  • Must have access to a computer and smartphone

Here are the answers they gave us to some followup questions:

  • What is the compensation? Starting range is $35-40k
  • Are there any location preferences/requirements? All markets would be considered
  • Would there be travel expectations? This job requires the candidate to be in the market almost exclusively. The only out of market travel would be for regional sales meetings a few times per year
  • Could there be gaps in the job focus while an athlete travels to meets or Europe? This may be very hard to accomplish depending on the time away. Please let me know what this time frame looks like for an applicant athlete
