Talent Development Representative (Full-Time)

Talent Development Representative

Verticalmove, Inc. - Bothell, Washington

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.” -Steve Jobs

We look for those who cannot be ignored. In the world of sales those who cannot be ignored succeed where all others do not and that's what we do here: succeed where others do not. We specialize in providing a service that combats one of the largest hurdles for companies, both large and small, across the country: talent engagement and management. As Headhunters who hyper-focus on the technology we are in the absolute thick of that challenge and have earned a reputation both in Silicon Valley and Seattle as being a tenacious partner both for enterprise and startups in need of high level candidates. Before we dive into what we are looking for let's first look at a very important question: what do you get out of this? Aside from an uncapped commission structure, clear cut career advancement, and a highly immersive 6 month training program?

Seattle is the tech capital of the country and there are really only three ways into it: be an engineer, sell the products those engineers make, or build the teams that build the products. We are very excitedly in that last group which is part of growing $8 billion a year industry. We are not the team that is hired to handle the 'low hanging fruit', we go after the high profile candidates. We find the diamonds in the rough and pull the leaders in the field from the competition. This is not just any sales job, this is a career in high level solution based sales with some of the most impactful organizations in the industry such as Salesforce, Teradata, and Uber. So what do you get out of this? You get the opportunity for a very lucrative future in a highly competitive and quickly growing industry, with targeted training and mentoring with one of those most in demand skill sets out there.
