EmperorLinux is currently seeking Technical Sales Consultants.
EmperorLinux is well known for installing and supporting the end-users'
choice of Linux distribution onto quality laptop and notebook computers.
Sales positions require user-level familiarity with at least one Linux
distro, preferably Fedora Core or Red Hat. Our
customers tend to be very tech savvy, both about Linux and PCs in general, and
to ask specific technical questions about the machine and its interaction with
Linux before they decide to make a purchase. Successful candidates will be
able to clearly explain the value added by EmperorLinux.
Successful candidates will understand:
- the reasons to use Linux
- how a dual-boot system works
- the level of work required to configure Linux
- system specifications and choices
- Linux distribution "specs" and choices
They will be able to clearly communicate these concepts via written and spoken
Excellent interpersonal skills are required, as the Technical Sales
Consultant is typically the first and primary contact the customer will
interact with. Both phone and email communication are heavily utilized. Your
job is to understand the needs of the customer as they relate to the
integration of the Linux OS with the laptop hardware and to translate those
needs into the right laptop with the best Linux distro for that user.
This position is in our Atlanta offices, and no relocation package is
available. Therefore, local applicants are encouraged.
There is an opportunity for business travel 1-2 times per year at Linux
Please forward your resume, 3
references, and a cover letter (.ps or .pdf preferred) telling us of your
experiences using Linux.
