SMB Account Executive (Fundera)
Fundera, at NerdWallet, is the go-to financial resource for small businesses. We’re here to help entrepreneurs achieve their financial goals and grow businesses as big as their aspirations.
As a catalyst for smart financial decisions, our combination of proprietary technology and financial expertise provides business owners with tailored solutions based on their unique needs and eligibility—helping them prosper, create more jobs, and, ultimately, grow the economy.
Our SMB Account Executive will be essential in providing the highest level of service to our small business customers, to understand their financial needs and lender partners to manage a process towards funding. If you’re interested in the position, here are a few things you’ll get to do and the qualifications that will make you successful in this role.
If you were here 6 months ago, here are some things you might have worked on:
- Leading floor wide "standups" to kick off sales days.
- Testing and iterating with our new customer journeys through updated product changes.
- Participating in group trainings to help bolster your sales acumen.
- Helping shape the layout of our user application.
- Working with marketing to rewrite our email cadences.
- Raising feedback to senior leadership on suboptimal areas in our sales process while also raising feedback on general day to day operations.
Where you can make an impact:
- Manage the entire sales process from handling initial outreach to closing the deal.
- Dive right into training and quickly learn the Fundera sales process, including our entire product suite and basic qualifying material.
- Jump on the phones and become a Fundera expert who can confidently speak about our products and help business owners find the best loan options for their business.
- Work alongside the lenders in our Fundera network to identify the best opportunities for them and serve as liaison between lender and small business owner.
- Achieve, and consistently exceed, your monthly sales goals.
We recognize not everyone will meet all of the criteria. If you meet most of the criteria below and you’re excited about the opportunity and willing to learn, we’d love to hear from you.
- 2-3 years of direct sales experience.
- Proven ability to effectively manage a pipeline with consistent performance against various KPI’s/sales metrics.
- Possess outstanding communication skills.
- Have the ability to multi-task, prioritize, and autonomously manage your time.
- Are comfortable and resilient in conversations with business owners from all walks of life.
- Are excited by and thrive in a fast-paced inside sales environment.
- Think on your feet when faced with new challenges, tough conversations, or difficult questions.
- Always raise your personal bar. You can take feedback like a champ and implement it immediately.
- This role will be based in Phoenix, Arizona.
- We have found that working in-person, alongside peers and more senior members of the team, confers great advantages owing to the spontaneous learning and collaboration opportunities that arise daily on a sales floor and that cannot be easily replicated in a remote environment.
- We also know that people want the flexibility to work remotely, both for personal and professional reasons, so while this is an in-office role, as long as you are performing at our minimum standards you’ll have the flexibility to work remotely 20% of the month anywhere in the continental US starting in your second month.
