Head of Sales & Partner Relations

Sell me this pencil.

No actually, don't sell me this pencil, we don't want a salesperson like that.

We don't really want someone to do "hard sales" that's not very Razor at all. We want someone who loves technology, gets the positive impact that it can have on people and organisations and articulates how Razor can help drive positive change with technology. We want someone who can create a clear strategy (a posh word for plan) and then most importantly execute that plan.

Sometimes it’s easier to say what we don’t want than what we do, so here is a binary questionnaire, answer yes to any of these and you might as well stop reading any further;

  • In a conversation, do you use all the old sales tactics to "just get a sale"?
  • Emojis are not something you should ever use 😉
  • Listening comes last.

OK, that was a short list of what we don't really want, but hopefully you get the idea. We are after something less traditional.

You are probably now thinking, I get it - no hard sales - what do they want then?

We are looking for someone who has an infectious energy, one that resonates and builds on the Razor culture. Someone who can connect with people and build a relationship. Someone who has empathy and can gain rapport quickly. Someone who is a great listener and can present solutions. Creativity is a must and a passion to explore the new and be a pioneer is paramount.

We are looking for someone who knows they don't know everything and can ask for help and be a part of a team. To really flourish at Razor, you will want to be a part of something bigger than you or us and be happy to be pushed out of your comfort zone on a regular basis.

We understand that you probably won't know the nitty gritty of software and more than likely won't have a deep software engineering background. You don't have to, we have some rather good people who do. We have proper techies who can and love speaking with people and are able to turn the complex into something understandable to many.

You will more than likely have some good experience in a similar role, any form of agency experience would be a big bonus and in software would be even more interesting to us. If you have experience in a similar area and can demonstrate results, we are still interested.

You will have goals and targets but always with key results that are within your control. This won't be an easy ride though - if you want one of those, you are in the wrong place. We don't know about you but an easy ride seems a bit boring and a waste of time!

Sounds amazing, I am interested - how much then? Did we read your mind or what? We don't set bands or set figures - it's all about what value you can bring. We always look after our people and remuneration is no different.

Our challenge to you: get our attention and start a conversation. There are no set rules on how to do this and here are a few tips. Be different. Surprise us. Make the effort. Stand out.

Over to you

What to expect from us?

We pay you well and care about your development. We are flexible and offer flexible working hours. We understand that you are human and have a life outside of work. We don't expect you to slave away - we want you to be productive and happy.

We will give you some of the best people to work with - people who you will be able to teach and who you will also learn a lot from.

The work we do is vast and varied and almost all targeted at Azure. We work on high scale concurrency ticketing platforms, IoT platforms with stream processing and big data analytics, Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, cross-platform native mobile apps, bots, API's and of course websites.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries and have a clear vision of where we are going and who works well in our team. We are growing a culture with people who share our beliefs and want to enjoy the technology wave with us. We have our cause that is far greater than ourselves that we truly believe in.

Razor is a place where you will be pushed to reach your full potential.
