POSITION OVERVIEW

The Inside Sales Representative (ISR) role is critical to the future success of Smart Dolphins and the business community we serve.

Smart Dolphins offers a very robust, comprehensive solution – going well beyond what our competitors do for their clients. As such, we are not a “cheap” option in the marketplace. Our sales strategy is about selling the value in investing more in IT to drive business results. The impact of great, modern IT is real and large.
