Client Solution Director (aka Sales Ninja)

Your inspiration:
Are you looking for a place where you can be part of something exciting, something with real potential, and something you can contribute to? Do you crave the opportunity to show what you’re really capable of? Would it be refreshing to have teammates who also value integrity, going that extra mile, and striving to make a difference? Do you feel this is getting superlative? If you answered yes to all these questions, perhaps we’ve finally found each other!

We are looking for a truly exceptional individual to run point for our outside sales. You’ll be responsible for finding and developing a consistent pipeline of opportunities that will knock our monthly sales goals out of the park and handsomely line your pockets. In bringing those opportunities home you’ll be working closely with our engineering team to figure out client needs, educate clients who are often unaware of the challenges they face, and provide solutions as a trusted advisor who earns client loyalty.

About the company and team you’re joining:
SMH Colocation is an infrastructure solution provider; we’re the backbone of the internet. Every time you snap an Instagram, share your pins on Pinterest, or search Google, bits of data are flying across the internet through data centers that host thousands of computers. We run the best and largest such data center in Orange County with over 110,000 sq. ft., where companies host their computers and rely on us to guarantee that their equipment remains secure and online, even if an asteroid strikes. Not to mention our connections to the internet are smokin’ fast.

This is an exciting time to join the team as as we’re growing rapidly. In fact, we’re expanding our services and are now in the midst of creating a brand spanking new brand (that was intentional) to showcase our evolution! As our company and team grows, we're looking for people with the capacity and interest in growing with us.

We’re headquartered in Anaheim, CA, just minutes from Downtown Anaheim, Downtown Fullerton, and Downtown Disney. There are a whole lot of downtown happenings near here! Our office is a lively environment with a tight-knit team that’s driven and motivated. Ambition is nurtured and rewarded as we’re all passionate about our growth. Above all we’re friends who appreciate and inspire each other as well as our clients.

You’ll work under the direction of our CEO, a creative yet analytical guy on a mission to make a difference with more ideas than he can possibly accomplish on his own. Fortunately he relies on his team to help refine those ideas and make them all happen. Well, at least the good ideas; he’s open to constructive criticism and enjoys a spirited debate. He’s also the hardest working guy in the office and meticulous, setting a high bar, but he’ll do everything he can to help you soar over it.

The challenge:

  • Lead Generation and Pipeline Management – Responsible for creatively developing leads, qualifying opportunities, and documenting the opportunity/sales process in our CRM system to manage your pipeline.
  • Solution Development – Responsible for identifying client needs and vulnerabilities, educating clients who are venturing into uncharted territory, and working with our engineering team to develop solutions to any challenge.
  • Proposal / RFP Preparation – Responsible for managing the RFP process and preparing the final response. Our engineering team will assist with technical details, but you’ll be responsible for pre-bid meetings, phone conferences, sourcing partners for out of scope requirements, etc.
  • Bringing Home the Bacon – Responsible for touring clients through our facility and closing the deal!
  • Post Sales Activities – Responsible for coordination between clients and our engineering team to facilitate move-in, and participation in a post-move review to compare expectations to the delivered results.
  • Event Participation – Responsible for participating in the planning and execution of various marketing activities.  Roles may include actively driving event attendance, giving presentations, and general networking activities.

Qualifications we feel are important:

  • 3-5 years experience in sales, focused on solution or strategic selling.
  • Advanced knowledge and understanding of technology.
  • Strong listening skills, with a keen ability to understand client needs and equate them to our solutions.
  • Ability to clearly articulate key points and compel action through written and verbal communication.
  • Exceptional organizational skills and the ability to follow through, keeping your eye on the ball.
  • Strong knowledge of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, to craft compelling business cases.
  • Bachelor’s degree or other challenging experience of at least four years that you persisted through.
  • Located in Orange County or Los Angeles. Sorry, no relocation available.

What’s in it for you:

  • An incredible compensation plan, with no cap on commissions.
  • Bragging rights working at the most impressive data center in Southern California.
  • HMO/PPO with Dental for employees, with company contribution towards the cost of dependents.
  • Nine paid holidays per year (more than most!) in addition to ten days of paid time off.
  • Fun office field trips and team lunches.
  • Training and personal development opportunities, so you’ll never stop learning.
  • Unlimited snacks, along with a gym membership to work them off.
  • Coffee, if you’re a closer.

So, we've shared a lot about us and how we're searching for someone extraordinary. Is that you? Imagine what it would be like to work here, and use your cover letter to tell us what makes you the perfect candidate and how you'll make a difference as part of our team.

If this isn’t the right opportunity for you, perhaps it might be for someone you know? Help us find each other by forwarding this posting!

Please no phone calls or visitors. Also, we’re really not interested in working with recruiters. Thank you for kindly respecting this decision.
