Mission: MarketStar's mission is to Create Great Experiences. We do it for our empowered employees, our clients, and our client's customers.

MarketStar – Why Work For Us?


What We Do

When our clients release products and services out into the market, they accomplish this through one of two routes-to-market:

  • Partner Channel: businesses that sell solutions to other businesses on behalf of our clients
  • Direct Sales: selling directly to customers – either businesses or individuals

Clients rely on MarketStar to help drive products and services through one of these routes-to-market. We accomplish this via fully-equipped sales and/or marketing teams.

Who We Do Business With

99% of all the work we do on behalf of our clients is directly with a customer or partner. These customers range from individuals to global conglomerates.

Our teams sell products and services directly to businesses, large and small. We enable and train sales teams within partner organizations, and we provide high-end technical support through sales engineers and solutions architects. We also provide sales operations and digital agency services.

We do this as a seamless representative of our clients. We become a part of THEIR team and culture.

How We Do It

Our solution is a combination of people, insight, technology, and methodology. Our people are our most valued resource. What sets us apart from our competitors is how we empower our people and create a superior solution.

Our teams have access to business intelligence and analytics to help you work smarter, and we enable our teams with the most powerful business technologies to help you work faster and more effectively.

  • The nature of our clients and their sales motions dictate that our people have access to business data and analytics. This provides an amazing opportunity for you to learn how to put data and analysis into action.
  • We also offer you opportunities to learn and even certify on technology platforms such as Salesforce.com, Marketo Marketing Automation, and Insidesale.com, a leading sales acceleration tool.

We Have MANY Exciting Clients

We have an exciting and robust roster of clients, and we are hiring for these teams every day. While you may be interviewing for an account management job with a leading manufacturer of IT hardware, we may have another job that is a better fit with one our direct sales teams in the Ad-Tech industry!

Every year, new clients come on board and existing clients expand, providing opportunities to develop skills, grow into new roles and advance up the management chain.

    I have been working at MarketStar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get bored easily, and I've never been bored here. There is always something new, which is the essence of an "agency" type model of outsourced sales teams. There is always a new team getting started, a new client. I've also built of solid list of skills just from the day to day and all the different tasks I've been given. This place is a great starter for a career -- especially when you can work for such huge brands and stay home in Ogden.

    Cons

    Teams come and go. That's the nature of an outsourced agency, clients pack up and leave. It sucks to see it happen, but it happens. The great thing is when clients go away, they try and place the affected reps FIRST. There are always openings, and people almost always get placed.

    Advice to Management

    The family leave (maternity) could be better, but the family dedication is great. Never stop having family be a part of the core values. It's awesome.
