The Role

Having found exceptional product/market fit with 100+ B2B partners worldwide, we’re in the midst of transitioning from ‘start-up’ to ‘scale-up’, and looking for a transformational sales leader to capitalize on the huge potential of our product.

You’ll report into the CEO and have 4-7 direct reports and wider sales team of 30-40 sales.

We are looking for a passionate revenue generator, builder and a straight up hustler to help us achieve something special. At other start-ups, you might find this role referred to as “VP of Sales”

We don’t pretend this will be easy – joining a company and embarking on the scale-up phase is an amazing challenge, pushing well beyond the boundaries of natural growth cycles. You’ll move quicker than feels comfortable, and be brilliant at continually re-prioritizing what must be done to keep Virtual Internships growing month over month.

  • Partner with marketing to align go-to-market message and execution

  • Work closely with product team to help influence & shape product/offering direction

  • Whenever required, “lead from the front” by closing any strategic / large accounts

  • Attract top talent for hiring new Partnership Development Managers & Partnership Account Managers

Job requirements

  • 10+ years of proven results, with 5 of those years managing a B2B sales/revenue team for a VC/Private Equity-backed organization

  • Demonstrated experience of scaling up a sales function in a post-product-market-fit org’s journey of $1-10million ARR

  • Experience selling to Universities/Higher Education/Upskilling market

  • History of managing teams selling B2B products/services for institutional/enterprise-level clients

  • Solid skillset in navigating legal, security, and compliance challenges

  • A builder mentality; easily able to handle a fast paced, hyper-growth culture while keeping a steady hand to drive team’s success
