What is Moonrise?

Moonrise is a digital platform that matches workers who need extra cash to make ends meet with companies that need to fill shifts. We are a social impact startup owned by American Family Insurance.  We were built with an ambitious goal: to innovate in a way that would help working families—many of them existing customers of The General, part of the American Family enterprise—that need a financial cushion in case of the unexpected. We traveled the country listening to financially vulnerable Americans and believe we can solve their deepest pain point - easy access to supplementary income. https://www.moonrise.works/


What you’ll do:

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, & outgoing individual to help sell a new product offering called Moonrise Direct.  We need someone who is eager, likes a challenge, and loves to talk to people. Our potential clients have multiple human capital related needs, it will be your job to qualify those who would most benefit from our low-cost direct hire model.  You will be responsible for taking a client from cold call to close (along with the help and guidance of the sales management team)

This is a temp to perm role with an hourly rate of $17/hour until full time hire.  If you are able to consistently meet or exceed quota, you will be offered a salaried position with benefits.

Who are you?

You are looking to make your mark in an organization.  You enjoy talking to people. You aren’t personally offended by hearing “no” and actually see each “no” as one step closer to hearing a “yes”.  You have experience working with all types of people. You write and speak clearly, directly and thoughtfully. You have history staying nimble and thriving in a fast-paced, highly energized, open environment and work well with all levels of management.  Most of all, you are passionate about helping underserved Americans living paycheck to paycheck.
