About the job

You have sold sports related tech for a year or so now.

It is an awesome industry, and you have built a good network so far, but something is missing.

Maybe you are becoming too comfortable, and you want to be challenged again.

Maybe you’re hungry to sell a different product, something more exciting.

Well, as far as tech goes, this tech is pretty sexy – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Analytics… and all completely wearable?!

So, who are they?

I am working with a Pre-Series A, VC backed, fast growth SaaS start-up within the wearable tech space. They are at one of the most exciting stages in their business life.

They use AI and data analytics to improve the performance and technique of amateur and elite athletes – making actionable and data-driven training insight and sell into the likes of coaches, clubs, and gyms chains, to name a few.

You will have a massive part to play here, with the opportunity to internally develop and build your network within the industry. They have a big client base already, mostly across the UK right now, but the plan is to go global, starting with the US and more of the European market next year!

Sure, you will inherit some accounts when you join (with a heap load of opportunity to up/cross sell), but it is your existing network that will put you in good stead to hit the ground running.

You will not be relying on incoming leads; you will be hungry to go and out and create opportunity yourself. With a whole load of the market untouched – you need to be ready to build relationships and consult your customers on what product will help them the most.

You do not need to be a sports expert or an athlete yourself to be considered, but you will need to understand your customers, their pains, and what drives them. You’ll be speaking to these individuals every day, after all!

What we are looking for is:

An awesome track record in revenue performance
At least 2 years’ experience selling SaaS/tech
Experience selling sports/wearable tech
A strong network within sports retailers and other relevant businesses
A personal interest in sports
German/Spanish speaking preferable! 

In return, they are willing to pay between £30,000 and £35,000, with uncapped earning potential too. The more work you put in, the more you will be rewarded.

They are based in Loughborough, so you need to be commutable to visit the office as often as needed!
