Account Executive

The Account Executive is a key member of Campus Sonar's Business Development team, which is comprised of respected experts who see every potential opportunity as a research opportunity—a chance to learn more about a campus, its strategic priorities, innovation orientation, and potential for social intelligence to improve outcomes. We don’t sell widgets; we possess a specialized expertise and seek partners who are in need of exactly what we offer. We sell through the authentic desire to contribute to strategic priorities, always conducting ourselves with integrity. We value and measure results rather than activities.

The Account Executive brings a value-first mentality to conversations with pre-qualified leads in order to create winning partnership proposals and close new business deals. You will also work a small, targeted list of prospective clients with whom you can build new relationships or nurture existing relationships. It will be your job to establish the strategic vision with your prospective clients and build appropriate social listening proposals to meet their needs. You will have a keen eye to spot opportunities and leverage relationships to grow our business, while continually advancing the higher education industry’s use of social insights to drive strategy. This position has a six-month onboarding period with a salary of $65,000–$70,000 based on experience.
