Full Time in Salem, Oregon with Telecommute Available
Relationships with our education members form the foundation of everything we do at OETC. While our membership buys technology through us, we are not a sales organization. We believe we must deeply understand our membership and their needs to serve them effectively, and therefore invest in developing those relationships.
This means the Account Manager role isn’t about carrying a quota, or maximizing sales, but instead about developing customer relationships and knowledge of the industry to help our membership solve their challenging problems with effective technology purchasing and integration. You won’t be asked to maximize margin, or schedule 40 demos a month, but you will need to learn what our members need, and help them achieve their goals with negotiated pricing and an ever-improving knowledge of educational technology.
Account Managers are responsible for all aspects of the purchasing process including industry research, RFQ responses and staying up-to-date on technology and pricing. You will work with the Member Advising team to assist our members throughout the purchasing process. You will solve problems, make sure purchasing deadlines are met, and provide customer support.
What matters most
- Strong attention to detail and accuracy
- Proficiency in customer-facing communications
- Partner with internal departments to assist in strategic plans of engagement
- Experience with B2B purchasing and educational technology is a plus
OETC is a nonprofit, purchasing consortium dedicated to making purchasing technology simple, reliable, and affordable to meet the needs of education. In 1983, a group of innovative Oregon educators founded OETC as a way to manage the purchase of computers and software. Since then, OETC has grown to represent the needs of over 1,000 schools, districts, universities, and libraries across the country. We now manage $50 million in sales with a nearly $2 million budget. OETC harnesses our memberships’ collective purchasing power to organize cooperative purchases through competitive bidding processes.
About Our Benefits
We pay a competitive base salary, offer up to a 10% annual bonus, and include fantastic benefits. We handle all of our training and employee onboarding at our office in downtown Salem. After your training is complete you are welcome to work there everyday, but we also offer telecommute options for those living in Portland or other outlying metro areas to help avoid commutes.
