Fuel to our sales machine - the Sales Development Representative (SDR) will be responsible for servicing inbound sales and related inquiries with a focus on engaging and qualifying all prospective customers.

Who we are

We are bold. We challenge the status quo. We take care of each other. We are advocates of having fun hard but working smart. We are Shyft, the pioneer of technology in the moving industry. Our goal is simple, to change the way the world moves.

We are bold. We are ambitious. We make the impossible - possible. We don’t do conventional. We are Shyft. Our goal? To change the way the world moves.

Who are you?

You are empathetic and a good listener. You have excellent communication skills, and a problem solver. You understand that each move is unique and each person/family’s needs are different. Adapt to those differences and help them make informed decisions by being there every step of the way through the booking process.

When you’re all out of options - you improvise your way in. You might not be able to explain it, but you always have an ace of spades down your sleeve - and when you use it it’s always a win-win move.

You can talk the talk. For some puzzling reason, people are magnetically attracted to you. Everyone trusts you without a single ounce of doubt. You are a pure wordsmith, managing to take even the worst possible sounding message and make it into a poem.

You can also walk the walk. Taking on responsibility comes natural - you often find yourself putting more and more on your plate, but then you chewlike crazy until the plate is clean again.

Above all else, you value the journey above the destination. We want to make sure that our customers get on an amazing journey through their experience with us. We do not sell, we educate.


We will not be a good fit for you if: You enjoy a structured, corporate world. You’d rather work alone, and are not transparent. You don’t like dynamic environments. You are too focused on prices less on values. You put yourself above the team - we actually mean it and yes, even in sales. We are here to help each other, so we all prosper.

The nitty-gritty stuff.

If you are still reading this - here’s the deal. You are often the first point of contact so the customer will have lots of questions. To some, you won’t have an answer but know where to go for assistance. Navigate the complex process and understand what assistance they need along the way. The goal is to qualify the best leads and get those leads over to sales as quickly as possible for a video survey.  The best leads tend to be those prospects needing to move their household goods and automobiles to a new city and/or state and need help with coordinating, packing and loading so they can  get to work or start living their new lifestyle as quickly as possible. You will listen to the customers needs and when they are looking for Housing Assistance or Lifestyle options then you will assist the customer by referring them to one of our partners relative to the city and state they are seeking help. You will do this be completing referral forms and sending them to the right partner.

Make sure that they get the best service, and help them see that using Shyft services is the best choice. In other words - make their experience legendary!
