You will work closely with various internal Stitch teams, such as sales, marketing, support, product managers, engineering, and our c-suite, to direct our business efforts and build world-class partnerships with our clients.

The key to success here will be your ability to utilise your deep understanding of the Stitch product and the client business environment to create the conditions for new revenue and business value faster. You will be accountable for managing and growing client account value. 

The ideal candidate is an independent, high-achieving individual, able to stand out in an entrepreneurial environment and excel through self-motivation and personal drive. You have exceptional interpersonal skills, naturally, take initiative, and use first-principle thinking to solve problems.
