  • Invest in meaningful relationships with economic buyers and advisors in your accounts by providing high-quality customer engagement activities (training, quarterly business reviews) on the solutions in which they have already invested.
  • Build custom presentations and demonstrations based on customer defined objectives and goals versus needs.
  • Be open, collaborative, and customer-focused in all communications and transactions with your global account team and clients.
  • Close all orders with the larger LinkedIn investment in mind and provide post-contract support to ensure product delivery and satisfaction.
  • Demonstrate sales operational excellence by using our CRM tracking activities and, most importantly, forecasting.

    In your first 12 months in this role, you will accomplish:
    • Over-attainment of individual quota targets while understanding how your efforts contributed to the wider account team success.
    • A deep understanding of some of LinkedIn's most complex global accounts, how to plan and prioritize across this complexity and significantly increased business acumen.
    • An understanding of how to manage & deliver to value for long-term partnerships and at the long-tail to support broader account-based objectives.


      Basic Qualifications:
      • 3+ years experience in customer facing, quota carrying sales, account, or relationship management roles.
      • Fluent in English

        Preferred Qualifications:
        • Ability to understand complex requirements and craft custom solutions.

          Experience selling to EVPs, CXOs and end-users (in the same sales cycle) in both individual and team sales environments.

          • Experience closing new business and managing existing accounts.
