It’s ZIVVER’s business to make communication simple & secure. It’s your business to make our business grow. This fast-growing scale-up is going like a rocket and needs enthusiastic, self-sufficient and experienced professionals to go even faster.

How? By joining the well established Benelux sales machine, improving our go-to-market approach, utilising your existing network to identify decision-making units and execute! You are a natural closer who enjoys rolling up his/her sleeves, ensuring this scale-up doesn’t just go to the moon but way beyond.

Hot take

  • Qualification is your key driver
  • You don’t try to sell a Porsche to someone without a drivers’ license
  • An untidy CRM makes you itchy

A day at ZIVVER

(We are living during a pandemic, so there’s no such thing as a day at HQ. We fully support a work-from-home situation (read as monitors, headphones, webcam, docks, and whatever else you might need). In normal times though...)

Being a predominantly remote worker you start your day with a scheduled call with your lead to discuss your pipeline building activity for the week ahead. You discuss some ideas you have regarding a CISO Breakfast event and he agrees to work with marketing to secure budget for this.

At 10am you have a meeting scheduled to provide a demo to an exciting new prospect in the Finance Industry so you grab a coffee and put on your headset. The call went well and things are moving ahead so you update your CRM with the latest notes and schedule your next meeting. You finish your morning with a 30 minute meeting with Marketing to discuss an upcoming webinar which should uncover some new opportunities for you.

After lunch you have an important call with a large Bank client to discuss your proposal. You are expecting some negotiation to take place so you have ensured you have the relevant information to hand regarding pricing and technical options that we can offer to sweeten the deal and get it over the line. The meeting was great and you have secured an outline agreement with the customer, they have agreed to take it forward to Senior Management for final approvals so you update your CRM accordingly and send a follow up email to the client confirming the points you agreed.

You now spend a couple of hours working on some quotes and legal agreements for the other deals which you expect to close this quarter. It’s been a great day full of positivity and you have managed to secure some follow up meetings for next week.
