Unity technologies is uniquely placed to increase the rate of innovation for companies across multiple industry sectors and is looking for an ambitious, self-motivated and experienced Sales Manager to lead our team of Corporate Account Executives in Austin, Texas.
This is a recently established team who are growing net new logos and managing existing customers across both gaming and non-gaming verticals. You will lead the Corporate Sales team selling to small and medium sized gaming studios plus larger corporate enterprises.
The team is primarily an inside sales organization, however, you need to be comfortable with and have experience in leading teams who are converting both high velocity, run rate revenues plus complex sales cycles and larger deal values.
We are looking for a creative and agile leader that can blend both the science of sales leadership i.e. KPI assessment and pipeline conversion ratios with the art of being a progressive, compassionate and authentic sales coach. This team has the potential to scale up exponentially, so building teams and segmenting territories will be something you are comfortable with. In addition to net new logo acquisition there is also a portfolio of existing customers to manage.
