Account Executive, Inside Sales (Folsom, CA)

We are a media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government and education, with our corporate headquarters based in Folsom, CA.

Our work has been cited in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Time, The Washington Post and USA Today.
We are the marketing and strategy professionals bringing our customers together with their customers based on our market intelligence, research and varied offerings. We have many Subject Matter Experts in house to connect the dots between the issues the public sector is trying to solve and the solutions our private sector clients can provide.

Our clients consider us trusted advisors and partners in their sales and marketing strategy in the State and Local Government, and Education space.
In this role, you will be responsible for developing new customers, as well as re-activating former customers. This is achieved by cultivating relationships, as well as pitching and promoting all e.Republic products and services (print and digital media, event sponsorships and research products) to Technology and Education companies, both in the state and local market.

Qualified candidates will have prior sales experience (candidates with media sales experience preferred), with experience meeting quotas, excellent communication and presenting skills,
as well as general proficiency in Microsoft Office, and CRM programs.
