Hi all - I'm a current owner / operator of a 6 year old business. My co-founder and I have been in the process of fully delegating our responsibilities and step away from the day to day. At this stage, our primary outstanding responsibility is related to sales and growth, so we're looking for a sales orientated hire to manage our inbound deal funnel (our primary source of revenue) and lead some new outbound growth initiatives. We're looking for someone who can be mostly autonomous.

Any guidance on what to look for when hiring for this role? Tips around compensation (base compensation vs. commission), seniority level to search for, where to search, and anything else would be greatly appreciated!
