There are plenty of ordinary SEO agency sales jobs out there.  But, this is different; it is an extra-ordinary opportunity to develop your sales career in a fast growing, professional SEO and online marketing software business that counts leading SEO agencies and brands worldwide amongst its clients.

The company is looking to accelerate its growth in the UK and internationally and needs to hire an ambitious and entrepreneurial business development manager to work closely with the content marketing and demand generation team to drive UK sales and to build the UK commercial team.

So if you are an ambitious business development or sales person with experience in online marketing (in particular SEO) then please do get in touch.  This is an office based role working with the management team to set and execute the UK sales strategy.  It requires board-level sales experience as clients are typically senior digital marketing professionals in Enterprises and large digital marketing and SEO agencies.

The role involves occasional travel to the US or Europe and around the UK (although the majority of potential clients are in or around London), the company uses online meetings and face-to-face meetings to sell and support its SEO software globally.

The company has ambitious plans, a great culture of success and pays competitively, in addition every team member gets a meaningful amount of equity after a qualifying period.

Main Duties:

  • Building the UK revenue streams
  • Closing good quality business with Enterprise accounts and large agencies
  • Developing partnerships with international partners and resellers
  • Contacting and qualifying prospective customers through a mixture of inbound and outbound techniques
  • Digesting and understanding client requirements

  • Listening and empathy – must be able to relate to customers

Ideally the candidate will have a proven track record of success in sales within an SEO agency or website development company or perhaps an analytics or SaaS software provider.  But the company will entertain candidates with a proven track record of success in online advertising, business information sales or similar markets.


Attractive:  What one might reasonably expect from a fast growing international business including; good basic salaries, uncapped commissions, equity stakes (after a qualification period) and a hard-working fun and friendly team.  

The basic salary package for this role is negotiable according to experience but is in the range from £25,000 to £35,000 + £15,000 OTE (uncapped) + Equity potential.
