  • Identify your prospects' top strategic objectives, paint a picture of what the future can hold and demonstrate how the SocialTalent platform and the people behind it will work with our customers to deliver on that dream

  • You will leverage our sales process to develop new pipeline and manage it through the sales cycle until you have secured new business contracts at which time you pass to our Enterprise Account team and Customer Success team to manage, retain and develop

  • 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
