Terabit Systems is an established reseller of new and refurbished IT networking hardware.

We specialize in the sales of leading brands such as Cisco, Brocade, and Juniper Networks, and we’re located right in the center of San Francisco’s Dog Patch district.

We are looking for a college educated (grad or studying), enthusiastic, and driven individual to penetrate strategic accounts and develop new business opportunities.

Your main responsibilities will be to introduce Terabit’s products to target accounts through calling and email campaigns and set-up appointments for senior sales reps.

This is a great opportunity for business students looking for hands-on experience in sales. You will be working closely with two successful sales reps who will provide direction and help you fine tune your strategy.

A background understanding of IT network hardware is ideal, but a dedication to consistent effort and professionalism in sales will be more critical in your success with the team.

This position is part-time (20+ hours/week) in our San Francisco office conveniently located along bus and rail. Favorable compensation package: $20/hour, plus generous bonuses for appointments set and new customer sales.
