Job Summary

Reporting to the SVP Sales EMEA & JAPAC, and as a leader in the continued growth of Emplifi in the region, you will lead all aspects of Sales. Combining your prior experience in a pedigree SaaS environment, you will work closely with the leadership team and the existing sales organisation to build and execute a cohesive sales strategy that captures the full market opportunity in the FR & SE region. With a consistent focus on methodology, training and coaching, hiring and metrics, you will evolve the strong foundation in place and push Emplifi to new heights.

Immediately upon joining Emplifi, you will take time to understand current practices and listen to the business’ view on sales. You will integrate with the current team, gradually increasing the growth rate and bringing the team to the headcount and level of capability required to build momentum to fulfil business expectations, with a particular focus on the Enterprise target market throughout the region. It is vital that you invest significant time with all team members to build close relationships at all levels, learning the produce concept and value proposition in detail. With this insight, you will contribute as a member of the management team to determine a coherent growth strategy, a timeline for investment, sales targets, organisational requirements and appropriate performance metrics.

Building on an initial period of success and achievement, you will take the lead in refining the overall Emplifi sales proposition with the leadership team, Marketing and Customer Success functions. You will look to increase the velocity of growth, and attract and integrate increasingly talented and high performing sales resources, alongside continually improving internal resources. This will ultimately help position Emplifi as the clear market leader in the region - with the best customers, product and team, securing a revenue stream that is sustainable and can support ongoing growth.
