Chief Sales Officer (CSO) - Scandinavia
Prezentor ApS has developed a new and unique SaaS-based sales presentation platform. We help businesses optimise their presentations, communicate more effectively with customers, and increase their sales.
Every day, we see how our customers use Prezentor to design and deliver world-class sales presentations.
That is why we have made it our mission to offer our product worldwide. With so many businesses standing to benefit from our help, our market is almost unlimited and our potential is enormous.
Our business’ culture is informed by our values and we take pride in the insight, inspiration, and empathy we show our customers.
Founded in 2013, today Prezentor ApS has 17 employees, a professional board of directors, and is successfully following an ambitious growth strategy.
Three great reasons to apply
- You will have full responsibility for Sales, and be able to carve out your own niche in a brand-new role
- You will have countless opportunities to prove yourself as you help to send Prezentor out into the world, and into the boardrooms of many exciting companies.
- You will be part of a friendly, compassionate, and inventive team: one where we help each other out, have fun, and get results—together.
It is your job to reach out to new customers—and show them why Prezentor is the right tool to help them succeed.
Working alongside our CEO, your first task will be to formulate a Sales Strategy. We need you to deliver an effective plan and clear business direction right from the onset.
Your general mission is to work with our team to take Prezentor to the next level.
Sales managers in our potential customers’ businesses are open to hearing about how we can help them to improve their presentations and increase their sales. When they see the value of the product and understand its unique benefits, their interest is piqued.
To begin with, you will focus on reaching out to new customers and closing sales. You will later transition into “playing a coaching role” – by being able to use your prior background and knowledge in Sales and positive attitude to enthuse and motivate the team. In the long term, you’ll help to boost upsell amongst our existing customers, with whom we hope to establish a long-lasting partnership.
Your Sales tasks will primarily be performed online and by phone. Initial customer outreach and further processing will all take place online. You will be speaking to customers from around the globe, all whilst working from our office in Copenhagen. In-person visits will only be required for larger clients, or those requiring face-to-face interaction, however, these definitely do happen, and are a great opportunity for in-person relationship and trust building.
You will report to our CEO, who also comes from a Sales background.
“I am really looking forward to welcoming someone with a strong Sales background on-board for our exciting journey! Our whole team loves helping each all our customers, and seeing just how much of a difference our product makes. Prezentor has a potential the likes of which is rarely seen, and we will need your skills and talent in the busy years ahead.”
