We’re looking for an Account Executive to join our growing sales team and help put ZenHub into the hands of the world’s most forward thinking technical teams. The role calls for someone with a high degree of familiarity with a land-and-expand motion, and comfort owning the sales process at both the team level and to key decision makers within the wider organization. 

Specifically, you’ll partner with our customer onboarding team to measure and understand the value that ZenHub is creating for teams, and communicate that value to decision makers in a way that builds a case for more widespread adoption. You’ll also work closely with our customer success team to manage renewals and drive account expansion. 

Our team shares a common vision: to help our customers engineer a brighter future. Your work will help shape that future and play a major role in redefining how software teams collaborate.

  • Your work will touch more than 2,500 paying organizations, from the fastest growing startups to the world’s most forward thinking and adapting enterprises. 
  • We’re backed by two of Canada’s most prominent venture firms, BDC Capital and Ripple Ventures, as well as Axiom Zen, an award winning product studio responsible for breakout hits like Dapper LabsCryptoKitties and NBA TopShot.

A little about you - The perfect candidate will bring their own invaluable blend of skills and experience and the flexibility to address a diverse set of challenges. That said, we’re looking for someone that can add value by owning the following areas:
  • Partner with customer onboarding to qualify new mid-market and enterprise leads.
  • Work directly with teams in trial to measure the value that ZenHub is creating.
  • Understand the buying process and identify key decision makers to unlock growth.
  • Craft a compelling narrative to communicate the value to key decision makers.
  • Close new business and own all conversations related to contracts and pricing.
  • Track new leads and opportunities and update the team on progress and blockers.
  • Partner with customer success to build account level forecasts for growth.
  • Manage account renewals and true-up payments.

You’ll be a great fit if you:
  • Have 2+ years experience in a quota carrying role, with a track record of success.
  • Like to experiment and iterate to arrive at the best solution.
  • Are comfortable with a degree of ambiguity and learning as we go.
  • Have a high degree of customer empathy and are naturally curious about customers’ process and workflow.
  • Have a strong desire to become a product expert in both ZenHub and our space.
  • Are a team player and prefer to track your work in an open and transparent way.
  • Value integrity: are accountable to your targets and follow-through on your commitments.
  • Are a clear and engaging communicator.
