AVAILABLE OPPORTUNITIES

Sales Professional

Have your friends or colleagues ever said, “Wow, you could sell a freezer to an Eskimo.”? If so, we have a great opportunity for you. We aren’t actually selling freezers, but our sales territories do reach as far as the North and South Poles.

We sell a product and concept that is relatively new to the marketplace, Heavy Equipment Training Simulators. These simulators should “sell themselves” but the objections can seem as difficult as “selling a freezer to an Eskimo”. We are looking for individuals who understand a long sales cycle and thrive on the pressure of aggressive sales goals.

We have, and are planning to expand, a very unique sales team who has learned how to compete internally while at the same time supporting each other as a team. A unique sales team requires unique individuals to accomplish the end goal.

All this offers the opportunity to work in a very cool environment in the Warehouse District in downtown Peoria with some of the most amazing co-workers you can imagine. Simformotion LLC. is a great place to work; we believe in working hard and having fun at the same time.

Are you “that” unique individual, who knows how to close sales and who is looking for a challenge? Are you wanting a job that is rewarding in so many ways – from financial to the gratification of knowing you’ve made a difference? If so, contact us; we want to talk to you. Compensation and benefits are very competitive. Experience/knowledge of heavy equipment is a plus.

If this sounds like the position you have been searching for, please email your resume to: opportunities@csesoftware.com.
