This requires resourcefulness, persuasion, determination, a competitive spirit, and the ability to easily connect with people from all walks of life.

You’ll have a direct impact on the expansion of our business and be recognized & rewarded for your success. We only hire the best, and you’ll need to convince us that you’re a top level performer.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Conduct a high volume of calls and in-person presentations to secure new business and get marketing directors and property managers excited about the ABODO brand
  • Establish meaningful relationships with customers, serving as their original point of contact and ABODO marketing expert
  • Represent the ABODO brand in your active markets and at industry events
  • Prospect, log, and manage opportunities using Salesforce CRM
  • Meet and exceed monthly performance metrics
  • Nurture customer accounts through an on-boarding and sales conversion process

  • Proven success in a former sales role
  • Experience using Salesforce or other CRM preferred
  • A friendly and likable demeanor
  • Strong organizational and time management skills
  • Disciplined, reliable and responsible self-starter that can self-manage 
  • Strong networking skills
  • Possess a high energy and strong desire to achieve top results 


We’re a passionate, 20-member team, that spend most of our time figuring out how to solve the problems renters face when trying to find a new home.

Our passion and dedication has quickly made us one of the fastest growing startups in the state of Wisconsin, with backing from two of the largest Venture Capital firms in the Midwest.

We work out of the original offices of ‘The Onion’ in downtown Madison, a pet-friendly office where meetings, bureaucracy, and hierarchy are abhorred, and building and solving problems are what matter above all else.

When we’re not working, you’ll find us at the Echo Tap across the street (‘Conference Room E’ as it’s known internally), on the volleyball court for our weekly company game, or at Badger sporting events.

Ultimately, what ABODO offers is a dynamic workplace where your work will be vital to helping a venture-backed, rapidly growing startup expand a validated business model to the rest of the country.
