Job Description

My client is a very well-funded, game-changing vendor in the Big Data space. Headquartered in California, they have enjoyed incredible success in the US, and are now looking for their first UK salesperson to replicate this in EMEA. With their unique and transformative technology, my client brings the absolute pinnacle of Big Data technology to the marketplace. Salespeople in the US are earning half a million dollars a year; this is an incredible earning opportunity.

You will be the first boots on the ground for this company in the UK and as such, you will need to work independently and manage an entire sales cycle yourself, from prospecting to close. You will be selling the vendors' game-changing Big Data technology, targeting clients from mid-market up the largest global enterprises. This is a pure sales role, this is not a leadership position - be under no illusions, you will have to 'smile and dial'.
