Sumdog understands pupils strengths and weaknesses to deliver tailored mastery learning to close knowledge gaps.
The Sumdog team is at the forefront of the data-driven ed-tech revolution and aims to help a million learners by 2020.
The Sales Executive position is an inside sales role. Working closely with the small team, transacting business over the phone and via emails. Your customers will be senior teachers, head teachers and local authority education professionals.
Working with existing clients, converting new leads and upselling renewals, the Sales Executive must have a consultative style with a proactive mindset.
This is a transformational sales approach – not too high pressured, but with a sense of urgency when required.
Cultural fit is extremely important. The Sales Executive will work as part of the team, aiming for team targets but will also be motivated by personal achievement. Territories and strategies may change, so this person must be flexible and enjoy a dynamic environment.
