Sales Executive – Mergers & Acquisitions Market

  • Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

Job description

Are you driven by the dynamic landscape of mergers and acquisitions (M&A)? Do you thrive in identifying strategic opportunities and navigating through complex fast-paced deals? Then, join us as a Sales Executive specializing in the M&A market within the EMEA&APAC region. As part of our team, you'll spearhead direct sales initiatives, fostering new business ventures while nurturing and expanding our existing client base in the realm of M&A.

Who we are?

SIG is an independent technology-based consultancy firm delivering high-end software quality assurance solutions for enterprises around the globe. We believe we can make the world a better place, by helping business and technology leaders create safer and healthier applications required to realize their organizational objectives. To support our strategy it's the sales department’s responsibility to build sustainable long-term relationships with our key clients by supporting them with continuously identifying hidden risks and opportunities in their software code or of the company they would like to acquire - whether they are building, buying or operating software – and advise and guide them in their digital transformation.

How we work

  • Leads get generated either by marketing, focused BDRs, partners, consultants who work at the customer’s premises or by the Sales Executive’s network.
  • After an initial visit (or call) with the client about their issues and needs, internal business development starts with a lead consultant.
  • A proposal is drafted and presented to the client, and the deal is closed if all goes well.
  • Of course, the sales department works with state-of-the-art processes and tools (like Salesforce).
