  • Ensure compliance with company rules, policies and agreements

The ideal candidate will have

  • At least 10+ years of residential construction management experience, including management of extended teams and many projects concurrently (degrees and certifications aren’t required, but can be a plus)

Our Sales team is essential to helping us continue to grow rapidly – every successful Kabin project begins with a great sales experience, and the fundamental goal of our sales process is to create happy clients who will refer us to their friends and family.  MyKabin’s Sales Managers are responsible for helping clients understand their options, select the Kabin and features that best match their vision, and create a contract and scope of work.  You will conduct property visits, showroom tours, and onsite and virtual contract signings and client meetings.

We will also consider more experienced sales veterans for the role of Sales Director, which (in addition to field-sales responsibilities) would be responsible for managing our Sales team, working with the CEO / COO on sales strategy, and continuing to build out our sales operations infrastructure and processes: CRM, marketing tools, website, open houses, etc.

What you will do

  • Manage new client sales from the point of first contact all the way through contract signing. Ultimately each sales representative should target ~3-5 new client contracts closed per month
  • Travel around the Puget Sound area (currently the western half of King County) to conduct site visits with prospective clients
  • Draft estimates, letters of intent, scope summaries, and detailed contracts
  • Join weekly meetings with MyKabin’s project management and construction teams to make sure that client projects are successful after contract
  • Communicate proactively with our prospective customers about site visits, inspections, cost estimates, etc
  • Adhere to the highest standards of professional conduct and mutual respect with clients and teammates
  • Continually find ways to improve our products and processes and better serve our clients

The ideal candidate will have

  • 5+ years successful track record estimating and selling construction projects and/or real estate, with a priority on helping clients achieve their individual visions. This is equal parts “soft” skill – empathy, respect, listening – and a deep technical understanding of the products and marketplace.  Residential experience is a strong plus.
  • Candidates for Sales Director should have a proven track record of managing a sales team
  • Familiarity with residential construction and real estate, including the ability to review and discuss architectural plans and construction details with a non-technical audience
  • Adaptability, persistence, proactivity, and willingness to say “no” when a property or client isn’t a good fit
  • Fantastic written and verbal communication skills
  • Proficiency with MS Office, CRMs, mapping tools, etc – and the ability to learn new tools and processes as we add them
  • A great attitude, willingness to learn and grow, and flexibility to solve problems as they come up
