There are a handful of SaaS sales teams in the world that are known to be “world class.” These teams earn their claim to fame through an outbound sales motion, extremely high EQ sales reps with industry expertise, and an undeniable “energy” on the floor. And we have the chance to build a world class team of sales thought leaders while changing the world of compensation at Pave.
