Jobs - Tech Sales Work at EmperorLinux: the most fun you can have with ...

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 communication.

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 trade shows.

Please forward your resume, 3 references, and a cover letter (.ps or .pdf preferred) telling us of your experiences using Linux.
