Uvaro provides every recruit who enrolls with a world-class sales education to help them succeed in the career of their dreams. Our ecosystem has successfully provided them with the skills, knowledge, and career support they need to get there. But a job board also helps them pursue their dreams and ambitions independently while providing opportunities for career growth for sales talent that is already thriving outside of our network.
Basically, it works like this: Uvaro programmatically searches the web for open job roles, then filters the results down to only the most promising opportunities in B2B tech sales. Then we deliver them in one easy-to-access place.
In short, we do the hard work of searching, so that our recruits can focus their energy on landing the job.
When we posted this blog, we counted more than 625,000 sales opportunities from companies across North America. That’s a lot of jobs! But it’s easy to pinpoint exactly the right roles for our recruits by filtering for location and for the types of jobs that match their strengths and interests the most:
- Searching by location allows them to hone in on a specific city or region, or even opt for remote options, as sales jobs are depending less and less on in-person and in-office work. (Fun fact: Our sales training program teaches sales reps the soft and hard skills they need to flourish in remote environments!)
- Hunting by job type allows them to choose only the opportunities that they’re interested in. After all, sales is hardly a single career path – there are lots of areas to focus on, from customer success and sales development to leadership and sales engineering.
The Uvaro Sales Job Board is a prime example of a tool that’s elegantly built to serve a specific purpose with a “less is more” attitude characteristic of the tech we build. It does exactly what it means to do without inundating its users with added features or fluff. And like all the other tools in our ecosystem, it’s really good at delivering the value it promises, if we do say so ourselves.
Homemade like grandma’s cooking
There’s a lot to love about our new sales job board. But what really gets us excited is the way it embodies Uvaro’s approach to technology.
Here’s a peek behind the curtain: Everything that SaaS sales reps do is dependent on technology, from classroom to career. Our recruits’ success, and by extension, ours, relies on their tech ecosystem’s ability to deliver exactly what they need. Nothing less.
This is why we choose, over and over again, to create our own technology ecosystem rather than purchasing and rolling out third-party tools.
Not only does creating our own tools give us the power to support our own growth in a way that suits our recruits, our team, and our processes, but it also gives us more freedom to do so at our own pace and price. We aren’t beholden to someone else’s release schedule when we need a new feature, nor are we subject to perpetual (and perpetually increasing) costs as those features get added and our business grows.
You’ll see this philosophy hard at work across our homegrown tech stack, which already includes two other internal tools built by our experienced in-house development team:
- Our internal administration tool is a technology cornerstone that our internal teams use to keep recruit information all in one place, from status, attendance, payments, and assignments, across every cohort we run. Instructors use it when they’re creating and tailoring assignments for their classes. We even use it as a custom career coaching portal. Our employer partners benefit from it, too, with custom employer profiles that make it easier to match with the best candidates for the job – all within one system. As a two-sided marketplace, this is the type of customer enablement that can only be done when you think like a tech company.
- Our homework portal is a dedicated hub for all assignments, making it an integral part of our recruits’ experience. This is where they find information, from assignment details to deadlines, engage with their instructors and submit their work when they’re done. It connects with our internal administration tools in the background, giving instructors access to every submission and detail. The best part? It does nothing else. Recruits come in, submit their work, and walk away. No-fuss, no muss.
The Uvaro Sales Job Board joins this ecosystem, closing the loop from application to post-graduation by supporting our grads as they find a job where they can put their new knowledge and skills to good use. And because it’s so tightly connected with our other tools, recruits continue receiving the same level of support all the way through without ever leaving the Uvaro ecosystem. In short, our tech enablement is felt from first contact through the entire experience.
Sharpening the tech-enabled edge
We won’t lie – it’s a lot of work to build our own tools in-house. But we think it’s worth it, especially in an era where experiences and first impressions mean so much. How much? Globally, 32 percent of customers say they would stop doing business with a brand they loved after just one bad experience.
So the stakes are high to get things right the first time, every time.
Positioning ourselves as a tech-enabled services company (rather than strictly as a services company) is actually a critical part of our growth and the growth of those we serve:
It helps build a great community:
At our core, Uvaro is about connection. Recruits learn along with (and from) each other. They engage with expert instructors and career coaches. They receive support from our internal teams. Every piece of technology we create enables those connections in a more intuitive and meaningful manner.
It ensures a consistent user experience across the board:
Creating one ecosystem means we don’t give our recruits, instructors or staff UX whiplash – that moment when you’re taken from one tool to a completely different tool that looks and operates differently. Keeping it consistent keeps people engaged without pulling them out of their experience with us by a patchwork of third-party integrations.
It improves the way we support our customers and our teams:
When everything’s in one place, you don’t have far to look… or long to wait. Through our ecosystem, recruits can self-serve when it comes to their assignments. Or, if they reach out to us or their instructors, we have their information right at our fingertips. All because everything’s so neatly connected on the back-end.
It proves we’re in it for the long haul:
Our tech ecosystem is both an investment and a commitment. We’re not looking for quick wins here – if we were, we’d simply find the cheapest, out-of-the-box solution for every need. Instead, we’d rather pour our energy and our resources into tools that’ll stand the test of time and continue our success into the future.
This is why we take the time and energy to make purpose-driven, custom-fit technology a priority in our company. Strategic initiatives like the Uvaro Sales Job Board and the technology ecosystem it connects to genuinely make jobs easier – and lives better – for everyone we impact.
There’s always room to grow
With all that said, we aren’t done yet.
If the services we offer are just the tip of the iceberg of who Uvaro is as a company, then the tools we’ve built today are just the tip of the iceberg of what’s next. As we continue to grow, so too will we continue to improve the experiences of our recruits, staff, instructors, and partners through the continued refinement of our existing tools and the development of new ones as different needs arise.
Our tech ecosystem is living proof that this kind of technology-driven approach isn’t just for tech companies anymore. It’s for all companies looking to put experience first, for internal or external stakeholders alike.
We can’t wait to share what we create next. In the meantime, make sure to check out our Sales Job Board for a taste of what’s to come.
