JOB SUMMARY:

This is not your typical software sales job and we are not looking for the typical sales executive.  If you are a technical expert that leads with product features, bits and bytes; this is likely not a fit for you.  Conversely, you may be a great fit if you lead with an understanding of customer challenges and business issues, thrive on teaching prospective customers your unique perspective, and you're comfortable creating constructive tension and taking control of the sale. At Fonteva, we are ambitious, intellectually curious people who love to learn, want to challenge the status quo and help to transform an industry. You’ll find that our culture supports and rewards learning, entrepreneurial spirit, innovation and collaboration. We are looking for like-minded people who share our passion for success.

As a Sales Executive, you are responsible for identifying and building new business, while also acting as an evangelist of Fonteva’s products and the Salesforce.com platform.  You help customers solve business problems in more effective and efficient ways of utilizing Fonteva products. You will develop a pipeline through outbound calls and follow-up on MQLs, teaching prospect’s how Fonteva delivers differentiated value, tailoring value propositions, nurturing relationships and closing new business.  

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • In collaboration with managers, Inside Sales and Marketing, design and implement sales campaigns/strategies to ensure you achieve quota and the company meets objectives.
  • Research prospective customers to identify the right new business opportunities within assigned territories and drive to closure.
  • Develop and execute territory and account plans to build an appropriate pipeline, including customer calls, continuous follow-up, and relationship-building.
  • Engage in sales dialogue, deliver sales presentations and overview software demonstrations; and facilitate technical demos with the support of Sales Engineers.
  • Use business knowledge, company training, and consultative selling skills to teach customers insight about their business which links back to Fonteva’s solutions.
  • Take control of the sales process and artfully coach prospective customers to build consensus for Fonteva’s solutions in their organization. Assertive, but not aggressive, on everything from what you teach to negotiating price.
  • Collaboratively work with your manager and technical sales to create a deal level strategy to win new business.
  • Regularly update CRM and other systems with real-time information, and use prospect intelligence for sales planning and forecasting
  • Actively seek to understand where the buyer is in their ‘buyer-journey,’ and accurately forecast new business, regularly.
