Calling all current and/or aspiring “renaissance” Account Executives! 


Are you looking to play an integral role in the growth of a dynamic, profitable, and mission-driven start-up? If so, please read on...


Who (or what) is Percy?


Percy is a next generation recruiting firm that sits at the nexus of HR/tech and recruiting. With a mission to humanize the hiring process, we leverage proprietary technology and skilled recruiters to provide “white-glove” service for both the candidates we support and the clients we serve. We focus on building long-term relationships with companies that have high-volume and ongoing recruiting needs, which allows our business model to share the desired recurring revenue properties of SaaS (software as a service) platforms. 


Since Percy primarily recruits for entry-level sales and customer service positions, we play an invaluable role in helping job seekers navigate the labyrinth of modern day job hunting. Most of our candidates do not benefit from a college degree or years of professional experience, which is why we provide value-add services such as interview coaching and resume reviews. We treat our candidates with dignity, coach them up, and help them climb the ladder of upward economic mobility.


If you are looking for an opportunity to deploy capitalism for the greater good, look no further. Help us humanize the hiring process for entry-level workers nationwide!


What role does the Account Executive play?


The Account Executive role is a key position for our young but growing firm. Percy’s Account Executive will own a nation-wide territory and work to build relationships with executives across all industries and geographies. His/her ultimate goal will be to dramatically increase our market share of the US staffing industry, which is expected to grow to $158.7 billion dollars in the year 2020. 


We are looking for a creative, optimistic, and hungry sales professional who treats the sales process as code to be cracked. At Percy, you will be anything but a cog in a machine. You will be encouraged to run experiments and deploy novel thinking as we refine our entrepreneurial sales process. If you are looking for a sales environment that balances autonomy and support while providing massive upside, you are looking in the right place with Percy. 


How about career development?


Percy’s Account Executive will benefit from working directly with the CEO on sales strategy and execution, and he/she will have the opportunity for direct mentorship from our board members. The Account Executive will be involved with all aspects of the sales cycle, from lead generation and prospecting through contract negotiation and kickoff calls. 


The smaller nature of our sales team will provide the Account Executive with a uniquely broad lens and enable him/her a clear pathway to greater responsibility. Work with the CEO to refine our sales process as you execute, and then help hire the team who will bring your vision to life as we scale. Over time, your success will pave a clear pathway to VP of Sales / Chief Revenue Officer responsibilities.


Who is the ideal candidate?


We’re looking for an entrepreneurial spirit who can be readily described as sharp, driven, and resilient. Our ideal candidate understands that entrepreneurial selling requires a unique mix of grit, story-telling, and creativity, but they also know success in this endeavor unlocks career potential like few other avenues. 


If you’re “one of us”, you relish the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and do the work, whatever it may be. Our team is bonded by a deep commitment to our mission, a drive to grow the business, and a desire to be around other smart, kind, and funny professionals who like being themselves while at the office.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've had the opportunity to grow into new roles as our company has evolved. I began in a sales role and transitioned to recruiting. More recently, I've become an Account Manager, which allows me to flex my client-facing skills while leading a small team.

What is your vision for the company?

Through our niche focus on high-volume, entry-level hiring we have a unique opportunity to "do good" while growing our business. As we scale, we'll continue to develop and deploy technology that keeps us ahead of the curve. Most importantly, we'll never lose our social justice mindset or stray from our mission to humanize the hiring process.



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

As a an active board member and investor in Percy, my goal is to help grow our organization into a large and world-class recruiting firm. I enjoy mentoring Percy team members and contributing to strategic-level decision making. I happily avail my time and energy in whatever way the team would like to make use of it - and I love doing it!
