What do you do at LitLingo?
Favorite part of working at LitLingo?
The culture. Living in Austin, I have heard a lot about working at start-ups but never had the opportunity to work at one until now. Previously the companies I worked with employed hundreds of people, which certainly came with its perks (e.g., decked out kitchens, huge sales kick-off events at the beginning of the year). While we may be missing out on some of those niceties, we have a close group of brilliant people, all working together to reach the same goal. Here, hierarchies aren’t as rigid, and everyone is willing to help out. I couldn’t be happier.
What do you find most rewarding about your role?
The people. Whether it’s a prospect, client, or colleague, I love the relationship-building aspect of sales. I’ve played sports most of my life, and working in sales rehashes a little of that experience: you have the competitive (e.g., amongst peers, other businesses, and yourself) and the collaborative aspects (i.e., at the end of the day, you are on the same team).
What makes someone successful on your team?
Grit, passion, and perseverance to achieve long terms goals. I am also a huge believer in teamwork and collaboration. We all have the same north star that guides us; as long as we keep our eye on the prize and put the work in, I know we will make it.
What’s the biggest problem your team is solving?
As a team, we are dedicated to helping educate people about the hidden problems unchecked business communications can cause an organization. Notably, this issue that companies are wrestling with is not new, but our product is. We are offering a brand new solution to a vast market whose only alternatives, up until now, are all extremely costly and retroactive. As an individual contributor, my goal is to get out there and spread the word that there is now a product that can help your business communicate better.
What projects are you most excited about?
I am excited to help build out the lead generation process while driving sales motions into play.
