Position Here are the qualities of the person who leads our Sales department:

Enthusiasm and a positive outlook that is infectious and irrepressible when times get tough.

Emotional intelligence, takes time to build relationships and can move others to action where necessary.

Follows through on the commitments they make and have well-defined personal systems and habits for prioritizing and completing tasks.

Realizes that sales is a team sport, and routinely works across internal departments.

Understands that connecting with a customer and listening is more important than having all the answers.

Discernment. Can separate customers’ needs from their wants and determine how the request aligns with the current product vision before engaging more scarce resources such as product management or engineering.

Proactivity. Understands how to gather and assimilate information to prepare for key interactions.

Domain Expertise. There’s nothing more powerful than communicating best practices derived from personal experience. That’s why we’re looking for a leader who has years of experience selling high-priced services and has written deal-winning proposals. Our customers need your wisdom and advice to manage their sales process better using our software and give them guidance on closing more deals. Because you’re a seasoned sales pro, you’ll also be able to thoughtfully identify upsell and cross-selling opportunities at the right moment in the customer lifecycle.

Trusted Advisor Status. Trusted advisors build trust and confidence of individuals around them by speaking their truth whether the news is good or bad. They gain credibility by backing up assertions with data, and seek to build long-term relationships versus securing quick wins.
