You will be part of the fastest growing Sales team in EMEA. You will generate new business sales revenue from SaaS subscriptions within the SMB and mid-enterprise account base. This will be achieved through effective territory planning, researching prospect customers, using business development techniques and field-based sales activities within an assigned territory. You will need to build relationships with key partners and alliances and demonstrate mutual value to the partner and their customers/prospects. In addition, you should be comfortable selling a solution and technologies within a SaaS, startup environment to IT contacts at a variety of levels within an organization.
This is an exciting opportunity. Druva customers are fed up with the status quo of managing legacy solutions for backup, recovery, disaster recovery & long term retention. They are engaging with our sales and technical teams to learn how to break out of these legacy constraints and move to a self-service, native cloud solution, 100% SaaS, utilizing opex budgets and aligning to business imperatives such as significant cost reduction and reduced dependencies on operating data centres.
