More about you

You are an energetic and proven sales leader who swears by a strong operational rhythm. You have likely worked in a mid-sized business where you have worked with best-in-class strategies and structures, enabling success for you and your team. You are excited by the opportunity to create something that you can be proud of and build a team from the ground up. Enterprise sales is your thing and great people love working with you. You thrive in an environment where you are running complex deal cycles and coaching others. 

Whilst you have worked within the enterprise space you are not a corporate stalwart but someone who can blend with any business. You love working with smart people and you get excited about solving big problems for customers.  

What success looks like

In your first month, we will give you the full induction so that you understand the company culture and meet all of your cross-functional partners. We will ensure that you have all the tools that you need to be successful. You will also spend quite a bit of this time working with Simon, the CEO, and David, Director, Sales Operations so that you have a full understanding of FrankieOne’s mission and vision. You will have started to gain a clear view of what we sell and how we sell it and you already know where to start!

By month two you will have seen some sales presentations, have asked a lot of questions and have a clear understanding of the problems we are solving and the business cases that we are pitching. You will start to formulate your strategy and be building a pipeline of new opportunities.

By month three you are well entrenched and you are well down the track with the strategy and have already started hiring the first members of your sales team. You and the team are celebrating some wins and creating huge momentum. 

You will be partnering with David Box, Director, Sales Operations. David started his career in the Automotive and Insurance Industries, transitioning to SaaS when he migrated to Australia in 2011. A former BDM and Sales Director, David has hands-on experience as well as an ability to transform numbers into business insights. David is a keen iRacer and family man. David will be based in the Melbourne offices.

You’ll also be working closely with Simon Costello, FrankieOne’s CEO. Simon initially started his career in investment banking though has since successfully founded 3 further startups across Europe (www.streetbees.com), Asia (www.hyphengroup.io), and Australia (bopple.com), collectively raising over $200m in capital. Simon is a bit of a hippy at heart, rides his bicycle everywhere, lives in the North and his pride and joy are his vegetable patch and wormery.

Logistics 

The full-time role will be based in our Docklands, Melbourne office or our Sydney office. As mentioned above, we have a flexible work-from-home policy though we are in the office on Wednesdays and Fridays as a minimum so we can maintain our vibrant office culture and use these days for team collaboration / problem-solving.

Our interview process will involve a series of interviews with the senior management team.
