About Us

Almabase is the leading alumni management software in the US.
We are on a mission to make education affordable to everyone by helping universities & schools build better relationships with their alumni, leading to increased donations.

About the job

Almabase is looking to hire an Account Executive to close new sales. In this role, your goal is to help universities & high schools understand how to improve their alumni program using Almabase. You will be handed marketing qualified leads that are generated through various inbound & outbound channels, and you will be responsible for handling that relationship until they sign a contract. Once they sign a contract, customer success will take over and help them succeed.

While most of the sales happen remotely over Zoom, you will also have opportunities to represent the company at various conferences around the US along with meeting potential customers and selling in-person.

Our ideal candidate has at least 1 year of B2B software sales experience and understands solution-selling to mid-market/enterprise customers.

While a majority of our team is based in India, we are looking for someone located in the US for this role. This is a remote job and you can work from anywhere in the US.
