- Contact each prospect, primarily through placing a call to them, and engage in a dialogue, part of which is to outline the Company’s value proposition.

Sufficient gravitas to be able to engage at C-level.
A consultative sales approach is important.
A reasonable understanding of mainstream technologies at a high level across various industries, e.g. DevOps, AWS and IoT. But experience in specific technologies or software is not required.

Results oriented and money motivated. This is a role for a self-starter who can work with minimal supervision.
Ideally will have worked for a B2B telemarketing company in the technology space, or perhaps a technology recruitment firm, but not essential.
