Company: Encore Fire Protection
Location: Middletown
Posted on: January 2, 2022

Job Description:

We are looking for an Sprinkler Sales Executive to handle the estimates, proposals, and negotiations for sprinkler installations projects covering the state of Connecticut. Don't know anything about sprinklers systems? That's OK. Prior fire protection experience helps, but it is not a prerequisite for this position. More important than system specific knowledge is a willingness to learn, a commitment to working hard, and a compulsion to want to crush it! The people that do best in this position are often the people called out for being able to start a conversation with just about anyone but known to never take no for an answer. If this sounds like you, then there may be an opportunity for you at Encore Fire Protection. This person has to be a proven team-player that can equally work on your own. They have the confidence in details and small intricacies but the ability to also see the bigger picture. They are extremely organized and have notable time management skills to make them thrive in a fast-paced environment with tight deadlines. This is not your typical sales role. And you will be expected to spend time in the office working with internal resources to accurately quote, develop proposals, and communicate with customers (on the phone and over email), but the similarities end there. Here's what you can expect: * Meet customers, take measurements and provide accurate estimates on new sprinkler systems * Build estimates, quotes, and pre-engineering solutions for customers * Review construction contract documents and coordinate with general contractor/owner, and gather the required information for design scope and shop drawing preparation * Collaborate with internal project management, field construction, design team, and other members of the sales team That will account for about 70% of your time. The rest of the time you will be encouraged to get out of the office to meet customers face to face, build rapport, and survey life safety equipment so that you can effectively quote and sell contracts. Requirements You do not have to know anything about alarm or sprinkler systems to excel in this position. As long as you are ready and able to do the following you can be wildly successful in this role: * You must have some formal sales experience that extends beyond retail or hospitality. Experience selling a service (as opposed to a tangible product) is a plus. * We are prepared to teach you everything you need to know about alarm and sprinkler systems but you must be ready to commit to learning. This can be a hard pill to swallow for the naturally competitive person who is driven to want to produce out of the gates, we know that, and so we want to be upfront about it. * You must be good on the computer. To us, "good" means that are proficient with the Microsoft Suite (Outlook, Word, and excel) without question. In addition, we use Hubspot, Zendesk, Slack, and an industry specific program called ServiceTrade. Prior working experience with these programs is not a requirement, but you must be prepared to adopt and self-teach on each of these platforms. * You must be a people person! You have to build great relationships with your customers and be their advocate as well as a voice of reason. Benefits As a company, Encore is hyper-focused on developing a culture that thrives on success and is energized by the fact that we get to make peoples' lives better and safer each day. One of the ways we do this is by generously rewarding all those who contribute to our continued growth. But we also believe that not all rewards are monetary. Here are just a few perks that a successful individual in this role can expect: * Salary commensurate with experience with opportunity for a results-driven bonus based on personal output and effectiveness in role * Purpose and results driven work environment (work smarter not harder) * We dress for the objective which means most days we wear jeans but occasionally we wear suits. As long as you know which situations require which (or aren't afraid to ask), you'll be all set! * Speaking of attire, we offer all employees Encore gear twice a year * Snacks and coffee everyday and weekly "to-order" office lunches and breakfast * Freedom to express ideas - a culture of willingness to test, try, modify, adopt, enhance, improve and CHANGE as needed * Access to leading edge web-based productivity tools * Participation in Fidelity 401(K) that includes employer match * Medical, Dental, and Vision benefits through Blue Cross * Company-paid life insurance policy of $25,000 Encore Fire Protection is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
