Your tasks and activities will include but not be limited by the following:

  • Identify, negotiate, and close new enterprise deals (>$100k ACV).
  • Lead expansion opportunities with existing customers, actively seeking upsell, add-on, and cross-sell opportunities.

  • You are a self-starter with a proven track record of creatively solving sales challenges and exceeding sales targets.
  • You understand video solutions and video encoding technology products so that you can communicate effectively with technical customers. You often hear from your prospects, “It’s so refreshing to talk with a business person who understands what they are selling!”

Working with us, we will provide the following.

  • A front-row seat to the entrepreneurial journey.
  • Learning and growth opportunities in both business skills and leadership skills,
  • An opportunity to work with a highly skilled and motivated team where everyone shares the same goals and functions like a family.
