As our new Account Manager, your role is to build your own partner portfolio, oversee and manage your portfolio, nurture relationships with partners, develop new business and actively seek new sales opportunities.

You’ll be responsible for the entire sales cycle – from generating leads through cold calling to build your account portfolio, executing online product demonstrations, to closing sales, as well as enhancing and strengthening partner relationships. The role requires personal drive, a passion for sales, a willingness to grow with our company and you should be able to grow our business in Norway by building and maintaining strategic partnerships.

  • Suggest actions to improve sales performance and identify opportunities for growth

Requirements

As our Account Manager, you should have excellent communication and negotiation skills and be highly customer service oriented. You go the extra mile to drive sales and you know how to meet ambitious individual sales quotas. We offer an uncapped commission scheme - so going the extra mile will be rewarded.
