Are you entrepreneurial and achievement-oriented? Are you interested in accelerating your sales career? Does changing the face to education for professors and students excite you? If so, whew, do we have an opportunity for you!
Here at Top Hat, we’re looking for motivated and successful people to join our fast-growing team.

    • Insight. You will provide insight into the education market and be a leader in our industry.

    • Travel. As a NAE, you will be expected to travel roughly 40% of the time during peak season, and approximately 10% of the time during the off-season, in order to close deals and assist reps other reps with their closing.

    • You are a leader, able to coach, motivate, and lead by example, while also being a team player with a positive and collaborative attitude
    • You have experience working in a similar role with previous sales/coaching/leadership experience
    • You have the sales skills, including the ability to drive & close large deals, prospect effectively, and run the full sales cycle (including cold calling, demos, probing, and product pitching)
    • You have effective time management and organization skills
    • You have a strong ability to interpret and apply coaching quickly
    • You are very knowledgeable with common objections and know the best way to handle them
