Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: Anywhere in Europe

Category: Marketing / Sales


As our first sales hire, you will drive our company growth by spending most of your time interacting with people interested in TalkJS. You'll help them understand how our solution can solve their problem and add value to their business.


Demand for TalkJS is quickly increasing to the point that we have more leads than we can manage. This means that now is the time to double down on sales, so we're looking to make our first dedicated sales hire. Our customers are entrepreneurs, product managers and engineers who ask technical questions. This means that some experience with software/SaaS products is required.


You're able to quickly build mutual trust, you're great in (video) calls, and you never let a lead out of your sight. You bring both qualitative and quantitative experience to the sales process. You love software products and you'd love to work with product people all day (both from TalkJS and from our customers).


You'll work closely with the founders to:


Identify high-potential businesses and verticals and bringing them to TalkJS

Structure the sales pipeline and doing effective followups

Have calls and demos with mostly larger Enterprise prospects

Structure deals and making quotes

Strategically and iteratively improve the sales and marketing processes

We're looking for someone who:


Has demonstrable experience selling technology to businesses

Is able to understand TalkJS's software and build great relationships with highly technical customers

Is a digital product geek

Wants to jump on a rocket ship that's just taking off

We provide:


An open, constructive, and no-bullshit working culture

An opportunity to join a startup just as it's about to explode

The chance to build and lead a sales team from scratch and drive our sales culture as we grow

Significant stock options

Flexible working hours

Apply


Please reach out to our founders at [email protected]m. Include a sample cold outreach email to a TalkJS prospect of your choice.
