About This Opportunity

This is a pre-sales role. Our Business Development Team is the first point of contact for many of our future customers. As a BDA you would be focused on setting up introductions with our ideal customers. This position reports to the Director of Business Development and will work closely with our Inside Sales Reps (ISRs) and Field Sales Reps (FSRs).

We're looking for people who are excited to own their "business" (within your respective territory). If you're keen on discovering the perfect buyer, crafting messaging that gets attention, and making connections between people, then this is the perfect role for you. Although it's not always the case, ideally this role will prepare you to become a full-cycle Salesperson (i.e. a closer).  

As a Business Development Associate, you’ll enjoy the benefits of ongoing training, mentorship, career/life coaching, and guidance. It is a great way to jumpstart a career in cybersecurity/SaaS sales and the skills you develop are applicable across any number of disciplines.

The Business Development Team Mission

The BDRs are the face of SecurityScorecard. As the first point of contact, we evangelize the brand driving new sales opportunities. We’re a group of growth-minded, self-motivated, and highly ambitious sales professionals. We work harder than others, hold ourselves accountable, and put the team first. Our philosophy is, “Next play!” Goal achieved? Next play. Failed miserably? Next play. We embrace coaching, we stay focused on our goals, and we strive to have a growth mindset. We think. We act. We win. Then we do it again.

Our Ideal Candidate - does this sound like you?

This role is focused on sourcing our next sales opportunity. As such, you will be speaking with a lot of people, over the phone, email, or social media (LinkedIn). Our ideal candidate has a knack for recognizing patterns and applying those ideas to broader scenarios. For example, uncovering ideal prospects to reach out to based on Buyer Persona training. When the ideal candidate talks with people (phone or email) they are drawn in and curious to learn more. If this sounds like your greatest nightmare, then this is probably not the role to grow your career. 

Some other things we look for in our ideal candidate:

  • Engages people effortlessly with oral and written communication
  • Shameless audacity - won't back down at the first sight of uninterested
  • Digitally organized (to maintain Salesforce records)
  • Effective researcher to find new prospects
  • Tech savvy and extremely comfortable navigating new software
  • Sees feedback, coaching, and improvement 
  • Hungry to learn (not complacent) 
  • Works with urgency (to achieve quota on time)
  • Positive, warm, and inviting attitude with a “no challenge is too great” mentality

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
