For success in this role, you must have a willingness to learn the sales process and excellent interpersonal skills. Previous experience in sales is an advantage, but not required.

As the only agile registration platform, Captyn is helping small businesses reduce management costs and stress while increasing revenue. Once an organization sees Captyn in action, they are amazed by how easy managing and accepting customers can be. In short, we help small businesses grow!
Who We Are Looking For:
People who have an additional 5-20 hours a week to develop connections and earn extra revenue for their household are excellent candidates.

Your responsibility is to call or walk into a business you’re familiar with and speak to them about Captyn. The Captyn leadership team equips you to explain the Captyn platform through online demonstrations, and we provide digital and print material that will help spark interest. Finally, once a business is interested in learning more, you go through a simple online presentation with the support of the Captyn leadership team.
