Full Cycle Inbound Account Executive

We have more inbound leads than we can handle and our marketing team is holding back.

Are you a highly ambitious, honest, and technically savvy BDR or Account Executive who is excited to make a meaningful impact at a fast growing tech startup? Do you like to work collaboratively with a team to close new business? At Groundbreaker, you will persistently and professionally nurture prospects through the full sales cycle and ensure a smooth handoff to Customer Success. Your focus will be on empowering C-suite executives of small real-estate investment companies to efficiently allocate capital and create impact in their communities.

At Groundbreaker, we’re making real estate investment more transparent, accessible and efficient across the entire real estate investment industry – one of the oldest, largest, and most inaccessible investment industries. We believe in empowering every real estate investment professional – not just big institutions, to efficiently allocate capital and create impact in our communities. 

We value transparency, giving attention to detail, and a laser focus on achieving individual and company goals. We hire people who are self-driven, entrepreneurial, and passionate team players. We are working to 10x our growth this year and need you to help us achieve this mission.
