Submittable is a feature-rich submission and content workflow platform which allows groups and collaborators in many industries to accept, review, and manage submissions. Attachments that are traditionally sent via email can be bulky, burdensome, and difficult to send around to a group trying to collaborate on a project. Aggregating all these submissions and applications at times makes decision-making on that project difficult, and this is where Submittable has rendered its success. Companies like NBC, SpaceX, Amazon, and the New Yorker all use Submittable as a centralized tool to have everyone work on one platform to collaborate, share notes, and make decisions much faster than before. PLEASE REVIEW The Submittable Website and be familiar with as much as you can before applying. You are a better candidate with the more knowledge you have coming in!

We have cut our teeth and have thousands of clients in the literary and magazine space. We have well-established software with years of development behind it and we are in a very exciting point in our growth as a company. We are beyond the early years of fighting and clawing to make a name, and we're also not a gigantic entity where our employees are just cogs in the wheel. We need energetic and hard-working go-getters to help us broaden our reach. The job entails using our lists of prospected clients to reach out, showcase our product, and bring home the client, as well as working with our existing clients to talk about upgrades and new developments. We are looking for both seasoned veterans in the sales world as well as people who are just getting started but who have the attitude and ability to adapt and position the product best suited for the prospect on the other line. We reach out to prospects primarily via phone, but also via email and prospecting software.
