Solutions Consultant

Location: Kansas City, MO satellite office or Washington, DC
Posted Date: 2017-12-10

Position Overview

The Solutions Consultant is a critical role on the Synoptos Business Development team and instrumental in the success of Synoptos’ go-to-market strategies. The SC is responsible for populating and mining Synoptos’ contact database for prospective customers and opportunities, then leading potential clients through a structured buying cycle where they qualify customer interest, introduce Synoptos’ solutions, work with the Services team to produce structured product demonstrations, prepare scopes of work and quotes, and negotiate and finalize purchases in order to win more business for the Synoptos Media Insights practice.

The SC is responsible for understanding Synoptos’ mission and value proposition, and having in-depth knowledge of our various products and services and well as their values for potential customers. SCs are required to use sales discovery techniques to find clients that are the “best fit” for Synoptos’ offerings, and – when paired with a Services team within one of our existing verticals – shall know details and trends within that specific industry and practice area.

Solutions Consultants must be able to work within a structured organizational environment with little day-to-day oversight; after initial training, work may be performed from a remote location aside from required in-office days as directed by the Vice President, Business Development. Adherence to activity metrics and documentation within Salesforce (or other CRM) is an absolute requirement. The right individual will receive extensive training in both sales methodologies as well as specifics of Synoptos’ products, services and benefits.
