Business Development Representative at Vertafore
Make an impact and love what you do!
Vertafore is a top provider of software for the insurance industry. We create award-winning solutions to boost productivity, lower costs, and help agents, carriers, and governments carriers grow business and remain compliant with regulatory requirements. We respect and value our team, and we look to bring the best talent together to make our future in Denver even stronger.
We are seeking highly motivated Business Development Representatives (BDR) interested in kick starting their career in sales. BDR's are the first point of contact for the sales team – an important first impression. You will be tasked both with speaking to accounts we have reason to believe are interested in our services and reaching out to agencies that do not know of us to pique their interest in our software solutions.
The primary responsibility of the position is to drive bookings and recurring revenue growth by generating, qualifying, and developing sales pipeline. The BDR is a vital link between Marketing and Sales, and the BDR must be able to plan and execute daily and weekly, required activities to generate sales opportunities for Vertafore. This role has knowledge of the organization's products/services, and can partner with Marketing to execute campaigns, programs, and closed-loop business & sales development activities. The BDR also works closely with Operations & Sales Management.
During your discussions you will gather information surrounding agency challenges such that you can narrow in on the correct software match. Additionally, you will work to discover the key players in the buying process as well as when and how they need our assistance. BDR generated leads are routed to all segments and territories to be followed up on and closed by the proper sales representative. The idea of the role is to learn the company and our software inside and out with an ultimate goal of being promoted internally.
Vertafore is about bringing together top talent to make an immediate impact in software. Our culture encourages employees who are able to create, think and challenge each other in a fast-paced environment.
We are transforming our products and services, exploiting advanced techniques to create new "ways and means" for the insurance industry, and with that the industry is changing too.
