Key Account Executive
Our Key Sales team focuses on selling to the strategic segment of customers with a combination of assigned accounts as well as assigned territory. Assigned territory will consist of a combination of geographic region and focus industries. Our key customer segments represent companies of strategic significance to the industry, with sizable annual revenue and employee base.
As a Key Account Executive, this individual must be a self-motivated closer who can create a large pipeline of business within a short period of time while also developing large, strategic new logo opportunities. This revenue-driver should have relevant experience in SaaS sales, selling to large, complex accounts. The ideal candidate should have a proven track record of continuous quota-overachievement.
We look for strategic, consultative, business athletes who are aggressive team players – hungry, nimble, intelligent and driven – with the ability and desire to close a mix of complex deals. We are looking consultative AEs that understand marketing and what marketing executives are facing as their business digitally transforms during these ever-changing times. We want AEs that can have value add conversations at the CMO level.
