Make an impact by embarking in the world of sales!

Our business development team is the first point of contact with potential clients. It’s a highly collaborative effort focused on engaging executives in our target market to meet, differentiate, qualify, and move through the sales cycle. You will work closely with the team to update lead lists, support account research, site assessments, and more!

We are seeking autonomous, detail oriented, and ambitious business students who want to develop and strengthen their understanding of a B2B SaaS sales cycle. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to sharpen your skills whilst immersed into a collaborative, complex, and high-tech environment. If you’re an excellent communicator, aiming to make a real impact, this is the role for you! 

What your typical day would look like:  

  • You start your day off with a team meeting to track the progress of the different leads and elevate each other by sharing innovative ideas. 
  • After the call, you work on site assessments for your team members to help them better understand areas of opportunity for Coveo. 
  • You spend the rest of your morning researching for an upcoming demo. You are helping to make sure the team has the most up-to-date information about the prospect. Our strategy to gain prospective clients at Coveo is a proactive one!
  • After lunch, you’re tasked to gather some feedback and findings from a recent event our marketing team hosted. You enable the sales on the outcomes and prospects from the event.
  • In the afternoon, you listen in on some calls, helping you better understand the strategy and get inspired on where you can elevate the process. 
  • The day is already ending! Before closing your laptop, you take time to update Apollo to keep the prospect information up to date, you are solely responsible for this process.

Here is what will qualify you for the role:

  • You are in your third or fourth year studying in a Business related program. 
  • You are passionate about people and systems but also empowering and supporting them; you always seek to improve processes. 
  • You thrive in a dynamic work environment that is highly collaborative. 
  • You are intrigued by understanding and explaining complex concepts to others.
  • You have a strong desire to pursue a career in sales.

Here’s what will make you stand out:

  • You’ve participated in case competitions; you excel at public speaking!
  • You shine through with your organization and prioritization skills. 
  • You take charge of your tasks and have ownership in your role.

Interested? You don’t need to check every single box; passion goes a long way and we appreciate that skills are transferable.
