🐘 Who are we?

At EnergyElephant our mission is to help organizations make better energy and sustainability decisions using their data.

We do this by helping them to create, store, organize & analyze all their energy, carbon, transport, water, and waste data in one safe, simple and searchable location (including scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon emissions).

We are one of the fastest-growing sustainability software startups around, using our automation, A.I. and analysis technologies to help companies save time, reduce costs, and improve sustainability results.

We are a fully remote team but we also support flexible work in shared office spaces if required and have regular team meetups/days out.

👀 Who we’re looking for

We want passionate, professional sales people who want to make a difference and grow with our team as we improve and expand. We are looking for an experienced, passionate, adaptable and self-motivated Senior Sales Lead who will focus on our international sales growth, building out our sales team and refining our sales playbook. You will be joining a multi-talented team of committed problem solvers who are passionate about getting our planet back on track when it comes to a sustainable, safe future for us and for future generations. We are also moving society towards a fossil fuel free future and all the associated benefits this will bring from energy security to air quality improvements.

You will lead our international sales campaigns from marketing, advertising, lead generation, prospecting, initial contacts all the way through to product demonstrations and contract close, where you will hand over to the customer support team. You will develop our sales playbook and constantly feed information back to the development team on sales questions and requests from the market. You will be getting in at the ground floor level with the opportunity to learn, lead and expand your responsibilities as your career develops with us.

👷🏾 What you'll be doing

Your responsibilities will include inter alia:

  • Setting and meeting quarterly sales targets (annual recurring revenue) as well as future sales strategies (new customers and increasing annual contract values).

  • Growing and expanding our sales team across marketing, prospecting and sales.

⭐ Required experience

  • Some general knowledge and a keen interest to learn about current energy, carbon and sustainability technologies.
