Being a Sales Development Representative at Avrios

The ideal Sales Development Representative is a hungry, perseverant and focused native German speaker who is not afraid to pick up the phone to engage with new customers and grow our sales.

  • You qualify leads and identify their needs through prospecting calls and emails.
  • Use your knowledge of B2B selling with a short sales cycle to articulate the value that Avrios can provide.

  • Maintain accurate information on prospects and interaction activities through our CRM platform
  • Work closely with the marketing team to increase the awareness of Avrios and to both evolve and improve the lead qualification process
  • You prioritize your own tasks and use your entrepreneurial skills to become a driving force within new markets

A day in the life of an SDR:

Start the day with a coffee and sales stand-up meeting, discussing daily and weekly goals with the team. It's always good to verbalise the plan for the day. First prospecting call of the day is imminent, time to understand the potential customer's needs that marketing has helped cultivate and solve their pains with the software. They are a good fit for Avrios, so you hand them over to your Account Executive. The phone rings it’s Mr. X who checked out our website. He would like to learn more about our pricing. The day continues with several prospecting calls and follow ups from yesterday. There are still a few email responses from prospects dripping into your inbox, so you work through these as you go. Towards the evening, it makes no sense to call anymore, so you prepare for tomorrow. Who else would be a good fit for us? You discuss it with marketing and set up tomorrow's campaign.
