Account Executive

Chicago, IL
Did you know that over 30% of fresh produce grown in the world goes to waste and never reaches consumers?

At Hazel Technologies, Inc., we think this waste is unacceptable. We are a USDA-funded startup company that is reducing the huge amounts of waste in our global food supply chain every day. Our work has been featured in TechCrunch, the Chicago Tribune, and Crain’s Chicago Business, and we need your help to expand our impact!

Job Description: 

The account executive position at Hazel Tech, simply put, will involve interaction with warm leads generated by our inbound and outbound teams, as well as interaction on-site with early customers. The benefits of this position you should consider as an applicant are:

  • Get in on the ground floor. You will become one of the first twenty employees at one of the fastest growing startups in ag-tech
  • Create an impact. Solve the problems of tomorrow: new clients you develop relationships with will be saving food everyday that would've gone to waste before
  • Learn what it takes. You will work directly with Hazel Tech executives, co-founders, and advisers every day. Much different than working in an obscure corporate business unit


  • Flawlessly communicate with outbound and inbound sales team members and customers
  • Daily reporting and interaction with Salesforce CRM software
  • Travel to meet with key accounts (expect >50% of time spent in the field)
  • Report to CMO/Business Development department lead
  • Represent Hazel Tech at industry trade shows and any other similar events
  • Involvement in hiring and recruiting process for future sales team members
  • Meet monthly goals and quarterly quotas
