We're Hiring! Sales & Design - Edmonton - $70,000 - $150,000

We are looking for a qualified individual to join our sales and design team in. Our unique range of jobs includes installations in performing arts venues (sound, video, lighting), churches, restaurants and hospitality and corporate boardrooms




Sapphire Sound is a young team of professionals in the pro audio visual design and integration field. We're bringing life and agility back to an industry that has become cookie cutter and inflexible. Our customers include performing arts venues (sound, video, lighting), churches, restaurants and hospitality and corporate boardrooms. Our unique design approach to meet customers needs and budgets has our team very busy and we're looking to add another member!


Sapphire Sound is looking for exceptional individuals who share our core values: trustworthy, skilled, responsive, passionate, all in, and fun. We believe that these values are the drivers of our success, and we're committed to building a talented group of professionals who embody these values.


Our team is the driving force behind our success, and we're committed to building a positive team dynamic that encourages collaboration, growth, and success. We're looking for team players who are dedicated to delivering exceptional results for our clients and team.


Job Summary


The job is highly commission based and requires a driven individual who is ready to dig in and fight to win jobs. You will be primarily working in an office setting but will regularly need to attend site visits and be on the lookout for new customers and opportunities. The position is very flexible, so working from home and remotely is a possibility, but regular time in the office will be required as well to enhance team culture and connections.


We don't subscribe to the normal 9-5 suits and ties sales model. We are down to earth, honest, caring professionals who genuinely desire to provide the right solution to our customers. Our sales people are also our designers, so strong technical knowledge is required in addition to interpersonal skills in order to be successful.



Responsibilities


The successful candidate will be responsible for finding new business, developing a relationship, determining customer needs, designing a solution, and overseeing the implementation and handover process. Our management team is ready to help in the sales and design side, and our install team will handle the physical work, but in general our sales people stay very connected to projects even after the "sales" portion of the project is secured.
