Business Development Graduate Scheme - Technology
Warning: this is not a traditional Account Development role or Account Development team.
What does a sales/business development role mean to you? 200 calls per day? Spamming emails? Sitting in the back where no one can hear you? A ladder to nowhere?
It means something completely different to us.The Account Development Team are the company's premier demand generation experts, driving collaboration across a broader account team to drive the strategy for penetrating strategic companies and prospects.As we bring a transformational, highly complex platform to market, you will lead our efforts to drive targeted engagements with senior executives and technical leaders to articulate and inspire them around industry trends and our vision of API-led connectivity - how mobile, SaaS, IoT, and the democratisation of information is leading to an IT revolution requiring a fundamentally different approach to connecting data, devices and people.
