Please read ad in entirety before applying!

Note: The health and safety of our community is paramount. Due to current COVID-19 conditions we have re-opened offices on a limited basis with safety measures as advised by the CDC and other health authorities. Initial interviews will be conducted via phone or video conferencing.
We are currently targeting August for a limited sales training focused on expansion. If you will be relocating in the future or are not available in that time frame for full employment in our Downtown Portland Office, please check back on our website for future opportunities and updates: www.ism-usa.com.
ISM is on a mission to expand our footprint as the global leader in sports marketing and management in the event hospitality space. Our successful sales execs come from many different walks of life. For 23 years as of this March, ISM has been the industry leader in global event sports marketing and management specializing in customized premium sports hospitality packages. Behind our packages are the people driving us forward every day. The values we live by at ISM are: GENUINE, TEAMWORK, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, and TENACITY. We know that success comes from hard work and deserves to be recognized and rewarded. If you’re a person that loves the challenge of an exciting sales career, are extremely motivated by the chase, and want to feel like part of a family — then you just might be who we’re looking for.
The role, an Inside Sales position, will be responsible for new business development, which starts with “cold” calling (this simply means you haven’t spoken to them before - it's how many of the biggest companies in the world bring on new clients!) but we teach you how to “warm” the call using your personality and communication skills very quickly. You will be calling corporate executives around the U.S. and presenting opportunities for them to host at major golf events (U.S. Open, Ryder Cup Matches, The Masters, etc.) and other “big ticket” events such as the College Football Playoff Championship, NCAA Basketball Tournament, Kentucky Derby, and more.
What You’ll Do:
  • Drive sales activities including proactive targeted outreach to prospects as well as develop qualified leads, set meetings, update and maintain your sales database, and do research on targeted prospect companies
  • Develop a strong understanding of our product offerings and articulate our value proposition clearly
  • Work closely with sales leadership to develop strategies for targeting and execute on tactical elements to support those activities. You will learn from some of the most experienced and talented sales execs in our industry
What We Provide:
  • Comprehensive Training
  • Ongoing mentoring
  • Base salary + commission + bonus, uncapped
  • Bonuses, both cash & prize (monthly, quarterly & annually)
  • Bike room, locker facilities, gym facilities
  • Company medical/dental plans and 401K enrollment
  • PTO and major holidays off (4 weeks+ paid time off each calendar year)
  • First-year avg. range of $40K-$65K+ (range includes base + commission). Year two $80K+
  • Growth-opportunities into Sales Management / National Accounts
  • Great corporate culture and community volunteerism
