Account Executive, Outside Sales
Ilir Sela started Slice with the belief that local pizzerias deserve all of the advantages of major franchises without compromising their independence. Starting with his family’s pizzerias, we now empower over tens of thousands of restaurants with the technology, services, and collective power that owners need to better serve their digitally minded customers and build lasting businesses. We’re growing and adding more talent to help fulfill this valuable mission. That’s where you come in.
The Challenge to Solve
Empower local business owners with an incredible in-store ordering experience that offers industry leading pricing and streamlines business operations.
As an Account Executive, Outside Sales, you will be responsible for building relationships with pizzeria owners in your territory, and partnering with them to join Slice and ideally adopt multiple Slice products and services.

You will primarily be traveling around your territory meeting with owners in person, while also spending time on the phone scheduling appointments and increasing touchpoints with owners. This is a high-velocity sales role, with lots of daily touch-points to different shops to hit weekly targets and monthly goals.
Your day-to-day will include managing a pipeline of prospective Slice shops (pizzeria leads) by meeting with them in person and connecting with them over the phone. The Outside Sales team serves as the face of Slice in educating pizzeria owners about best practices and the value of partnering with Slice on our full suite of products to grow their business. Additionally, you will collaborate with the Inside Sales team to share best practices and provide feedback on the Slice Register and other programs by gathering insights, learnings, and requests from restaurants.The role will report to one of the US Sales Managers and work in collaboration with the Head of Global Sales.
