  • Do you have a great attitude?
  • Do you genuinely care about helping people?

If you answered yes to these questions, Event Temple might be a great fit for you.



You will be responsible for prospecting for new business opportunities and play an important role in the overall success of Event Temple.

You thrive on being organized and understand the importance of acting quickly when responding to your prospect requests. You know how to get people excited about Event Temple but also understand the importance of proper qualification.

Bonus points for:

  • Previous experience as an SDR or in cold-calling/sales
  • Experience in a customer-facing role
  • Familiarity working with CRMs
  • Understanding of the Event/Hospitality Industry

Humble, Hungry and Smart

You must be a combination of all-three, the absence of one of these traits does not align with Event Temple’s vision of who we want to be. (If you want to really impress us in the interview, Read The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni before coming in!)
