Position Overview

We're looking for an Account Executive to own the entire sales process from prospecting to close, although this job will be primarily outbound oriented. You'll gain exposure to different parts of the business, get a say in developing processes, and overall have a more entrepreneurial experience here than at larger companies.

This role is also responsible for building and executing multi-channel outbound campaigns with cross teams to identify buyer needs and intent, and engage with buyer interest/decision-makers and closing deals

Our primary customer type is small and medium-sized freight forwarders. There are some details that the sales team must master in order to be perceived as credible experts and trusted advisors. Also, the Company is moving upmarket. As such, we are looking for a well-rounded AE who is able to diagnose and recommend the right processes and training programs for the applicable market segment.

This role reports directly to the Head of Sales and will be a key member of the sales organization.

This job will require you to be flexible in working during U.S. working hours as you'll mainly be handling American and Canadian customers/markets. However, this position can also be a 100% work-from-home remote setting so you'll enjoy complete flexibility and freedom and your shift may also be adjusted according to business needs and your personal preference as the team continues to grow.

Employee Benefits

Fully Work-From-Home remote flexibility, Paid holidays, unlimited vacation/sick time, paid parental leave, and affordable health insurance options. We value work-life harmony and believe family and mental health should always come first.
