Sales Director EMEA, SaaS

My client is looking for a on time, all the time, enthusiastic sales manager to join their team as a Director of Sales, EMEA.

The right person for the job

You can quickly comprehend the client’s business needs and demonstrate the value of your software solutions. You are an ace at prospecting: willing to conduct cold calls and mine established contacts to aggressively foster international growth. You enjoy owning the end-to-end sales process, can juggle many sales tasks at the same time, are technically savvy, and are experienced in Salesforce.com. You do more in a day than most people do in a week!

  • Assisting the marketing team to help you best target regional prospects

Who you are:

  • University degree in business, marketing, technology or related field
  • 5+ years’ consultative or value-add sales experience, with a background in closing deals involving recurring services such as customer support, moderation, community management and social engagement

  • Ability to close, manage and grow a number of deals in a given month
  • Skilled, capable and effective at conducting calls and meetings with gatekeepers and decision makers
  • Excellent sales organizational and communications skills
  • Experience working in Salesforce.com, GoToMeeting and similar online and mobile apps
  • Basic Excel formula skills for cost modeling is a must
  • Knowledge of the top social and messaging platforms and customer-service toolsets, and their role in engaging today’s digital customer
  • Ability for occasional travel throughout the UK, Ireland and Western Europe
  • Flexible work schedule allowing for regular interaction with team members and customers in time zones around the world
  • Ability to collaborate and strategize on complex issues with the team
