Construction Sales Specialist

Promote a Premier Brand to Top Contractors in a High-Potential Territory

Make an impact by generating interest in Makita tools and pushing sales to our distributor network.

If you are at home on construction sites, comfortable working with construction leaders and personnel, and have a high-energy, driven approach to success, the role of Construction Sales Specialist could be your perfect fit. You will generate interest in Makita tools by visiting job sites, generating interest with end users, presenting to decision makers and driving sales to our distributor partners. You will enjoy:
  • Taking ownership of the construction market in a role focused on end-user conversions. This is a unique sales role -- only the second of its kind at Makita U.S.A. -- where you can make an impact and shine.
  • Gaining visibility serving as the first Construction Sales Specialist in this area.
  • Working a prime territory -- an established market with ample room for growth.
  • Representing a recognized and respected brand and best-in-class construction tools, products, and applications.
  • Developing and executing a strategic plan to help build business throughout Salt Lake City and the surrounding area.
  • Partnering with a talented and seasoned sales professional who works with distributors as you work with end users.
  • Working from your home office in the Salt Lake City area and spending a good deal of your time out in the field -- we'll provide a company truck, gas card and expenses.
While you can find rewards and success in this territory for years to come, you might also leverage your performance to pursue other career paths within Makita U.S.A.

The ideal candidate for the Construction Sales Specialist role will have deep understanding of construction job sites and the construction market combined with self-discipline, solution-based sales skills and experience, and the drive and self-motivation to get out in the field daily.  At a minimum you should have:
  • 5+ years of experience in the construction industry
  • 2-3 years of outside sales experience, ideally in construction
  • A bachelor's degree from 4-year college or university is preferred but not required
  • Deep understanding of the contractor trade within the Salt Lake City market; knowledge of all phases of construction 
  • Strong knowledge of tool applications
