In addition to securing new deals, you will be building out the enterprise sales team, setting the French revenue target, and carrying out local strategic sales initiatives. Overall success will be achieved by working closely with business partners, customers and partners in the market.

You will manage the development of Account Executives and Senior Account Executives by conducting regular one on one meetings to identify growth opportunities and formalise training opportunities.
You will coordinate with the Product team to develop new features for your market, and with the Marketing and Partnership teams to generate a healthy pipeline of leads.
We're looking for people who are able to get customers excited by our product, by evangelising GoCardless and recurring payments. We'd love to hear from you if want to have a lasting impact and are always trying to learn and improve.
