Business Development Representative


Chicago, IL Remote

Full time

Oct 27

Amper is a fast-growing IoT startup that helps manufacturers unleash their potential with modern software to run operations. We believe in keeping things simple and easy-to-understand - and our culture and products are a reflection of that. For example, it takes a few minutes to self-install Amper on any kind of industrial machine - like a consumer device and without the traditional hassle of integration. We hate the "alphabet-soup" of industry acronyms and instead aim to make modern tech tools understandable, approachable and usable day-to-day. We have a ton of irons in the fire and love folks who are creative and excited to roll up their sleeves and get stuff done. We are proud to have a data-driven culture that allows us to be focused, curious and calm. Amper has been featured in Forbes and TechCrunch and we work with a large, growing global customer base.

About You

Amper is looking for a rockstar Business Development Rep to join our team. This is a perfect role for someone with the passion, hustle, and desire to grow as a modern sales professional and be an early core team member at Amper. Successful BDRs earn accelerated commissions and move into closing roles in 6-12 months. We are looking to double our customer base this year, so there is a lot of greenfield to go after. We are building a fun and exciting customer journey that prioritizes value addition and customer happiness from the first email. In-line with the analytics Amper provides, we are seeking curious and data-driven sales professionals who seek to constantly learn and self-improve. There is a lot of money to be made in IoT sales for the right, motivated BDR!
