As our Territory Sales Representative (we call it TSR for short), for Texas, you’ll be the human that will maintain and grow existing accounts, and prospect and close new accounts within the territory.

Ever looked at a job title and 100% knew exactly what would be involved day to day?

  • Increase sales and distribution throughout the territory
  • Pursue and onboard new operators by nurturing relationships, understanding operator pain points, and demonstrating the value of the Minor Figures brand
  • Conduct regular visits and develop strong relationships with existing operators and accounts to retain and grow the business, with a “1% better” focus on each visit
  • Develop relationships with local distributor-partners that lead to increased sales
  • Identify prospective customers, and track opportunities and pipeline within the Minor Figures CRM
  • In collaboration with Minor Figures sales leadership team, onboard, train and grow sales with new distributors

  • Participate in regular internal team calls, sharing best practices, feedback on competitors, and market intel
  • Collaborate with leadership on individual quarterly goals that are challenging yet attainable
  • Represent Minor Figures in a professional, authentic manner
