The person we are looking for must be a proven winner and must be an absolute gun in independently generating and managing the end-to-end pipeline for key deals to bring in new revenue.

+ Collaborate with the Head of Marketing role or similar to drive growth in revenue

+ Build and refine the sales playbook, process and operations to maximise the efficiency of sales


The ideal candidate would exhibit the following:

+ Experience selling software to prospects where the problem is only identified through a discovery process

+ Strong experience in solution selling methodology

+ Proven track record of delivering consistently to target on recurring revenue through field sales

+ Strong written and verbal communication skills in English

+ Able to work in an environment that is low in resource and is still maturing in its sales process and support
