Reports to: Manager of CRE Sales

Location: San Francisco, CA


Carbon Lighthouse is looking for a proven, adaptable sales professional to continue building our momentum in San Francisco and the broader West Coast real estate market.

The successful Executive Account Manager (EAM) will pursue ambitious bookings goals, grow our brand, and make our service offering better by applying lessons learned from the field back to the company.

In addition to the focus on strategic sales and business development, the ideal candidate will leverage their commitment to our environmental mission, curiosity, persistence, and adaptability to fulfill critical organization building responsibilities like defining our local market strategy. The initial career path will be focused on developing and executing sales of financially attractive operational savings for commercial real estate clients with an environmental impact with subsequent opportunities for growth and specialization as our company expands.

The role may be filled in a remote capacity, however many clients will be based out of San Francisco Bay Area, CA and we expect traveling locally and regionally to resume on a regular basis when in-person meetings return to being the industry norm. The EAM will work on continuous improvement through ongoing coaching and sales support from their San Francisco Bay Area based manager and sales executives.
