Job Description

We’re hiring our first full-stack, go-to-market leader: someone who knows early-stage SaaS B2B sales like the back of their hand and will take charge of the full funnel to deliver results and create the outbound playbook. 
The ideal candidate is entrepreneurial and has operated and excelled in an early stage B2B startup, specifically in the formative phases prior to achieving $1M-5M ARR. 
We believe that there are many paths that could lead to this role: former founder, early sales at a tech company, launching your own small business, or you have done early go-to-market experimentation and execution at successful, high-growth companies.

Expected Results

    • Refine ICP and build segment specific outbound strategies
    • Test and identify the most effective messaging and product positioning 
    • Execute the full sales cycle: outbound prospecting, demos, account management 
    • Create customer success workflows to retain customers and grow wallet share
    • Build a strong customer feedback loop to ensure our product evolves to meet customer needs 
    • Close at least 5 mid-market customers per month by your second month at Portex
    • Define how we can scale growth 20% per month and playbook repeatable processes 

Professional Requirements

    • Previous experience working in a pre-Series A B2B venture, whether that be an early-stage company or your own business
    • Full stack sales experience: from outbound prospecting and lead generation all the way through to demos and closing deals
    • Proven track record of exceeding metrics within high-uncertainty / low-structure environments
    • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, while consistently assessing what to prioritize and deprioritize 
    • Self-starter who’s intrinsically motivated and does well with ambiguity
    • Experience with Salesforce and Outreach (or equivalent); excited to experiment with new Sales tools 
    • Experience in supply chain/logistics (bonus but not a requirement)
