Software Sales Executive | Vancouver

Our client, a large IT Services organization, is looking for a Software Sales Executive to join their team who mission is to drive solutions through to consumption outcomes.

This role is primarily responsible for driving sales of their Microsoft Cloud Solutions across all customers in a defined territory through business outcome selling. This is an exciting role that will help create business opportunities with their customers through Modern Workplace transition.  These opportunities will include both the business value of the Microsoft stack as well as other software ISVs whose products add value to the organization’s Microsoft Solutions.

This is not a company to have your hand held and wait for decisions to be made; Like any culture of entrepreneurship you’ll be managing many aspects of the sales process. Larger processes are automated but you’ll need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty in some aspects of process. You will have a support team and Inside Sales in this role.

The right person for this role knows that activity is the key to success and loves being in front of clients and solving business problems with IT solutions. You may be a bit of a cowboy/girl and you’re not afraid to take risks. People who know you know that you were born to be in sales. You are driven and energetic and your track record demonstrates that you have seen the fruits of hard work in sales. You get a charge when you win and this gives you motivation.

5 years ago our client might have been seen as an underdog. Now they are competing and winning against Tier 1 providers as the result of YoY growth, acquisitions and an outstanding reputation around delivery; Agile and rapid.

If this sounds like you and you have a successful track record in software solutions, please be in touch.
