We’re excited to welcome you to the UpKeep family today, Brooke! Tell us a little about yourself!
My name is Brooke Smith and I am so happy to be joining the Sales Organization as the newest Sales Development Representative!
How did you first get into Sales?
About two years ago, I became a Design Consultant for Closet Factory where I was responsible for the full sales procedure; including presentation, production, utilizing AutoCAD to design engineer specific renderings, quote, and contract completion. In March, I joined REVGEN and completed SDR training specializing in IT sales.
Why are you excited to join UpKeep?
The employee reviews on Glassdoor first piqued my interest in UpKeep. The employee and customer satisfaction ratings impressed me. I got along with Tyler, our Recruiter, as well as Drake and Vala on the Sales Team, and have really enjoyed everyone else I’ve met!
What are your first thoughts about the culture and team so far?
I love the company culture so far. Everyone seems to value a hard work ethic, but are also laid back and business casual. It encourages me to reach out if I have questions, and also challenges me to personally grow in my field.
Brooke, you mentioned how you love going to live music events! So we have to know — what was your favorite concert you have been to and who is your favorite musician/band?
Florence and the Machine was amazing, but I also went to Hangout Music Festival a couple years ago where I got to see such a wide variety of live music performances over a few days right on the beach. It was an awesome experience.
Finally, and most importantly, what would you be if you were a kitchen utensil?
I would be a cheese grater because I love cheese.
