  • A work ethic that demonstrates dedication and commitment to Bold’s mission and belief in our BUILDERS Code​​
  • 15+ years experience of B2B enterprise software sales with a proven track record of closing business

An Insider's view of Bold Commerce

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Even with Builders all across North America, and doing a mix of in-person and remote work, Bold keeps us engaged with the fantastic culture the company was founded on. I feel very connected to people who are thousands of miles away. Everyone is so excited to collaborate, innovate, and help their coworkers out in any way they can.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

It’s important to create a space where it is okay to take risks. I encourage my team to try new things and experiment (while still leaving room for a backup plan if we need it!). I see this across the entire team at Bold as we are all pushed to embrace innovation and creativity.
