COVID 19 UPDATE: We are doing our part to flatten the curve so for the time being all interviews will be conducted virtually. As a company ALL employees are currently working remotely.
At Volusion, we accelerate success. Our teams are dedicated to providing fast, flexible and reliable Ecommerce solutions for Pro Sellers ($500k+ GMV).

Our company was founded in 1999 and our cutting edge Ecommerce platform has helped merchants generate billions of dollars in sales. For the last three years, we’ve been building an entirely new platform that will help our customers provide a faster, more efficient and beautiful shopping experience than any other Ecommerce provider. We’re ready to share this with the world.

If you're the kind of entrepreneur that loves working in teams, has a passion for driving positive change, and wants to change the world with your ideas, we want to hear from you.

The rundown:

As an SMB Account Executive, y​ou will drive new business by acquiring new Pro Sellers & notable logos to use the Volusion platform. We’re looking for someone who has a successful track record of surpassing quota. The ideal candidate is a creative & reliable go getter who will follow a consultative sales process to identify & understand the needs of the business and present solutions that accelerate success. This new role will need to be a “quarterback” - a polished sales professional that understands how to communicate & collaborate cross-functionally to increase adoption of the Volusion software. 

You will:

  • Strategically propose solutions through the Volusion Way that meet client's needs through active discovery
  • Prepare & deliver professional and compelling sales presentations via phone, video web conference, and in person
  • Position value proposition of fastest sites, best SEO, and best mobile experience to increase conversions for our prospects & customers.
  • Effectively manage your pipeline daily to strategically move prospects through the sales funnel to closure and transition to on-boarding/implementation
  • Be resourceful in your communication methods. We are not limited to only phone calls, and emails. We stand out by using video, and in some cases text messaging.
  • Adapt quickly to change and be a student by actively researching trends in the ecommerce market
  • Be a relationship builder with your peers and your customers, and challenge the status quo by innovating & developing new ways to sell and disrupt SMB software sales
  • Proactively maintain knowledge of all Volusion plans, services, and partners
  • Be a challenger and educate your prospects on how to be successful with Volusion 
  • Maintain clear and up to date information on prospects & customers within Salesforce.

 We are looking for someone with:

  • 4+ years of experience in a full-cycle, quota carrying, software or technology sales role 
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills - you can clearly explain complex concepts to my grandparents
  • Understanding of HTML, CSS and Ecommerce technologies (Shopping carts, Web hosting, Creative Design, Digital Marketing) a big plus.
  • Salesforce experience (or similar CRM experience)
  • Documented track record of exceeding objectives in a performance-driven environment
  • Experience with SPIN Selling and/or a Needs Based Selling Process
  • Proactive and self-directed
  • Strong interpersonal and influencing skills
  • Ability to work cross functionally with Customer Experience, Account Management, and Product Management teams
  • A passion for talking to people, understanding their unique business needs, and positioning the Volusion proposition with more excitement & conviction each time its positioned

An Insider's view of Volusion

What are some social events your company does?

Part of our Culture Code is to "put people before everything else", with this we listen to quirky ideas that employees come up with- like having a watermelon throwing contest and a snack wagon. Yes, a snack wagon- once a month we bring an old school radio flyer wagon full of snacks around to every desk. It's so simple yet brings so much joy.


Sr. People & Culture Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

Once I get settled, I head over to the kitchen to pour myself a cup of cold brew. I grab fruit and something salty from our snack bins. I then meet with the teams I am apart of to give updates on my work. The rest of my day is spent prioritizing & completing ad-hoc requests, developing data pipelines, and chipping away at longer-term data projects.


Data Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

My leaders take the time to understand my career goals. They support me by teaching me not only career lessons but life lessons too! Through company wide projects, Volusion gives me the opportunity to gain skills outside of my department. This helps me to be a well rounded sales pro and to better understand the industry and product that I sell!


Partner Account Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I encourage my team to just try it! Whether "it" is a new tool or program, a way to customize the website experience or connect with entrepreneurs. We always want to be testing and moving forward with our brand and our approach to creative problem solving.


Visual Design Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
