Hi, we’re Rheaply 👋

Over the past year, the world has cultivated a new sense of appreciation for everyday stuff. With global supply chains collapsing and operating budgets shrinking across the board, we have seen the demand for goods and services skyrocket. The obvious solution to being more resourceful and cost-conscious has been to increase the value of everything already around us. At Rheaply, we’re helping organizations do that by developing better inventory management and resource sharing tools. Although rewarding, this problem is not ours alone to solve, which is why we need extraordinarily talented people like you to join our team. While we’re also excited to one day meet in person (and hopefully soon!), we are ready to conduct our entire interviewing and onboarding process remotely.

Founded in 2016, Rheaply, Inc. is a Chicago-based technology company focused on solutions for making organizations more efficient, sustainable, and connected. Rheaply has developed and launched the only exchange technology for researchers to share their ideas and surplus resources with colleagues to reduce time, costs, as well as environmental waste. On Rheaply’s Asset Exchange Manager (AxM), users from all departments can access resources and expertise from colleagues in the same organization or beyond. Recently, Rheaply has been featured in The New York Times, Nature, VERGE, and Greenbiz, chosen as a 10 Big Idea in Innovation by Chicago Magazine, a Circular Economy Solver by MIT SOLVE, and received the 2019 & 2020 Sustainable Procurement Leadership (SPLC) Award for Circular Economy Leadership among other notable awards and recognitions.

Opportunity 

As we continue to expand our business, we are seeking a business development representative to join our growing revenue team.

 

About the Role
 

Rheaply is committed to finding straightforward solutions to complex problems. We are constantly learning from each other, and especially from our clients. We strive to understand problems at the microscopic level and become industry experts in building, deploying, and iterating sustainable, circular solutions. 

As a Business Development Representative, you will be the first point of contact for prospective clients. In this role, you’ll be responsible for researching, prospecting, and leading engaging conversations with potential Rheaply clients. Creating a great first impression that builds rapport and trust will be your first step toward developing a pipeline of qualified opportunities for our sales team. You will work closely with both marketing and sales as you help to create a pipeline of opportunities by following up with and nurturing inbound leads and “cold prospects” into specific target accounts to generate qualified sales opportunities for the Account Executive to further qualify, negotiate, and close.
 

What You’ll do 

  • Drive lead generation by identifying qualified contacts at target accounts and organizations

  • Build our sales pipeline by setting meetings with qualified contacts

  • Gather qualifying information by making 50+ calls per day to identify target companies’ needs and objectives

  • Generate and refine outbound email campaigns and sequences

  • Attend conferences and tradeshows to promote our products and meet with prospects (Mix of in-person and virtually for now!)

  • Utilize Salesforce, Apollo, ZoomInfo and other sales and prospecting tools proficiently

  • Use online resources to understand customers’ pain points and work to solve them

  • Work with your team and other departments to maximize sales

  • Track and report progress on daily, weekly, and monthly goals
     

What You’ll Need

  • 1-5 years of direct sales experience (experienced BDRs are welcome!)

  • The ability to source great prospects and obtain all necessary information to equip our sales team to close the deal

  • Demonstrated ability to meet and/or exceed quotas (sales rankings preferred)

  • Proficiency in writing concise, action-oriented communications generating interest in further discussion with the Rheaply team

  • Ability to efficiently prioritize tasks and manage time

  • A coachable individual who’s open to new ideas and feedback, and is looking to advance their skill sets

  • An entrepreneurial spirit - the idea of being an active participant in a growing company must excite you

  • Must be tech savvy and able to navigate a CRM

  • Ability to manage multiple tasks in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment

  • Self-motivated with the ability to work independently as well as part of a team

 

What We’d Like to See from You 

  • Experience turning target accounts into active opportunities 

  • You are a scrappy, motivated team player who understands the various needs of a growing company

  • You ask the right questions to uncover customer requirements and clearly articulate how Rheaply’s software will address them

  • You partner well across the Rheaply organization, regularly interfacing with Sales, Marketing, and Customer Success to maintain alignment and refine go to market strategy

Are you?

  • A scrappy, motivated team player able to lead and contribute to a diverse set of knowledge and backgrounds.

  • A builder who is able to pivot to the needs of a growing business and culture.

  • Curious, research focused and ready to learn. 

  • Able to juggle dozens of projects, big and small, while driving relentless product execution

  • Living Rheaply’s Core Values. (see below)

An Insider's view of Rheaply

What are some social events your company does?

In the past, we relied on our WeWork space to provide fun events for our team to join. Now, as we continue to work from home, it has forced us to get creative by hosting digital gaming happy hours, comedians to roast us on zooms calls or inspirational business leaders for lunch & learns.

Garr

Chief of Staff

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

It’s my first time working for a company virtually (I don't even know how tall our CEO is), but it still feels like I’ve been part of the family for a long time. We are a people-first team, and it's clear through our random catch up calls, all-hands meetings and pings on Slack. I’m genuinely excited for Monday morning, what’s better than that?

Nizar

Senior Director of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

Rheaply has supported my career growth by giving me the tools to develop new skills based on my interests. I joined the marketing team but found myself interested in the technical side of our product. After expressing interest, I was given the tools to develop new skills and now work full-time with our team developing and testing our software!

Maddie

Senior Product Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Even as our Rheaply team continues to grow, we continue to prioritize one-on-one meetings where no questions and ideas are off limits. Our goal is to support transparency, diversity of thought and staying personally connected.
