Account Executive

Key Roles & Responsibilities

Purpose of the role

At Groov, we know that the key to growth and achieving our mission is a high-performing sales team. That’s why we are seeking a highly ambitious and competent Account Executive!

As an Account Executive at Groov, you will play a key role in the company’s growth and impact aspiration.

A primary responsibility of the role is to identify prospect organisations based on Groov’s beachhead strategy and work with the rest of the Groov sales team to engage key decision makers within those beachhead organisations. You will get to know their business, their goals and their challenges. You will be involved in taking the prospect on a journey - from problem awareness to understanding that Groov is the solution/painkiller that their organisation needs. It is also your job to set these organisations up for success - sell the dream and provide practical steps to follow in order to achieve. To make sure that Groov is in the best possible position to scale while making our customers successful you will need to follow the company’s sales playbook, which you will have input into refining. You will also work closely with the customer success function of the business to make sure this is turned into a reality.

You should be a quick learner with strong communication skills, and have the ability to showcase our offerings in a compelling way. Every potential customer is an opportunity for you to boost top-line revenue growth, customer acquisition levels, and impact.

As is with all startups, this role will need you to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. As the company grows and achieves specific milestones there will also be added opportunities to gain extra responsibilities across the sales function of the business.
