Account Executive - Oakland, CA

Overview of the role

Invotra is a quickly growing tech scale-up that sells communications software-as-a-service to large enterprise customers. Founded near London in 2014, Invotra was spun out of one of Europe’s leading Drupal software development agencies. Today, Invotra has over 200,000 end users using Invotra’s each and every day. Invotra is used by 45% of the equivalent of federal employees (civil servants) in the UK. Our team has over 40 people across four locations: our UK head office in Woking, Surrey (near London); Newcastle, Northern England; Dublin, Ireland and Denver, Colorado.

We are looking for an exceptional account executive for our largest US customer, the Sierra Club, as well as future American customers. An Account Executive at Invotra essentially is responsible for exceeding customers’ expectations. We want to thrill our customers with our service and our technical expertise. We want them to be blown away by how hard we work to keep them happy. You, as an account executive, are the prism through which our customers experience this. You will be tasked with growing Invotra’s relationship and sales with our customers. You will develop relationships with key stakeholders. You will manage communications regarding service management, project management and product developments. You will need to become an expert user of Invotra and will likely be called upon to train end users and administrators at your customers. You will represent Invotra, and everything we stand for.

You will need to travel for this role. You will likely be required to travel to the UK, just outside of London, for a couple weeks during your induction period and at other times when required.
