Hi, I’m Alex! I’ve been working in sales for innovative startups like SoftBank Robotics and large corporations like NBC Universal for years. Now, I work as an industry mentor at Pathrise to help people land great sales jobs through workshops and 1-on-1 mentorship. Check out this article on the best sales job boards.
If you are looking for your first job out of college or an online program or if you are transitioning careers, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the job search. One of the best ways to save time and energy is by narrowing down your search and using the best sales job boards to use.
We rated each job board for scale (number of opportunities available) and quality (average conversion rate for each opportunity) so you can be sure you are using the best sales job boards for your needs.
General job sites
Most people start their job search with LinkedIn, often setting up their profile when they start school. But just having a profile isn’t enough for you to find a great job. You need to make sure that you strengthen and optimize your LinkedIn page so that it includes your past experiences, projects, and links to your portfolio and the work you have done.
Their job board is robust, but you might find some difficulty if you search “sales” because it is such a broad search term. If you are just starting out in your career and you don’t know what types of roles you’re interested in, try looking for ones that have less experience required. Searching “sales development representative (SDR),” “sales associate,” or adding “entry level” to your searches will help you find positions that match your background.
2. Google Jobs
Google gathers all of the job postings on the Internet and they can be accessed in the Google Jobs section of the site. All you need to do is type “sales jobs” into your Google search bar. It’s surprisingly good! Be aware if you are looking for a job in a different city because they automatically add your current location to the job search.
Quality: 2.5 (especially if you sort by recently posted)
Indeed is one of the largest job sites, so it is not as specialized as some of the other specific boards. You can search by proximity to a city, salary estimate, job type (full-time, part-time, internship, contract, etc), salary range, company, and experience level. The job board is used by a range of industries, so if you are looking for sales positions in tech, you should focus your search on “sales development representative” roles to avoid getting retail positions.
Sales job boards
The AA-ISP has a job board that is focused on inside sales and sales development representative positions and allows job-seekers to filter by keywords, categories, and location. Their roles vary in experience level and feature companies all around the US, including large tech companies like Dell.
A job board specifically focused on sales positions, SalesHeads has over 61,000 sales jobs available with roughly 9,000 new jobs each week. You can search by location and if you set up an account, they will send new jobs directly to your inbox.
You can filter positions based on salary, location, keywords, and industry on SalesJobs.com, which can help make sure you are only looking through openings that make sense for you. This is especially helpful since the site boasts over 1 million sales jobs. Narrowing down your search will be especially important when there are so many opportunities.
If you are only interested in working at startups, AngelList is a good place to look. After you create a profile and include all of your information, you can review positions at startups that are hiring. When you find an opening that you are interested in, you “like” it. Companies also review candidates and express interest in the ones they like. This is often a good place to look if you are a bit more experienced because you will likely be the first or one of the first sales hires.
2. Hacker News
Again, if you are interested primarily in being one of the first sales team members so that you can really make a difference in the company’s growth, you should focus your search on young startups. If you are only interested in startups that have been part of Y Combinator, their job board is a good place to look.
Scale: 0.5/3 (many jobs, but not all for sales)
VentureLoop is a leading job board focused on venture-backed companies. Their sales positions include customer success, SDRs, and account executive roles. Many of the job postings found on VentureLoop cannot be found on any other job board, so it is worth a look.
If you are looking to work at a startup with some clout, one that is a few years old, or on a team that is growing quickly, TechCrunch’s job board, Crunchboard, is a good place to look. Their goal with the job board was to “build the ultimate web insider’s network.”
If you don’t mind interacting with your team over videocha or if you are happy to be the only one working on sales, you should check out the jobs on We Work Remotely. They are the largest community online for remote jobs with over 2,500,000 monthly visitors. Their sales positions are with the marketing ones and they have a separate category for customer success roles.
FlexJobs is a job board for remote, flexible timing, or freelance work. They hand screen all of the positions on the site to ensure they are high quality and real. They offer a lot of sales positions for people looking to work remotely or looking for shorter term projects.
Remote.co is a resource for companies that are looking to hire remote workers. You can filter their job board for sales jobs and review a variety of opportunities. They also have a technology specific jobs newsletter so you can get new openings sent right to you.
Working Nomads is a job board for people looking for remote jobs in the digital space. They have over 1100 sales positions available. You can filter by category or by further narrowing down your search keywords. You can also sign up for their newsletter and get sales openings directly in your inbox.
Focused on remote roles at startups, Remotive.io is an especially helpful job board because it only shows recently posted positions. When a job is new, it means you can get in early and hopefully be one of the first candidates. They have 50+ remote sales jobs and ~35 customer success jobs from July 2020 that you can check out.
6. No Desk
As the name suggests, No Desk is a job board for people looking for positions at companies that allow them to work from anywhere. They have over 35 open sales and 50+ customer success roles for you to review at a variety of companies, from startups to large organizations like Plaid.
7. Remote Woman
If you are looking for a remote job at a female-friendly organization, the job board on Remote Woman would be a good place for you to start. This board is curated specifically by the community so that you know you are applying to trusted companies. They have a specific job board for sales roles that can help you save time in your search.
