JOB FUNCTIONS

Win strategic Financial Institution clients over with our products and build a stronger Backbase in the Japan region
  • You must effectively communicate with high level decision makers, thus it is absolutely necessary that you have demonstrable experience in working with C-suite executives.
  • You must be comfortable, and have experience with all aspects of the sales lifecycle, from cold-calling to generate demand, through negotiating high-value, multi-year deals.
  • You are a team-player that thrives in helping others succeed; you require little supervision and are comfortable with ambiguity.
  • You possess the mental fortitude to get things done when the solution is less than clear; you are a problem solver.
  • You respect your time and that of others; you deliver exactly what you promise. We are work and play. At Backbase, you can come as you are and say it like it is. Join us for a journey instead of a job!

Initially, you will work accounts, assisted by a dedicated Business Development Manager, who will support you in lead qualification and sales opportunities. Over time, you are expected to build and direct a regional sales team that is motivated and capable of delivering world class results. Your accounts will be a blend of existing clients, with up-sell and cross-sell opportunities, and prospects. With support and guidance from the global team, including a tight-knit team of pre-sales engineers, you are responsible for the entire sales lifecycle. We will measure you on revenue achievement and satisfied & reference-able customers. You will be part of the Global Sales Team and report to the VP of Sales.
