Level: Individual Contributor
Location: San Francisco or New York
Reports to: Head of Sales


The Sales Development Representative (SDR) will play a critical role as Catch&Release continues to build its sales and marketing engine to support our fast-growing business.

The SDR very often has the initial (and therefore most important) opportunity to make an impression on a prospect, so you will be responsible for ensuring a positive experience that will set the stage for effective sales follow-up. Driving excitement, creativity, and relationship-building into every customer call is crucial. A successful candidate will be a self-starter, with a high-energy, positive phone presence, along with a track record of effective, credible lead follow-up and sales development at multiple levels within an organization. The position’s territory will be the US market.
