We’re looking for a self-motivated and proactive team-player with a successful track record in selling B2B software solutions to mid-to-large organisations across sub-Saharan Africa. You are customer-focused, creative, an effective communicator in both written and verbal forms, and analytical by nature.

  • Work with key prospect stakeholders to get buy-in to proposed solution(s).
  • Negotiate the best outcome for both parties.
  • Feedback relevant market information collected to our Product Engineering teams.
  • Maintain prospect details, forecasts and pipelines in Pipedrive (or equivalent).



You’ll check the majority – if not all – of these boxes:

  • 3-5 years of quota-carrying experience in software sales and a track record of achieving targets.
  • You can effectively lead a sales cycle, build and manage a pipeline and deliver accurate forecasting.
  • Existing relationships at mid-large sized employers across sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Affinity for tech.
  • Consultative selling experience.
  • Ability to challenge the status quo with innovative thinking.
  • Ability to engage senior stakeholders across prospect organisations.
