  • What’s in it for you?

    The Account Executive builds, identifies and closes opportunities for Salesforce Customer 360 for customers sized between 1-200 FTE.

You will be passionate about our customer accounts, partnering with other Salesforce Account Executives to drive new sales across all of your accounts.

    You will do this by:

    • Developing opportunities through your new business development skills
    • Advising customers on the Salesforce Platform and promoting solutions to help them achieve their business goals
    • Working with the support team and engaging appropriate resources to lead the end to end sales process
    • Using your solution selling expertise to uncover customer challenges and to increase revenue by using Salesforce technology to solve customer problems

    • You are resilient and have a high EQ. We have a fast paced team with multiple collaborators so being able to keep a calm approach is key.
    • Embody a growth mindset. You’re thinking ahead and have a plan for yourself. Avid learners wanted.
    • You're able to craft a point of view, hold an opinion, and build credibility as a 'Trusted Adviser' with your customers
    • Self awareness is very important, and you must understand your ‘why’. You’re naturally curious and passionate about the chance to absorb all Salesforce has to offer
