Inside Sales Account Executive, Inside Sales (Remote) 

Full-Time, Remote / Salaried, Exempt + Commission / Includes Benefits, PTO, Flexible Schedule, Equity

The Steno Inside Sales Team is looking for an Account Executive ready to roll up their sleeves and help us build. As one of the first 10 AEs on our team, the ceiling for this role is sky high. With incredible product-market fit (in a very antiquated industry), and lots of greenfield to attack, you’ll have no problem beating your number - as long as you’re willing to put in the effort. 

As an Inside AE, you’ll be responsible for reaching out to law firms across the country, explaining what makes Steno great, and getting them excited to try us out on their next deposition. 

Who are you? 

You love sales and the earning potential that comes along with it. The idea of working at an early-stage startup gets you excited, and taking on more responsibility is a challenge you want to sign up for. You’re determined to be the best at whatever you do, and welcome feedback on how to get better. 

It’s never a question of whether or not you’ll put in the effort; your motivation comes from within. And while you might make every mistake once, you try not to make the same mistake twice. 

You’re a leader, but you also know how to follow a process when it makes sense. You have a growth mindset to maximize your potential, but you’re not afraid to speak up on how things can be improved. 

You love being efficient and you’re not here to make excuses, only to get results. Hard work doesn’t scare you, especially when you know there’s a reward on the other side. You want to be on a team where you can have an outsized impact with outsized upside. 

And don’t worry if you don’t have any experience in the legal industry, we’ll teach you!

On a regular basis, you will 

  • Reach out to law firms to explain how Steno works, in order to get them to use Steno products and services

  • Manage the full sales cycle, from initial outreach to deal creation and close

  • Be accountable to your daily KPIs, and put in the effort required to meet your sales targets

  • Work across teams to ensure a positive customer experience, and identify opportunities where you can expand wallet share and onboard new firms

  • Travel to company-sponsored events and client functions to develop rapport, establishing new business relationships and deepening existing relationships. 

You’re gonna crush if

  • You have 1-3 years of experience in a similar role, or just love sales. 

  • You’re a high-activity, metrics-focused salesperson, who isn’t afraid to get in the trenches.

  • You’re a quick learner and feel comfortable picking up new systems and processes. You're comfortable in a high-tech environment and are already a power user of tech in your daily work life. Familiarity with Google Workspace, CRMs, and digital-first communication are a must. 

  • You’re a dynamic thinker with exceptional verbal communications skills, and know how to listen as well.

  • You have the desire to work with a fast-paced and quickly growing tech start-up and you’re enthusiastic about the opportunity for growth within the company.

  • You recognize that feedback is a gift, and seek out direct and critical analysis of your sales performance to reach your full potential.

  • You are a conscientious, responsive, and professional teammate who views everyone as a client and strives to build strong, and cross-functional relationships.
