Sales Director – SaaS / LegalTech
First Sales hire
Circa £80k basic + Double OTE (uncapped) + Equity
The company are an early stage SaaS business who have developed a highly advanced risk management solution for the Legal space, that significantly reduces time and is highly cost effective.
They secured Seed funding earlier this year and are backed by a number of well known, leading industry names as well as highly respected tech investor.
Their product has been very well received to date and they can already count a number of the top law firms in the UK as customers.
Despite achieving some great wins through the founder’s activity to date, they are looking to push for Series A funding next year and as a result it is now time to appoint an experienced Sales Director to the business, in order to achieve their MRR target.
The Sales Director will be ultimately responsible for increasing MRR through securing new clients in the legal space. The company is enjoying a great reputation and inbound and referral activity from investors, clients and contacts predominantly forms the basis of the business development activity.
As the business prepares for series A, the Sales Director will purely be required to act as an Individual Contributor, focusing purely on securing new clients and increasing MRR through Transactional and Enterprise sales. Once funding has been secured, it is expected that the Sales Director will be able to focus on building the sales function, hiring a high performing team and developing the long terms sales strategy.
