At Knotel we believe a company’s space should enable their growth. We exist to give companies the freedom to flex without being bound by their real estate, and the Account Executive contributes directly to evangelizing the value we bring to our customers in the EU Expansion markets.
Reporting directly to the market Head of Sales, the Account Executive will own a book of business of prospective Knotel customers. They will be responsible for building and maintaining local relationships with the goal of onboarding new companies onto Knotel’s flexible workspace platform. Managing a full end to end sales cycle, the Account Executive will be the main point of contact from opportunity creation and office tours to deal close, initial payment collection and the move-in process.
