We seek an experienced outside sales manager to oversee our person-to-person residential outreach teams located in a half-dozen regions across the Pacific NW. These teams hold thousands of conversations with residential and small business customers at doorsteps, events, storefront tables, and over the phone each year.

* Collaborate: Integrate our person-to-person outreach tactics with each other and with digital & paper marketing tactics to maximum effect. Work with the IT & outreach operations teams to continually improve our staff trainings, management processes, and data systems.

* Go and see: Embed yourself in outreach efforts -- in person and on the phone.

* Client interface, reporting, and quality control: Ensure accurate reporting of sales activities & results, excellent representation of programs via words & collateral, and, if assigned, work directly with clients to manage or collaborate on outreach-focused programs.
