Rally gives e-commerce merchants the freedom to build a checkout experience that reflects their brand. We support a number of merchants on platforms like BigCommerce and Swell. We are also part of a growing headless commerce ecosystem, playing a critical role in joining a flexible front-end experience with the backend that best suits the merchant.
Our goal is to give merchants the tools to create a seamless checkout experience, connect more deeply with their customers, and significantly impact revenue growth. We appreciate a decentralized ethos, are diving into Web3, and are merchant and revenue-focused, always. Merchants should own their checkout and Rally is here to help them do that.
The Sales Development Representative's responsibilities center around prospecting—predominantly generating leads through outbound emails and cold calling. Important aspects of prospecting that the SDR will own: building successful outbound sequences, identifying new lead sources, and using existing systems to build lead lists.
The SDR will also play a key role in maintaining a clean pipeline view in Hubspot, qualifying inbound leads, ensuring prospects show up to demos, and contributing to the feedback loop between sales and product as well as the rest of the go-to-market function.
This is an exciting and dynamic moment in Rally's growth as a brand and company and this role will be critical in building our customer base. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about all things prospecting—tackling the puzzle that is finding the messaging and method of contact that works across merchants and personas.
