Sales Representative / Account Manager
Reed Art & Imaging – Denver, CO

What do people say about you? Do they call you upbeat? Personable? Charismatic? Maybe even charming? How about fearless? Confident? Tenacious? If what they say about you is true, then you’re probably just who we need. And, if you can check the “yes” boxes for positive attitude, strong work ethic, witty conversationalist, and persuasive communicator, then that might just seal the deal.

We have a fulltime opening on our sales team for that rare person who embodies positivity, confidence, and tenacity, and who flourishes under the challenge of changing demands and priorities. We know our expectations are high, but it’s because that’s exactly who we want representing our company to potential artist clients! If your adrenaline is pumping right now, that might be you. So, here’s the final gut-check: Do you jump at the opportunity to meet and talk with new people? Are you a “hound dog” when it comes to a hunt? Do you intuitively know how to communicate with professionals? If that’s you, we invite you to apply to be our next Sales Representative/Account Manager.

Partial list of what you’ll be doing:

  • You’ll have to learn everything about what we create here (don’t worry, we’ll teach you)
  • Prospect, hunt, dig deep and seek out artists, galleries, and other qualified leads
  • Research potential clients through social networking channels
  • Close and convert potential leads into clients
  • Use our CRM to manage client relationships, data, and communications
  • Maintain an active schedule of face-to-face appointments
  • Travel to client sites when necessary, attend networking events, and give plant tours
  • Multitask like a pro (otherwise known as simultaneously manage multiple projects with tight time frames)
  • Develop a loyal following of fine art clients who think you’re awesome because of your extreme competence in handling their projects

The must-haves:

  • Exceptional, intuitive people skills with 2+ years of sales experience
  • Fearlessness in prospecting for business.
  • Experience in fine art reproduction, photography, digital printing, and graphic arts, or a degree in a related field would be great, but we’ll talk if your experience is strong
  • Ability to clearly communicate with creative professionals, both verbally and in writing
  • Detail-oriented and focused
  • Can responsively self-manage, multi-task, and stay motivated with limited supervision
  • Comfort with everyday usage of desktop computer and a variety of software
  • Steady, consistent work history
  • Reliable transportation
