Have 8+ years experience supporting sales, and have strong opinions about sales reports & dashboards
Love measuring funnels, opportunities, sales cycles, and all things revenue
Enjoy working with sales, success, and marketing teams to craft and automate processes

Are extremely analytical, and can understand and communicate technical concepts (e.g. data models, how software works, etc.)
 Have experience managing a remote team.
 Consistently find yourself as the most organized person on your team :)

What you'll do:

Create a beautiful process and pipeline for data, including transit data collection, refinement, and quality. This process doesn’t exist yet, and you’ll be building it from the ground up
Manage multiple stakeholders and requests simultaneously, and delegate work across different teams
 Define requirements for tools needed to support this process, and work with internal teams to build them
 Ensure Remix customers’ transit networks (existing and proposed) are represented accurately within our platform. Develop tactics to continuously evaluate and improve this data on an ongoing basis
Track and measure your processes to understand if they are working

You should have experience in understanding a 2–4 month sales process that spans multiple people and departments with a proven track record consistently being over-quota.  It is important to note that customer success is crucial for our success.  Identifying what success means to the customer in the pre-sales process and driving towards attaining that once they have signed is our #1 priority.  

You’d be a good fit if you:

 Care about cities and the way they are planned and built
 Are low-ego, empathetic, adaptable, and incredibly ambitious
