How we sell:

Our new business team operates based on two core assumptions…

  1. We can research how our prospective customers would benefit from Knexus platform before we even meet them (at product demo stage).. This means we do a lot of preparation before we even meet prospects; we don’t take a traditional B2B software sales approach, with lots of discovery initially
  2. Knexus platform typically exceeds customer expectations – so we look for the quickest path to get prospects signed up and using the platform 

Benefits Package:

Industry leading compensation, high growth assured for high performers.
