Barn2Door provides Software and Services for Farmers to increase sales, access more customers and save time. With Barn2Door Farmers can promote their brand to sell online (ecommerce) and in-person (POS), while streamlining their business operations.

We are looking for people passionate about the intersection of local Food, Farming and Technology. Serving 1000’s of Farmers across all 50 states, our goal is to make it easy to buy local Food directly from local Farms. At Barn2Door, you’ll get to learn what it takes to build a startup business and participate in ongoing training and education, while also playing a critical role in our fast-paced growth.

We have amazing offices, a vibrant office culture and an environment that promotes collaboration and professional growth. Barn2Door is building a team eager to improve access to local Food from local Farmers, while promoting good stewardship of our land and resources. Want to work hard, have fun and make a difference? Join us.

Overview

In this role as an Account Executive, you'll be speaking with Farmers everyday. We have a strong inbound marketing engine that is driving demand for Barn2Door’s solutions, and benefiting from a transition in the market (as Farmers move online). In this role you will be on the phone or in video-based meetings to qualify and close new deals.

We only work with Farmers who employ sustainable practice, so you'll be responsible for qualifying and closing new Farmers that are best suited for Barn2Door’s solutions. You’ll be accountable for acquiring Farms in designated territories by connecting with prospects, delivering product demonstrations, resolving objections and closing new accounts.

You should be a “hunter”, innately competitive, comfortable and articulate as a presenter, accountable to ongoing metrics for Sales outcomes, and eager to become fluent in the local food and agriculture scene. With your pulse on the market, you’ll be expected to provide feedback internally to the Marketing, Success and Product teams (about opportunities and challenges).

You Are:

  • Focused. Driven. Resourceful. Organized.
  • A highly motivated self-starter (this isn’t a theory, it’s a must)
  • Tech-savvy - have used online tools / solutions to manage your productivity (and you can type!)
  • Process oriented - able to follow and track protocol, a superstar at following up
  • You love learning technology; you handle details accurately and in a timely manner
  • Your communication skills are top-notch, both over the phone and in email
  • Comfortable working in an entrepreneurial environment

  • Clearly articulate Barn2Door's value proposition and return on investment

Training:

We are big advocates of training and ongoing professional growth. In this position, an Account Executive will require ongoing training and domain knowledge to effectively communicate the nuances of our solution and to navigate questions and closing.

  • Give you a deep understanding of the Barn2Door solution
  • Answer questions regarding core product features and functions
  • Engage in authentic and meaningful conversations with prospects
  • Highlight the differentiation of our solution in contrast to the competition
  • Showcase your work habits, attention to detail, attitude and initiative

  • Incentive Stock Options (ISOs) purchase stock in a high-growth startup
  • 10 days PTO, 5 days Sick Leave and 11 Paid Holidays (5 weeks paid time off)
