Account Executive, mid-market
✍🏽 About Writer
Great writing for everyone. That's our vision.
We're filling a big need for a writing assistant that's built ground-up for the needs of professional users and teams. Writing really is the last unstructured business process. Our roadmap is an exciting combination of deepening functionality for team leaders and extending functionality for end users — helping them be more effective and efficient in their writing.
🛣 Traction and backing
- Our customers include Twitter, Intuit, UiPath, Pinterest, and InVision. It's a great community of writers, content strategists, copyeditors, and editorial leaders. They are a true community and the content vanguard. We have a NRR of +130% and we're just getting started.
- Our funnel is large and growing fast (+1M visitors/month, thousands of weekly trial starts). This is important, as you'll have nearly instant feedback on the features you'll be building or the growth experiments you'll be running.
- We're backed by the best funds in the game and a world-class group of founders, operators, and angels. (Series A not yet announced 🤫 but we will share more when we meet.)
🎯 Why it's the perfect time to join
- We're 25 people. There's a lot of room to contribute and grow an enduring SaaS company. You will have unquestionably made it happen.
- We have strong PMF. We have strong DAUs and deep usage. People spend hours in Writer. The work you'll do will have a direct impact on some of the top companies in the world — as well as users who depend on us to sharpen their writing.
- Build it, nail it, scale it. We're at 'nail it.' If you like helping turn dirt paths into smooth roads, now is the perfect time to join. We've grown 5x and are running fast towards aggressive — and achievable — milestones.
📐 About this role
Every company grows differently, and we grow when we help our users write better, faster. We’re looking for a renaissance sales rep whose top priority is helping new potential customers succeed with Writer.
As our second mid-market sales rep, your objective will be to help convert mid-market prospects who are active in our trials or who request a sales demo from our website or within our product.
Your positivity, sense of curiosity, and ability to create champions from early adopters in the AI writing space will help shape our entire culture. If you have a builder mentality, this is the role for you.
You'll initially be reporting to the CEO/co-founder and be working very closely with our mid-market and web sales reps and head of operations.
🦸🏻♀️ Your responsibilities
- Develop a deep understanding of our users and why they are exploring Writer
- Become a trusted product specialist, educating users on how to set up Writer to unlock value, going hands-on where needed
- Become an expert in the wide range of use cases in which Writer can drive business transformation across different industries
- Qualify inbound leads and guide them through the evaluation process
- Guide prospects through team trials with clear criteria for success; pull in key stakeholders early and help the team reach Buy consensus
- Collect and share product insights that help product identify both scalable and unscalable ways to educate and activate the user base on the product
- Lead champions through their internal budgeting, legal, security, and procurement processes (this is an evangelical sale and many of our champions are buying 100+ licenses for the first time)
⭐️ Is this you?
- 3+ years in a B2B SaaS closing role focused on the mid-market (250-1,000 employees)
- Experience meeting and exceeding a direct quota
- Experience with value-based selling (but still know the product almost as well as CS 🤓)
- Experience working with legal, security, and/or procurement teams to win deals
- Strong written and verbal communication skills
- Strong Sales 101: even without a sales manager, you’re applying processes and frameworks to push deals forward
- Comfortable asking the tough questions, working cross-departmentally, and working under high pressure
- Record of building strong and lasting customer relationships
- Extremely organized and self-motivated; a detailed note-taker
- Knowledge of editorial processes a huge plus: if you edited your high school newspaper or majored in English Literature, can you pretty please apply?
We don’t spend frivolously, but we do take care of our own. Besides smart, sincere colleagues and a vibrant work environment, we are proud to offer:
- Employer-covered medical plans, dental, vision, and life insurance
- Competitive parental leave policy (parents actually work here!)
- Generous PTO
- Company stock options
- 401k plan with employer matching
- Flexible schedules
