MarketStar – Why Work For Us?


COMPELLING COMPANY CULTURE

MarketStar’s company culture is unmatched. We offer a supportive, dynamic, and compelling environment that is defined by how we treat our people, our community, and our clients. When Alan Hall founded the company in 1988 he built it on four pillars of spirituality, family, career, and community — caring about every individuals’ personal well-being, their families, their professional development, and the communities in which we live. We are committed to creating an environment of great experiences founded on those pillars.

MarketStar’s internal programs align with our pillars and create a culture of work-life balance, professional, and personal growth valued by our employees. Employees can actively participate and get involved in these programs to enrich their work experience.

  • MarketStar Cares is our community outreach and service program. In 2017 on our annual company-wide Global Day of Service, 685 employees rallied together and provided 1,370 hours of community service in one day. For back to school in 2017 we also collected over 36,000 food items to stock food pantries for underprivileged local schools in our communities.
  • NexGen is an elite training program designed for key contributors who have been identified as high performers with high potential for management. The program graduates approximately 75 participants per year, putting them on path for future leadership considerations.
  • Trailblazer Summit is a quarterly forum where big, impactful, and innovative ideas are exchanged. This program is operated by NexGen graduates with the goal of recognizing and awarding MarketStar’s top Trailblazers for the quarter.
  • Readership provides an opportunity for employees to grow professionally and personally by participating in the free monthly book club. The first Friday of each month, for the first six months of the year, presentations are provided by our leadership where they share their insights into the month’s pick. Principles acquired from the program are utilized at a community level by reading to over 1,000 local elementary-aged children.
  • Orange Talks is MarketStar’s version of TED Talks. It acts as a companionship program to Readership, where it runs the second-half of each year. Themes are guided by the workforce and are taught and delivered by all levels of the organization.
  • MIM is a mentoring program that supports MarketStar’s ElevateHER initiative to elevate the stature of women’s leadership in the organization and in our communities. The program focuses on providing consistent and relevant education, networking, and sponsorship opportunities for our female employees. By empowering and inspiring our workforce, we aim to elevate and build strong female leadership at all levels.
  • RockStar honors our top performers in this quarterly recognition program. 8-12 recipients are awarded with three extra days paid leave and $1000 travel voucher each quarter. 
  • StarPerks is our internal employee perks program. The party and fun starts here with activities, online contests, treats, meals, and family parties!
  • And more!

A client roster with names like Samsung, HPE, Pinterest, and Logi positions our employees to interact and network with major tech giants and their sales leaders. This uniquely sets us apart from all other companies in Northern Utah.

They can advance within their client program, move to a new client team, or move into management positions. Many people also advance into highly-specialized sales architecting and engineering roles at MarketStar. Employees are also positioned to develop relationships and reputations with our clients and are then hired directly by them. Regardless of career direction, MarketStar applauds all our employees’ achievements!

ABOUT MARKETSTAR


The Industry Leader of Sales as a Services

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 their solutions to other businesses—B2B
  • Direct Sales: selling their solutions directly to customers—either businesses or individuals

Our clients rely on MarketStar to help drive their products and services through one of these routes-to-market. Sales as a Service means we provide pre-packaged, fully functioning sales and marketing teams to accomplish this on behalf of our clients. We do this by:

  • Deploying sales teams that augment and expand our clients’ internal teams
  • Providing processes and best practices that our clients currently lack
  • Expanding our clients’ depth and range in existing markets
  • Opening new territories and introducing them into new segments

All of our motions capture incremental revenue for our clients — whether we do it directly or indirectly, we improve their bottom line.


Our History
