Who we are

We at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ALEX® , an interactive employee communications platform that makes tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits—easier and more enjoyable. The success of ALEX has exceeded our wildest work-related dreams, which is why we need a talented Strategic Account Executive to help us.

How you'll help

As a Strategic Account Executive, you'll generate ALEX sales within your target market ofenterprise employers with 4,000+ benefits-eligible employees; this book of business will be made up of existing and prospective customers. You'll also work closely with our outbound sales team to map your territory, generate meetings, and ensure that each deal closes successfully and smoothly. On top of that, you'll need to do all that prospecting, networking, relationship building, and jumping through procurement hoops in a way that delights our customers.

What you'll do

  • Hit your quota; typically falling within $1M of new revenue.
  • Generate net new business with our largest Enterprise prospects and growth targets from existing customers.

  • Deliver engaging presentations online (and occasionally in person) with executive level decision makers.
  • Negotiate price and contractual terms with all new customers, and identify who needs to be involved in approving the purchase (legal, CFOs, CEOs, etc.)
  • Serve as the driving force that keeps potential deals moving through the procurement process smoothly, all while exhibiting constant Jellyvision charm.
  • Become close friends with (and all of the other tools we use in our best-in-class tech stack).
