Alec Baldwin immortalized the salesman’s mantra in the film Glengarry Glen Ross when he said: “Always Be Closing.” That task is made simple when you’re selling a cool product like a night vision camera. On today’s Jobcast, Dan Cui, vice president of sales & marketing at SiOnyx, revealed the type of person he’s looking for to fill the company’s open role of sales representative & account manager.
Cui revealed that he’s currently recruiting a sales rep to cover the Florida, Michigan, and Massachusetts areas. The position requires a 40-hours, five days per week commitment, with 50%-75% travel time involved. The ideal candidate has a bachelor’s degree, three years of sales experience, and an entrepreneurial personality.
Located in Beverly, MA, SiOnyx is revolutionizing videography with the world’s first action camera with color night vision. Home to many startups, Massachusetts has long been a hotspot of pioneering technology and disruptions.
“Think of us as a Silicon Valley of the East,” Cui said.
For the current open role, he’s looking for someone who wants to start their own business.
“Our product generates that ‘wow’ factor!” Cui exclaimed. “We want someone whose personality can take that ‘wow’ factor and turn it into revenue growth for the company.”
While the camera practically sells itself, Dan is still hunting for someone with determination; he mentioned a story about a salesman friend of his who had trouble getting past the secretary at a front desk. After getting grandstanded, what did he do? Purchased a dozen Dunkin’ donuts and waited for the manager one morning, then offered him breakfast in exchange for a few minutes of his time. It worked!
“He started doing millions of dollars a year with that company,” Cui said.
