  • You must have experience selling SAAS solutions with the recurring revenue element at least 60-70% of the total deal value.
  • You will be able to "show us" the scars inherent in Enterprise SAAS sales, having learned the importance of selling to a buying team, being patient and demonstrating real value to large organisations.
