Fishbowl is an industry leading, top supplier of manufacturing and warehouse management software for small, medium, and enterprise sized businesses across 40+ verticals. While our mission is to deliver amazing software, service, training, and support to our customers to help them grow and scale their business operations, our passion is helping people. Whether you are new to owning and operating a business, or you have been at it for 20+ years, Fishbowl provides simplicity and flow for business owners and makes it easier for them to focus on what they love most, running their business.

To support the mission of Fishbowl, we have recently partnered with Diversis Capital to invest in Fishbowl’s growth and market scale. We are well on our way to developing exciting new cloud-based products that will continue to surprise and delight our existing and future customers. We also have exciting plans to expand our efforts internationally and are focused on building a globally oriented team that will allow us to scale our operations and future market growth potential.

The Opportunity

As an Account Executive, your role will be to bring new customers into the business by deeply understanding the pains in their existing workflows, demonstrating Fishbowl’s capabilities to solve those needs, and professionally and respectfully controlling the sales process through close. You are self-motivated, organized and have a meticulous attention to detail regarding customer follow-ups, data tracking, accurate records and documentation of all sales activities and coordination through our CRM. You can build urgency based on the information provided to you from the prospect, you listen more than you talk, you learn and pivot quickly, you’re comfortable with the speed of change that comes with a fast-growing company, and you like to have fun!

You’ll benefit from an SDR team that does the prospecting work above you in the funnel. Your responsibility is to take each precious prospect and deliver a sales experience that creates raving fans for our company and our products. You’ll be well surrounded by expert resources to equip you and aid you in any part of executing our sales process, and you’ll help us improve and serve our prospects and customers better by helping us test and learn our way into the best practices available.
