At Altus, we believe that great students are more than just book smart. We develop and deliver a platform for assessing professionalism for today’s top academic programs.
At Altus Assessments, we work in partnership with post-secondary academic institutions to help get people with the empathy, resiliency and communication skills into the programs that grow our future medical professionals and teachers in Canada, the US and as far away as Australia. We uncover humanity through psychometric evaluations and tests consisting of situational, open-ended questions that don’t have a right or wrong answer. Using our rigorous, well-researched and tested assessments combined with data-driven insights, we help determine what the chances of them successfully completing a program is, as well as how professional they will be.
If you are passionate about building tools that measure people and their human responses rather than marketing algorithms and hashtags, this is the place to be.
Who we need
Reporting to the VP, Sales we are adding an Account Executive to our team to support our growth. We need someone who is comfortable engaging prospective customers in Higher Education. You enjoy enriching discussions with potential customers on the current state of research for academic admissions and love to share how our assessments can help improve their process. This is an opportunity to take your experience in sales and apply it to selling a product that will change the face of healthcare and other professions - literally.
What problem are we trying to solve?
Academia is a sector where decisions are made under careful consideration: The issue of fair assessments that seek out the best in an applicant’s soft skills is not always urgent to busy people administering admissions - when one cycle ends, another starts, leaving little time to look at improving the process. By taking the approach of storytelling, examining data analytics and presenting academic research, you will generate interest. In order to take the next step, it’s vital that our new Account Executive is respectful, process-oriented, and ready to step up to the challenges of overcoming objections and gaining trust.
Who you are
You are authentic and humble, continuously learning and growing. You believe in our mission, and you are passionate about making a positive impact on society through the adoption of our assessments. You are genuinely warm, smart and trustworthy. You are ready and willing to commit to a longer sales cycle while nurturing relationships and having conversations you find truly enlightening.
