Business Development Representative

Job Description

Are you looking to advance your sales career? Do you like to stay ahead of the curve and bring new innovations and technology to others?  Do you constantly look for ways to lead change and improve the situations around you?  Do you thrive on helping companies transform? This is your opportunity to take your career to the next level and become an unstoppable innovator. 

At TenFour we’re revolutionizing the IT industry by bringing to market an entirely new approach to the infrastructure technologies that power modern business. We challenge the status quo every day, building a better world for our customers and our employees, and we’re looking for a high energy Business Development Representative (BDR) to help us drive growth.  

The BDR uncovers new business opportunities by leveraging lead generation tools to research and contact potential customers.  The BDR operates as a liaison between the Marketing and Sales teams to develop new client relationships, especially at the CXO level, that ultimately result in the first sale to the customer.

In order to bring strong insights that benefit target accounts, the BDR researches and stays current on the developments of strategic opportunities, challenges, operational and technological developments, and organizational changes at target accounts. The BDR augments account lists by pre-qualifying customers that exhibit indicators of receptiveness to the value proposition of TenFour services. 

The BDR will utilize a number of lead generation and marketing automation tools to uncover, qualify, contact and track prospective customers.  The BDR uses communication skills to develop leads from marketing campaigns and cultivate strong relationships from first contact until opportunities are seamlessly passed to a Business Development Executive.  This role works closely with Marketing to develop and test messaging and tools used to reach prospects.

When you join TenFour you’ll be part of a uniquely collaborative organization comprised of highly intelligent and driven individuals who have a passion for building something new. You’ll have an opportunity to make a real impact on the organization and have fun while you’re doing it. We believe in challenging the status quote and doing things not just differently, but better. We’re a growth company looking for someone with new ideas and a passion to change the IT industry. Does that sound like you?
