Survata is looking for a top-producing Publisher Enterprise Account Executive who can significantly grow our publisher base in the New York area.

  • You thrive at managing a multiple month sales cycle (initial prospect to close) and setting those publishers up for repeat business
  • You’ll be responsible to seed, grow, and harvest each publisher relationship, following a land and expand model
  • You are a hunter/farmer who forges “top of mind,” long-term relationships that grow over time
  • You will invest the time to truly understand the publisher and the publisher client needs, and then you will communicate precisely to our internal teams on how we can best serve them   

What we're looking for

  • Experience working with the largest national/global publishers who sell to blue-chip brands and their agencies, and a deep understanding of how to engage multiple publisher teams and partners to get deals done

  • You are motivated by big growth targets and big, uncapped, commissions
  • You value quality of work over quantity, and strategy is an integral part of your sales cycle. Hustle is in your DNA.
  • You are thoughtful & introspective about your sales approach; it bothers you when people don’t consider sales an intellectual pursuit
  • You understand the value of networking. Opportunities exist everywhere, and you look to add value to those in your network as you build it.  
  • At the end of the day, your goal is to provide the best and most informed customer experience, close your deals and drive in revenue

  • You are able to navigate an enterprise sales cycle and have the ability to appeal to executive decisions makers (Senior Directors, VPs, C-Suite)
  • You have the ability to pitch Survata, act as a domain expert (get technical when needed!) and effectively manage the procurement to close process.
  • The startup world is not foreign to you.  You know how to sell a product without a huge name behind you more importantly you understand and appreciate how processes can be ever-changing and ambiguity can be the norm.  You are a self-starter, can find answers yourself, and don’t always need someone to show you what to do next.
  • You are on a constant hunt to deepen your knowledge and enjoy collaborating cross functionally to create best of breed solutions for our customers. This is an individual contributor role, but you value teamwork.
