We believe in a world where homes are owned by regular people. Our mission is to provide authentic belonging experiences, empowering residents to become homeowners and homeowners to be financially free.
Belong is changing what it means to rent a home by putting people first. It’s where hospitality meets consumer real estate—and it’s about to redefine an entire industry. We’re backed by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), GGV Capital, Battery Ventures, and Fifth Wall just to name some of our all-star investors.

The Sales Development Representative (SDR) plays a crucial role in the initial stages of the sales process, focusing on lead qualification and engagement. The SDR's primary responsibility is to identify and nurture potential leads, assess their fit with the company's products or services, and transition qualified leads to the sales pipeline.

  • Input lead data, interactions, and updates into Salesforce CRM software.
  • Identify and transition qualified leads to the sales pipeline in Salesforce.
  • Collaborate with homeowners and AE's to schedule follow-up calls, coordinating with AE calendars.
  • Continuously engage leads who have not yet responded or do not meet the initial qualification criteria.

Competencies you need:

  • Be a passionate product expert and explain benefits to homeowners
  • Bias for action
  • Ability to create urgency and win with persistency
  • People skills are key to role
  • Communication ability must be strong
  • Strong sense of sales repertoire for building demand
  • Ability to create a strong sense of urgency
  • Strategic thinking about problems that are “out of the box”

Must haves to be successful:

  • Experience at an entrepreneurial endeavor (in college or similar) or solid passion for sales.
