RESPONSIBILITIES

In this senior-level Business Development position you will be taking ownership of the entire sales cycle, end-to-end. This includes lead generation, identifying and qualifying opportunities, pre-sales and sales activities such as proposal preparation and presentation, negotiating and closing enterprise deals. This position is a combination of both an individual contributor role and a management role as you will need to handle a lot of things yourself while using the support of a dedicated team.

The clients you will be targeting are mainly enterprises in Western Europe and North America having a potential for 7-digit business volume with Musala Soft. You will need to excel in consultative selling and building strong relationships within a complex and long sales process. This involves working with a diverse group of client-side technical and business decision makers and influencers. The main thing that you will have on your side for achieving success is the fact that you will be selling a reliable and high-quality service. Other valuable assets and differentiators you can rely on are our strong and recognizable portfolio of clients and award-winning projects as well as the support of our competent colleagues across the whole company.

You will also be expected to actively follow through with each newly acquired client. For a significant period of time after closing a deal you will be jointly responsible with the respective Delivery Manager for our client’s success with Musala. This way you will act as a bridge and will provide a smooth transition to the delivery phase, assuring that we deliver what we have committed for. This is how we serve our clients.
