Account Executive - Inside Sales

Montreal, Quebec, CA

Requisition Number: 91700 

Account Executive – Inside Sales



We’re a $6 billion Fortune 500 Company on a mission to locate and train only the best Inside Sales Reps.  But what does “BEST” mean?

 At Insight, we think the best teammates come with high standards. You truly care about integrity, about achieving and about being rewarded for your abilities.


If you have a college degree, we’re impressed! BUT, we also realize that school just isn’t for everyone. We’ve got loads of really successful people here who didn’t finish college, but instead opted to start working in the real world. They’re doing great work, making great money, and having a great time doing it.


This is your opportunity to launch a sales career. As a Representative in Inside Sales, you’ll get to help your clients find answers for their current and future technology needs. You don’t need IT experience—if you’re a fit, we’ll teach you what you need to know through our comprehensive paid training.  


As part of our team, we’ll teach you to build relationships with clients over the phone, and how to put together Intelligent Technology Solutions™ from the broadest selection of hardware, software, peripherals and services in the industry— Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, Dell, HP, and more.


This is a high-energy, open environment with a business casual dress code where you’ll see a lot of your teammates—which is great because we make a point of hiring people who will really enjoy working together! Around here, we’re into diversity and creativity, not the cookie-cutter corporate attitude.


It’s a fantastic time to join our Inside Sales team at Insight.
