Business Development Representative
LET’S BUILD YOUR FINTECH CAREER TOGETHER
The FinTech industry has grown exponentially over the last couple of years. Buzzwords such as robotic process automation, machine learning, intelligent automation solutions, and artificial intelligence make it extremely difficult—regardless of the research you do—to identify which companies are truly at the forefront of technology.
At BlackLine, these buzzwords are a reality.
Founded in 2001 with headquarters in Los Angeles, California and offices throughout the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia, Asia, and South Africa, BlackLine serves some of the world’s fastest-growing companies and best-known brands.
Recognized by Gartner as a Leader in cloud financial close solutions, BlackLine continues to define the cloud market for non-consolidation financial close solutions, and for nine years running, has been named to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list which recognizes the fastest-growing technology companies in North America.
So, are YOU ready to work at a fast-paced, growing company?
Because at the core of our success is our Business Development team—and we want you to be a part of it.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU
As a member of the BlackLine Business Development team, you will be responsible for developing demand for BlackLine’s products and solutions. Likewise, we are committed to developing your talent and investing in your professional growth.
Are YOU looking for an inclusive and diverse work environment where your opinion is heard?
In your role as a business development representative (BDR), you will play an integral part in conveying the value of the BlackLine platform to prospective clients and, in doing so, you will have a direct impact on the future success of BlackLine.
To ensure your success at BlackLine, you’ll be immersed in an intensive 6-week training program, so you can hit the ground running and start qualifying leads in your territory. Training is focused on helping you establish successful processes as a BDR and providing a strong foundation for success in the larger sales organization. This is your opportunity to gain exposure to, and learn the nuance of, enterprise level software sales.
For your hard work, we offer base salary plus a very competitive uncapped monthly bonus structure, professional career growth, regular offsite team events, and free breakfast on Thursdays (because why not?!).
