We are Latana, an innovative product focused on capturing the $5 billion+ brand tracking market. Put simply, Latana gives brands the tools to make better marketing and campaign decisions by giving them world-class insights about their brand performance. In its short existence, Latana has already started working with some of the hottest B2C brands, including Headspace, Transferwise, Unilever, and more – and we’re just getting started!
About the Role
As we enter the next phase of Latana’s growth (read: figurative world domination), we are looking to expand our fearless crew of Sales Managers to identify, engage, and sign our next tidal wave of high-profile clients.
Did you know that brands invest over $1 trillion in advertising and marketing every year? Most companies, however, still have no affordable or reliable means of measuring the return on investment, in particular its effect on the ethereal, difficult-to-measure concept of ‘brand’. Since its launch in April 2019, Latana has been at the forefront of solving this problem by offering SaaS brand analytics for a prestigious (and growing) set of organizations (e.g. Headspace, Revolut, Blinkist, and more). Your role as Senior Sales Manager will be to spread the word among prestigious B2C brands on how Latana can help them measure their brand impact. You’ll be the point person for warm and cold leads, managing the full cycle up to closing. If you’re an entrepreneurial and ambitious sales executive who wants to reap the rewards of being part of a high-growth tech business, this is your chance to shine!
Build and grow your own pipeline of client companies that meet Latana’s sweet-spot criteria: brand conscious, fast-growing, and B2C Companies. You’ll leave no stone unturned in your quest for clients and your persistence and tenacity will become the stuff of legend!
Refine sales messaging, prospecting, qualifying, and closing techniques. Nurture and engage leads through all mediums necessary (phone, web conferencing, in-person) and convince them of Latana’s value proposition with charisma and professionalism.
Strategize, negotiate, and close business! Intro calls, multiple demos, aligning stakeholders across the organisation in sales meetings, and contract negotiations will all be a part of your daily success here.
Report weekly on your sales performance metrics to drive operational efficiency and customer success. You will constantly be on top of every stage of every deal.
Represent the company at (virtual) industry events and become an industry expert in the world of brand tracking.
Your Skills and Experience
