SaaS Inside Sales Associate at Authentise, remote working opportunity
Additive manufacturing MES developer Authentise is hiring a SaaS Inside Sales Associate in a remote working capacity. Established in 2012 in Mountain View, California, the company has developed a modular MES platform made specifically to manage the additive manufacturing workflow. The commission-based position will involve acting as an accounts executive and helping companies to further digitize their additive operations.
Applicants don’t necessarily need to have experience within additive manufacturing, as the role will be hands-on as part of a lean start-up team. Constantly striving to grow and being able to push clients to think in new ways, are considered to be more important attributes for applicants than 3D printing knowledge.
Most of the team are based in Philadelphia so living locally would be an advantage, and the position is likely to begin as part-time and move into full-time depending on performance. The salary for the position is advertised as $20-30,000 per annum plus commission. The full job description is available here – SaaS Inside Sales Associate.
