required that the candidate resides in the Eastern Region of the
United States. *
Yelp was created to connect people with great local businesses. As
an Inside Sales Representative (ISR), you'll be working directly
with these local businesses to help them achieve their goals
through Yelp's various advertising programs. You'll work with small
business owners via phone to determine their needs and aspirations
and customize every sale to help make those happen. We succeed when
we help our clients grow their businesses.
Because people are at the center of everything we do, one of your
main priorities is to educate business owners about the value of
Yelp's advertising platform. In this role, you will be directly
responsible for selling advertising space on Yelp to local
businesses across the US and Canada. Success in this role is
measured by hitting and exceeding monthly sales goals, consistently
staying ahead of daily metrics, and handling rejection in stride.
You'll experience all of this in a supportive virtual team
environment with the added flexibility of a remote workspace.
