Sales Help Needed in Nashua/Cambridge/Manchester

"If you're offered a seat on a rocket ship, get on, don't ask what seat.' I tell people in their careers, 'look for growth.' Look for the teams that are growing quickly. Look for the companies that are doing well. Look for a place where you feel that you can have a lot of impact."

------Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt

Yes, we are a rocket ship!!! Experienced or Fresh graduates with a passion to do good, have fun, and make money (in that sequence) are welcome!!

Do you like to make a difference by selling an unique service to local businesses to lower healthcare cost accompanied by improved morale of the employees? 

We are a Nashua/Cambridge/Manchester-based company that uses artificial intelligence to heal employees (or family members) who may be suffering from back-pain, dementia, autism, lyme disease, allergies and so on. Yes, it is magical.

Our software (GetWellAI) uses big data to find effective treatments for specific diseases. For example, if the employees or their families are suffering from back pain, asthma, Lyme disease, Crohn's disease, or another chronic illness, our software can pinpoint treatment options and help improve their health all while maintaining complete privacy for the user. Our software lists holistic remedies in addition to more traditional treatments, and could include anything from an herb that is working in a remote area in China to a cutting-edge, newly discovered drug from Harvard or Genzyme.

However, we are missing you who can do the business development (sales over the phone) for us. 
You can be an expert salesperson in this domain, or a freshman at a college looking 
for some extra cash. We need both experts, and novices to sell our products. You can work from home, or at our office in Nashua/Manchester/Cambridge. 

We will compensate accordingly.
