Platypi is looking for a future VP of Sales
The Sales Position
Are you interested in making $60,000 – $70,000 a year in commissions and bonuses? How about having a flexible work schedule? Do you love the freedom of working for a business with a virtual team rather than a bricks and mortar business?
We’re offering you the opportunity to work and grow with Platypi Designs. Our vision is that you take control over your financial destiny by meeting, or better yet, exceeding our given sales quotas and making the most of our attractive commission package and bonus structure.
Initially this is a commission only sales position. The commission rate to start is 20% on each website package sold which averages $1100 commission per sale. Selling our add-on services will also earn you quarterly bonuses.
Platypi is excited about the future as we start to launch our growth strategy plan. Our hope is that over time you will be earning over 6 figures for your efforts in building, motivating and supporting a well performing sales team.
