Inside Sales Specialist

Boston, MA

Want to revolutionize hiring?

Happie is where companies find the best talent, fast.  We replace time-consuming and ineffective candidate sourcing technique with algorithmic matching, human subject-matter experts and one-click engagement. 

We are a quickly growing team of sales pros, marketers, computer geeks, math nerds, and entrepreneurs going after a huge market by creating a company built on flawless design, advanced data science and an incredible customer and talent experience. We believe that if we fundamentally re-engineered hiring it would look and feel completely different than it does today for both sides of the hiring equation. That’s what we’re here to do.

You should be excited about innovating in an archaic industry while greatly enjoying Happie hours, team lunches, and lots of hilarious interactions between team members.

We are seeking an Inside Sales Specialist (ISA) to join our quickly growing team in Boston. The ISA will play a pivotal part in helping us achieve our vision for a massive online speed-recruiting platform. This is a great opportunity to join our rapidly scaling sales team and position yourself for quick career growth.   


Happie is growing at double-digit rates each month. The sales team is a huge part of the success we’ve built so far. To keep up with the constant stream of leads and opportunities coming in and to achieve our broader mission and vision, we’re adding more high-performance reps to the team. When you join this team you’ll have a meaningful impact on Happie’s success (and you’ll have a lot of fun doing it). 


Sales reps at Happie have huge career growth opportunities.  Our sales team is at the cusp of significant team growth – tripling in the next few months and growing rapidly from there. By joining now, you have an opportunity to help set the tone early and participate in each stage of growth and development as we grow. You can hone and perfect your sales game and also move into team lead and sales manager roles.

Connie has hired, coached, and mentored over 1,000 people in her career and has helped many people become successful sales reps, managers, and leaders.
