Since our inception in 2014, we've had some pretty impressive growth (100% YoY), reached unicorn status in 2022, and now serve 300,000 businesses globally, with 2 million+ users on the platform. We have no plans to slow down.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join one of the fastest-growing SaaS unicorns, so let’s see if we could be a match!

What your days might look like

As an Account Executive, you’ll be reporting to our Sales Manager (New Zealand) to drive business growth locally in the NZ market and build strong customer relationships.

Your role involves identifying new business opportunities, tailoring solutions to meet client needs, and effectively communicating the value of Employment Hero's platform. Working closely with prospects, you'll navigate the entire sales process, from initial contact to contract negotiation, ensuring a positive experience. Beyond meeting sales targets, your focus is on contributing to the overall success and satisfaction of clients by providing strategic insights and support. With a deep understanding of the HR and payroll technology landscape, you'll play a vital role in shaping the future of work for NZ based SMEs.

As an Account Executive you’ll:

  • Drive new business development through proactive hunting with a consultative approach
  • Manage the complete sales cycle, including prospecting, pitching, conducting demos, presenting, and closing deals
  • Confidently engage with C-suite executives, showcasing effective presentation skills and adept negotiation techniques
  • Collaborate closely with the SDR team to qualify opportunities and successfully close deals
  • Maintain a strong and organised pipeline to consistently meet assigned monthly quotas
  • Utilise Salesforce CRM to ensure the accuracy and currency of customer data

What you will bring

  • Experience in B2B tech/SaaS sales, running end-to-end sales processes (closing deals & conducting SaaS demos)
  • Values based selling experience, dealing with multiple decision makers
  • Confident in a fast-paced, high-volume sales environment
  • Proven track record of success in sales
  • Hungry, curious, tenacious & a team player - We Are One Team
  • You are ambitious - there is a huge opportunity for growth as we love to promote from within!

Experience is important, but for us the biggest measure of success is people who can live and breathe our EH Way of working. Show us what you can bring to the table, and we’ll empower you to let your talents shine.
