Modern Tribe is looking for a solutions architect with strong technical skills to drive new growth for the agency. This is a hybrid role between senior sales lead and a solutions architect. In this role at Modern Tribe you will help the company identify leads, develop relationships and close deals in line with our company values.
The ideal candidate for this role is someone who has been writing proposals, selling large scale projects and maintaining key relationships for a successful digital agency for 3+ years and has been technically involved in online projects for 5+ years.
You’ve been running projects for years: you’ve done your own sales, have a proven track record writing proposals that close deals, know how to work with WordPress, and understand the nuances of the WordPress business world. You’ve sold projects in the $75 – $250k+ range, and aren’t afraid to go bigger.
Above all else, your daily attitude + output embody Modern Tribe’s company ethos of “live well and do good work”: you thrive on keeping the team happy and healthy. Matchmaking — not hitting sales numbers — is your jam. You hustle hard, enjoy the game and relish a genuine success. We pride ourselves on solving real problems for people rather than clutter the interwebs with more shit. If you jive with the mission of setting your team up for success, giving them the right flow and the right kind of projects, even if it means rejecting a potentially-lucrative gig…we’d love to hear from you.
Note that this is not an account management role and scoping + strategy experience are a must-have for this role. Modern Tribe is ONLY looking for technical sales candidates at this time.Inclusion Statement
Modern Tribe is committed to a culture that embraces diversity and inclusion. We foster an environment of collaboration, open engagement, fairness and respect regardless of differences in age, race, disability, national origin, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. As a hybrid workspace ranging from distributed contractors to traditional employees, we value the unique perspectives and experiences of our global team.
We come from all walks of life. We are small business owners. We are tattoo aficionados and 80’s movie buffs and ex-pats. We are homeschool teachers. We are single parents. We are musicians, college drop-outs, and entrepreneurs. We are travelers, feminists, runners, volunteers, and makers. We are a Modern Tribe.
Each of Modern Tribe’s sales team members closes upwards of $1 million in new project work each year. The company provides a healthy pipeline to keep things rolling. Team members are also expected to be out generating leads themselves through speaking at events, blogging, local networking, etc. We build relationships.
The solutions architect position at Modern Tribe is primarily focused on lead qualification and managing the sales funnel through contract close. Specific tasks this will involve include:
Work from anywhere in North, Central or South America. If your timezone is outside of US business hours, but you work at least 3+ hours of overlap each day, let's chat. You must be fluent in English. You just need a computer and a strong wifi signal to support daily video chats with the Tribe.Compensation
This is an hourly gig and project load will vary, but we anticipate approximately 15-20 hours per week of work. Compensation depends on experience. Keep in mind that Modern Tribe’s sales team does NOT offer commissions at this time.Perks
