past Experience Desired:

  • 3+ years of experience in sales management — training, developing, and leading at least a mid-sized sales team

  • At least 8 years experience in sales

  • Proven track record of managing substantial deals and significant accounts

  • Formal sales training preferred (i.e. Sandler)

Requirements

Our client’s requirements are pretty straightforward. To qualify you must:

  • Exhibit an infectious whatever-it-takes, solutions-focused attitude

  • Be able to embrace challenges and handle feedback calmly and effectively, even in high-stress situations

  • Be super-competitive, resilient, smart, and compassionate (be a great listener)

  • Have a fast-paced work ethic that allows you to meet tight deadlines

  • Maintain a data-driven approach to marketing and sales

  • Have a natural desire to take on new initiatives and stay on top of marketing trends (you’ll become an expert in 673 different things)

  • Take a team-centric approach (we're better together)

  • Be humble and consistent
