​​​Cbeyond allows you to take your career further faster with quota-driven promotions for sales representatives.

It’s not about how long you’ve been with the company or who you know to get promoted—our promotions are strictly performance based.

Sales representatives can be promoted into higher level sales positions and/or sales management positions.

There are also corporate positions available sales in our Atlanta office for those that seek to broaden their professional horizon and leap into a non-sales opportunity.

Sales Representatives also receive increases in their base salary with each promotion within their position i.e. promotion from Territory Sales Representative to Territory Sales Representative 2.

Finally, Cbeyond helps you share and grow your skills beyond expertise through a nontraditional avenue. Cbeyond has training for those interested in devoting their time to serving on executive boards of non-profit organizations. Through this skill-based volunteerism, many Cbeyonders have grown their careers and even received cross-departmental promotions.​​​​

"Cbeyond has done a great job creating an effective sales engine for telecommunications services. They are now building a consultative organization for cloud services. I saw a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor and create my own niche within an already established, reputable company."
Evan, Cloud Sales

"I worked for a large cloud hosting company for six years before joining Cbeyond. One of the reasons I came here was the quality of technical support I could offer my customers. As a managed cloud hosting provider, Cbeyond offers a depth technical support that can make a real difference to the small and mid-sized enterprises I talk to every day."
David, Cloud Sales

“Cbeyond is a force; a force comprised of passionate people, forward thinking ideas and swift, yet thoughtful action. This entity has given me the strength and knowledge necessary to not just survive.... but to thrive. I say thrive because that is exactly what this organization aims to do, month in and month out. In a world where mediocrity is inevitable and at times, appreciated, this company goes above and beyond to be anything but average. Whether it's our product offering, our customer service, or our sales people, we are always looking for ways to better Cbeyond. I choose Cbeyond because I choose to be passionate. I choose Cbeyond because I choose to grow. I choose Cbeyond because I choose to thrive.”
Bobby, Direct Sales
