Sales Development Representative
Introduction to Demandbase:
Demandbase is the Smarter GTM™ company for B2B brands. We help B2B companies hit their revenue goals using fewer resources. How? By aligning their sales and marketing teams around a combination of their data, our data, and artificial intelligence — what we call Account Intelligence — so they can identify, engage, and focus their time and money on the accounts most likely to buy.
About the Role:
The Sales Development Representative is an individual contributor role reporting to a Manager of Sales Development. You will play a critical role in expanding our presence in the market and converting prospects into Demandbase Sales opportunities. Account-Based Marketing is one of the fastest-growing and hottest sectors in digital marketing and you will play a key part in expanding the Demandbase presence as the pioneer and leader in this space.
You'll work closely with the direct sales team to ensure a seamless transition of opportunities. SDR's are measured by opportunity generation and will be given the flexibility to create a book of business of your own. We encourage account development through outbound prospecting, social selling, networking, attending trade shows and field marketing events, and any sales activity that would contribute to expanding the Demandbase brand. In summary, you will be the first line of engagement with future customers and will have an impact on the success of Demandbase as an organization.
The base compensation range for this role is: $49,500 - $70,000 which does not include bonus/variable pay.
We are moving to a hub-based hiring model, and will only be hiring new SDRs in the SF Bay Area, Austin, or the NYC metro, with the expectation that SDRs will be hybrid/onsite starting in 2024. This position will be fully remote for at least the next six months.

- The ability to tell a vivid story consistently
- Growth Mindset & extreme curiosity in everything that you do
- Strong organizational and time management skills
- Adaptability to any situation and incredible listening skills focused on processing what you hear and responding thoughtfully vs. hearing what is said but being focused on what you are going to say next
- Bonuses: Experience with Salesforce, Outreach, Gong, LinkedIn & LinkedIn Sales Navigator, and/or Lavender
What you’ll be doing:
- Manage a high volume of daily outbound emails and calls to prospects & accounts
- Create personalized emails to engage prospects & accounts
