Inside Sales Representative
Sales | Portland, OR | Full Time
Founded in 2013, CrowdStreet’s technology solutions provide real estate investment firms (sponsors) a scalable platform for growing and managing a large investor-base. We are transforming real estate investing by creating universally accessible, transparent, and efficient markets. While our competitors are positioning themselves as online versions of institutional funding, we’re the only major provider delivering a comprehensive online fundraising and investor management solution. CrowdStreet’s platform extends beyond the fundraising of a deal to cultivating and growing lifetime value for the sponsor through building, managing and expanding investor relationships.
To support our company’s rapid growth, we are hiring a Inside Sales Rep with a proven track record of success selling technology solutions into the real estate or finance industries. This position is based at our Portland headquarters and reports to our Director of Sales.
What You’ll Be Doing
As an Inside Sales Rep, you will be responsible for selling our SaaS “Sponsor Direct” product to commercial real estate investment managers (sponsors) within your designated territory.
Our customers are private real estate investment firms, so understanding how they think, act and invest, is paramount to success in this role.

Our technology solutions are complex, so you have to be very intelligent and adaptable with the ability to position our value-proposition based on your buyer's needs.
Real estate is a relationship-based business, so your job does not end after your first sale is closed. Fortunately, you will be partnered with a Customer Success Manager on each of your customer accounts.
