About this role:

The Ottawa sales team is trying something different. We don’t currently have an open role for our Apply Account Executive team, but we want to build a pipeline of amazing candidates. The interview process for this position will be a little different, too. If your experience matches what we are looking for, our recruiting team will book a phone interview. If that goes well, we will have you speak with the hiring manager. From there, we will keep you updated on life at SurveyMonkey and what our company is up to. Once a position opens up, you’ll be first in line to come onsite to have your final interview. To make sure we’re talking to the right people, please address your cover letter to Goldie.
