What We're Looking For:
The right person for the job will have a few years experience in sales.

SeeClickFix's hierarchy is flat and everyone in the office is part of the decision making process. Sales Associates are involved in conversations about features and have a say in matters related to the platform.
Most importantly we want you be really really ridiculously smart and fun.
