You’re the kind of salesperson who loves to sell and loves to solve problems. There will be times that YOU are the reason that an oil refinery starts back up on time, or that rolling blackouts are narrowly avoided in Phoenix or Los Angeles. You will be a hero to your customers, you will help keep American industry running. That’s not always comfortable, you’ll find yourself supervising installers while in full coveralls and a respirator when it’s 120 degrees. There will be times the water in your shower will run black with coal dust from your hair when you jump in at 1:00am at a hotel in the middle of nowhere. You’re not going to do this because it’s easy, you don’t do easy things anyway. You’re going to do this because you want work that means something, that’s needed, that you can see the result of, and that gets you up in the morning, excited to conquer another day.
Sure, you’ll have a flexible schedule, unlimited vacation, work from home, get to wine-and-dine people and smoke the occasional $120 cigar, but you’re not going to take this job because of that. Those are just perks. You’re going to take it because you give a damn, and want to work on a team that shares your desire for meaningful work.
We sell to heavy industrial customers who demand high-reliability, are usually in a hurry, and who want to do things right the first time. We sell Peace of Mind. We don’t chase competitive bids, we avoid long cycle sales, and we close our average deal within just 22 days, usually as the sole-source vendor. We are consummate sales professionals who put our steel-toed boots on, jump in the truck, and get in front of our customers in order to understand and solve their issues in person, regardless of what COVID policies might look like that week. We don’t show up to shake hands or drop off flyers, we deliver value every time our customers see us; whether that means performing inspections, offering technical presentations, or just poring over drawings and troubleshooting around the conference table.
What your work week will look like:
You’ve already got a nice home office setup, when you’re there you’ll meet daily with our all-remote team for a quick 15-minute morning huddle, other times it will be from your truck, but you’ll get to voice your priorities for the day and make sure your engineering and sales support teams are backing you up while you’re out in the field, or on the phone with customers. You’ll fill your schedule each week with meeting key decision makers at major industrial facilities (cement plants, oil refineries, power plants, chemical plants, large food & beverage installations, etc – anything with high heat, corrosion, or pressure). You’ll get in front of them, walk the plants, find and indicate potential problems to the customer, and turn those problems into opportunities to quote. The better you get with a tape measure & sketchpad, the more money you’ll make. When you find opportunities, you’ll bring all the data to our engineering team, and they’ll engineer and price out a solution for you to offer to the customer. You don’t have to do your own quotes, your time is better used selling.
