GetThru is hiring a Sales Development Representative (SDR) to assist our Sales team in new market segment lead generation, outbound campaigns, and qualification. As a part of the Sales, Success, and Marketing team, you will be working closely with your team members who are managing our company’s work in outbound sales to new market segments.
You'll manage processes around lead generation and comprehensive outbound campaigns to key prospects, including via email, social media, text, and calls. As you grow in the role, you'll perform qualification calls and eventually, perform product demos and manage a sales pipeline
This is a full-time, salaried, exempt position and reports to one of our Senior Sales Managers.
GetThru’s mission is to empower organizations to connect authentically with their audiences at scale while building a sustainable company committed to progressive social change. Our tools have been used by more than 2,000 organizations to send over 1 billion text messages and make more than 500 million phone calls for voter contact, volunteer recruitment, fundraising, polling, and more. In the 2020 election cycle we helped propel several of the highest-profile Democratic campaigns in the nation to victory, along with plenty of progressive state and local candidates.
We are an all-remote company with 40+ full time staff spread across the US and Canada. Prior to the pandemic, we had a once-yearly all staff retreat, and held semi-annual in-person team meetings (e.g., sales, support, development). And while our roots are in progressive politics, we love partnering with organizations of all kinds that share our passion for creating a better world.
