The Sales Development Representative (SDR) helps generate sales for EVERFI by effectively and efficiently researching, engaging and connecting potential customers to the sales team to drive “top of the sales funnel” activity and help generate pipeline. In addition to prospecting sales opportunities in the market, the SDR also serves as the connection between Demand Generation Marketing & Sales by planning and executing campaigns to engage target personas and accounts. The SDR schedules and helps lead a high volume of qualified Initial Sales Meetings each month and assist Account Executives and Account Managers with surfacing new logo and upsell (account growth) opportunities, and ultimately to revenue, for EVERFI.
