About the Account Executive position

We are looking for an Account Executive to expand the Avatour business in the European Union. You’ll be initially our only salesperson in the EU, and directly responsible for the expansion and preservation of our customer base in the region.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of success selling an Enterprise SaaS product, and experience in customer success as well. Avatour employs a "land and expand" strategy, where closing a sale with a given customer is usually only the beginning. The goal for each engagement is to build long-term profitable relationships based on trust and mutual satisfaction.

This role reports directly to the CEO, and it's an ideal opportunity for a mid-career professional to gain increasing responsibilities with a rapidly growing company.

Candidate may be based anywhere within the EU, but France or Germany is strongly preferred.

  • At least 3 years prior sales experience for an Enterprise SaaS company. If you haven't sold Enterprise SaaS before please do NOT apply.

  • Good negotiation skills and overall business acumen

  • Ability to work as a contractor rather than an employee

  • BA/BSc in Business, Marketing or a related field a plus
