As Affinity and the sales team continue to expand and grow, we are looking for an additional Sales Manager to catapult our growth into other verticals and manage our top-performing AE’s. Reporting to the VP of Sales, you will have a seasoned sales team built that you will help accelerate while you define and fine-tune what relationship intelligence solutions can do for the modern enterprise.

What you’ll be doing:

  • You will lead and coach a team of high-performing sales reps in a high-volume, outbound, and inbound lead generation environment.
  • Ensure AE’s are effectively managing and closing accounts according to their quota
  • You will be responsible for hiring more reps to expand the team, assisting in sales planning, while working closely with the VP of Sales in creating the playbook to advance the sales organization to the next level.
  • You will be collaborating with Sales reps, fellow Sales Managers, Solutions Engineers, Marketing, and Customer Success.


Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every qualification. At Affinity, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t perfectly align with the qualifications above, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
