The Giving Block is looking for a motivated B2B sales rep to join our team selling the leading cryptocurrency fundraising solution to nonprofits and charity organizations. We are a growing team based in Washington DC, but distributed globally.

  • Highly Preferred: Familiarity with and/or experience in the nonprofit sector

What Makes You A Good Fit?

Commitment — Creating new strategies, analyzing data, and an entrepreneurial mindset to help us grow long term are all important. We’re looking for someone that we can rely on in the long run. Our team is small but growing quickly so we want someone that is looking for a long-term role. This also means you’ll have the opportunity to grow into new roles and responsibilities as the company grows.

 

Proactiveness — As a decentralized team, we’re looking for self-starters. Those who enjoy taking the lead, figuring out what needs to be done and getting on with it. We don’t micromanage, so you need to have the motivation and know that everyone on the team is taking charge of their own workload, objectives, and deliverables.

 

Personality — We’re looking for someone that has a quality over quantity mindset when it comes to their work. We need someone that’s happy getting their hands dirty with any task that comes their way and someone that enjoys working in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment. This includes when you get on the phone - being a good conversationalist closes deals.
