Responsibilities

 

Every day, in nearly 100 countries around the world, millions of people depend on Daktronics scoring and display systems for information and entertainment. Our displays provide vital travel information in airports and train stations and along highways. They advertise the price of gas, store specials, and more as you make your daily commute. They also enhance spectators’ experiences at sporting events of all kinds, from Little League to the major leagues.

 

This position is located in our High School Parks and Recreation (HSPR) Business Unit. HSPR customers include schools, junior and community colleges, sports facilities and community recreation organizations. As training progresses, you may also have the opportunity to work with products and customers in our reseller market which includes use in a variety of business applications.

  

The HSPR Sales Coordinator group works as part of the sales team and is involved in promoting Daktronics products throughout the United States and Canada. Primary responsibilities include assisting the field sales staff with promoting and presenting Daktronics product options, taking inbound customer calls, providing timely and accurate responses to request for proposals (RFPs) and following up with customers and field staff on orders.

 

  • You will be assigned to support a specific sales region, where you are a member of a sales team. You will work with sales representatives who are based remotely and work with customers in their region’s geography. You'll be expected to develop relationships and act with the customer in mind while following Daktronics practices.
  • The atmosphere is very team oriented and friendly. You will build relationships with the different groups that you interact with inside Daktronics.
  • The information you need to complete a quote or order request will be provided to you, but sometimes you may need to ask follow up questions to clarify information before you can proceed. There are procedures established for the tasks, which are important to follow in order to complete accurate work.
  • Much of the work is sales focused and is done through email and phone communication. You must be courteous and professional in these interactions.
  • There will be some administrative tasks related to entry into our various systems and databases. The overall processes for these tasks may be repetitive, but since each task is different, accuracy and attention to detail is very important. 
  • The coordinator group is primarily based in the corporate office in Brookings, but some staff members work in remote locations across the U.S. You'll need to work together as a team to complete the day’s priorities and deadlines. You'll need to be a team player, gain trust and support the team, which can include a variety of positions (sales, support, applications engineering, project managers, and manufacturing), across a variety of departments.
  • Most of your day will be spent working on your computer at your desk with the rest of your team.
  • The hours of the position are regular full time day time hours, with some flexibility for when you would like to begin and end your work day. Hours vary based on the location of the region you are working with.
