Our customers include Google, Skillsoft, Marketo, Oxford University, UKAS, Intel, UC Berkeley, IEEE and 650+ others. To date we’ve delivered over 2.5 million credentials to over 3 million users.

Your role is essential to our success! You’ll be working directly with the VP of Sales to help achieve our ambitious sales targets. You’ll be joining the sales team to help continue the success and growth we have achieved over last 12 months. You will be tasked with pitching, negotiating and closing some of the biggest companies in the world who need support with their credentialing.

You won’t be doing this alone, you’ll be working directly alongside the VP of Sales and 2 other members of the sales team. You’ll have all the support and training that you need to understand our industry and the value our product can provide, as well as a dedicated sales assistant to help you with your pipeline management. We’re looking for someone who can really hit the ground running and isn’t afraid of having targets from the get go.

No cold calling - Unlike other sales roles we’ll be delivering you vetted engaged leads to optimize your output and opportunity for success. You’ll mainly be pitching over video conferencing tools but there will also be the opportunity for international travel for in person meetings and pitches.

No boiler room sales - We take a very consultative approach to our sales. Therefore it’s important for the role that you’re able to deliver insightful pitches based on strategic thinking of the clients needs and goals. You’ll largely be pitching to C-Level so you need to be able to articulate yourself and our products value at an impeccably high standard.

You’ll have a lot of decision making power, autonomy and trust. We make decisions democratically and give team members the time, resource and authority to work on what they think is most important.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fast growing, profitable startup where there are many opportunities to obtain promotions based upon merit, hard work and dedication.
