Outbound Sales Manager

Help Scout is unlike other SaaS companies. We’re a B-Corp that has achieved the trifecta: We care about the Product, the Customer, and the Employee. With over 12,000 happy customers who consistently rate us above the competition in NPS ratings; employees that believe in the vision and the remote-first culture; and a customer-friendly product that has 99.99% up-time, Help Scout pursues excellence in all three domains.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen consistent growth as a company and in 2022 we’re looking to accelerate that growth by expanding our sales team. We’re looking for real go-getters who see a target and want to demolish it. We are looking for individuals who want to be part of a sales team who cares about their customers and knows that the best way to serve them is by being a product and industry expert who can guide them to the right outcome.

Help Scout is a fully remote company and has been for the last 10 years. We’ve figured out how to onboard employees the right way and we know how to generate a close-knit team even when spread out across the globe. Come take a look.

About Us
Help Scout is made by roughly 120 people in 80+ cities around the world, all with a passion for helping others. We come from diverse backgrounds and are united by an enthusiasm for great products and delightful customer experiences. Help Scout launched in 2011 and today we have more than 12,000 paying customers in 140+ countries.

Why Help Scout?
We're remote. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked remotely before — we’ve been doing it for nearly a decade and are helping to write the playbook — we’re happy to show you the ropes. Most folks that get a taste of working in a "remote first" company have a hard time going back to the old way of doing things.

We’re passionate about diversity and inclusion. The data is abundantly clear about diverse teams being more successful, and we're dedicated to setting the team up for success. Today our leadership team is 62% women, and that's just the start. Here's our DEI Dashboard where you can see all of our team demographic data and read about our commitment to this work.

We're committed to SMBs for the long term. Help Scout is focused entirely on serving small and midsize businesses, typically up to 500 employees, because those companies view customer service differently. It's not a cost to be optimized, it's their most effective marketing tool and a key differentiator from the competition. We built Help Scout for companies that truly value being customer-centric (like us) and want a product that shares their values.

We're leaving the world better than we found it. Did you know Help Scout is a certified B Corporation, with a mission to give away at least 1% of our product through Help Scout for Good? Our company exists not just to help ourselves, but to invest in our team, our customers, our community, and our environment.

Our commitment to you
We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.
