Sales

Location: New York City, NY

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Overview

We are looking for someone who is quick thinking, has a relentlessly positive outlook and is willing to push down walls to go after goals. This opportunity includes hot referrals and cold visits to new potential business. We have an established service business, and product sales are a wide open territory with significant potential to grow from our existing industry relationships and reputation. If you are one of those people who has a knack for introducing people to new products, driving sales and making customers happy, keep reading! We are looking for someone who is excited to learn a new industry, and get into a company that is ever-evolving and growing.

If the above sounds like you/interesting, and you have a minimum of 3 years sales experience (in any industry), you’re on our short list already.

What you will be doing

Join our sales team to continue building and expanding our current territory for outside sales of lighting controls (think Smart Buildings). That’s a big, bold task, and doing it well requires drive and clear thinking. Many can be taught to sell, but few have the confidence, professionalism, and tenacity to grow every month. Our salespeople do. They speak with clarity and confidence, take responsibility for their work, ask questions to find customer needs, and most importantly allow the client to focus on their priorities while we focus on ours.

You’ll be working from home a couple days a week and within a 150 mile territory to visit clients on other days. Entertaining clients on a regular basis is encouraged and hosting trainings or classes can be done at our company training facility in Elkton, MD. You’ll have side-by-side guidance for a couple weeks and be given manufacturer training to make you confident with the products. Once you’re fine-tuned to the process, you’ll begin creating and following leads and maintaining long-standing customer relationships.

About us

ProAutomated provides professional engineering services for lighting control equipment, but there is more to us than that.

What is it like working for ProAutomated?

ProAutomated employees describe the company in 4 phrases:

“People” – Everybody that works at ProA enjoys and cares about the people they work with. When people leave ProAutomated, they always rate the “People” at ProAutomated as the best part of their job.

“Leading our Industry” – ProAutomated has always sought to be the best at what we do, and that means we’re regularly evolving.

“Growing Together” – ProAutomated started as 1 person doing field service, and to develop managers, leaders, coordinators, everybody at ProA has had the opportunity to grow into new roles/responsibilities.

“Adventure” – Field Service by nature involves responding to customers when/where they need. As a result, the last minute flight to Alaska or the drive to Boston can be unexpected adventures. They don’t happen every day, but everybody experiences some adventures during their time with us.

Overall, we care about each other, and one of our main company goals is to improve our employees’ quality of life.

We lay claim to being the best at what we do. We hire the best, demand their best, and give them our best. We’ve completed over 10,000 lighting control projects in 3,500 locations, spread out across 7 countries since we started in 2007, and business is growing. We’re expanding our reach and team monthly, and we’re more excited than ever about the future of lighting. And since you’ve made it this far, we’re looking forward to learning more about you.
