Description

NextRequest makes public records requests friendlier for the public and easier for governments. We are motivated by civic transparency and government ingenuity. Our mission is to revolutionize records requests through technology, trust, and community.

Over the past 6 years, our team has built an amazing product that allows governments to be both more transparent and efficient while serving their communities. NextRequest works with nearly 200 customers across the U.S. ranging from the largest cities to small towns, police departments, counties, state agencies, educational institutions, and special districts. The agencies of all types and sizes use NextRequest to accept, coordinate, and fulfill record requests all in one place. The company's public records software works cross-departmentally to streamline requests so that no request goes unanswered. NextRequest protects the flow of agency’s sensitive information with best-in-class security, compliance, and data protection for its customers including mapping to CJIS & HIPAA Security Rule controls and a SOC 2 security audit.

Small but mighty team of five that is proudly female lead. The team is across the country (all remote) and may have grown with the company into new and exciting roles.

We're looking for someone who can help us grow by generating awareness and engagement with NextRequest’s software. You’ll do initial outreach to prospective customers, gauge interest, set up trial accounts for prospects, and follow up to ensure they have a great first experience with our company. You should be as comfortable picking up the phone to make 50 calls in a day as you are spending a few minutes getting a single user completely comfortable testing the application. You will be the first person from NextRequest people talk with and will create their initial impression of our product and brand. 

This is a great opportunity for someone who loves talking with people and can clearly explain how things work and their benefits. If you want to support a team that helps the government be more efficient and transparent on a large scale this is the job for you!
