Sales Hiring

Tech growth and the Great Resignation have accelerated the demand for qualified sales candidates. With thousands of professionals changing jobs each year, we're excited to expand Sales hiring capabilities on our platform! 

With our new Sales solution, you can source your entire sales team while saving up to 4x the amount of recruiting time. Lean on our technical hiring expertise to both build and monetize with your tech and sales teams. 

Filtering Sales Candidates

You can easily search for Sales talent whose background, experiences, career preferences, and more specifically match the position you're seeking to fill. These help you narrow down the list of candidates and show those who are most qualified. 

Search by roles

Hired offers a variety of sales sub-roles. At present, we can help you source Sales candidates with the following specialties - Account Executive, Sales Manager, Sales Development Rep, Account Manager, Customer Success Manager, Sales Operations, and Business Development.

Search by skills

You can search based on skills jobseekers have added to their profiles. These skills include SMB, Mid-Market, Enterprise, SaaS, Account Strategy, Business Development, Full-Cycle Sales, Prospective, Value Based Selling, and more.

Search by sales experience

New and improved search capabilities for sales candidates include average size deal, customer segment, sales cycle, products sold, sold to audience, must have and nice-to-have skills. We now require Sales Candidates to provide these details for their most relevant role and encourage them to include for all other past sales positions. 

Search by work preferences 

Like with all other position types, you can expand your filters to include remote jobseekers to increase your pipeline 10x. Additionally, you can target your outreach with profile details and filters for work location preferences, time zone, and remote work status

Search by career path

Hire sales leaders as well as individual contributors to best align to jobseeker career goals.

Search for underrepresented talent

In an effort to help you build more equitable and diverse teams, and as part of your DEI hiring strategy, you can also source your sales team using the Diversity Goals filter.

Now, jobseekers who self-report their demographic information, match your search criteria and qualify as underrepresented (as defined by the EEOC) will be featured at the top of your list once you have enabled the Diversity Goals feature.

  • Over 80% of jobseekers have provided first-party demographic data
  • Over 30% of Hired's sales jobseekers are underrepresented
