StrikeIron is a venture-backed provider of cloud-based data quality solutions, celebrating our ninth year.

The second key responsibility of the Sales Analyst will be to execute on highly targeted outbound campaigns. We look to extend our success on customer segmentation to create unique campaigns that are catered to specific industries, customer personas, and use cases for our solution. The Sales Analyst will leverage the tools (scripts, case studies, whitepapers, ROI calculators, etc) to maximize the conversion of prospects into opportunities.

Quantifiable measures that warrant such promotion include opportunities created through outbound campaigns and conversion percentages of inbound leads.
