Your Role

This is an opportunity to join the sales and customer success team from a very early stage and build our go-to-market (GTM) function. It's also an opportunity to help hundreds of investment managers measure their impact and accelerate our transition to a more sustainable world.

You will be the key point of contact for clients of Net Purpose and support them in measuring the social and environmental performance of all of their funds. You will build relationships with Heads of Impact, portfolio managers and investment analysts, identify their needs, match to product, present pricing and close deals. Your learnings will help evolve our GTM strategy.

  • Develop a deep understanding of customers' needs as it relates to sustainable investing, and identify how Net Purpose can help

  • Drive new business sales with compelling tailored sales presentations, leading face-to-face sales meetings and delivering product demos, presenting analysis and measurement concepts in collaboration with our subject matter experts and product team;

  • Be a relationship point of contact for existing clients, helping them get the most out of the Net Purpose product and identify additional ways we can support

  • Price and negotiate new deals and renewals by implementing our pricing framework and ensuring a seamless contracting process by engaging with clients and their legal teams

  • Deliver excellent customer service, which includes responding to technical questions, ensuring clients receive information in a timely manner and managing project delivery

  • Team player with the ability to work independently and take the initiative
