Account Executive

Join our Sales team in London

Application deadline: 31st Aug 2021

About Egress: a leader in human layer, SaaS delivered, contemporary data security.

Security and privacy are paramount when managing and controlling sensitive data. Whether it is emails containing private data shared with customers or engaging business partners with proposals, contracts, media files or documents, sensitive data should not fall into the wrong hands.

Yet to date, organisations have become frustrated with the multiple standalone tools that fail to provide top-level visibility and global control, which results in users bypassing security due to poor user experience and functionality. With a heightened threat posed by covert external attacks including malware and phishing, and insider threats like accidental and premeditated disclosure of data, plus the growing regulatory compliance burden from aggressively enforced GDPR, NYDFS, HIPAA, PCI, and FTC mandates, the stakes could not be higher.

To address this customer challenge, Egress offers an intelligent data security platform that allows the user the freedom to categorise and share unstructured data safely. The Platform allow companies to automatically discover, understand, secure and control the data they process and share.

Egress can help empower employees and citizens with high availability, easy to use and data sharing and collaboration services with unique Machine Learning automation capabilities for reducing risk in today’s cloud and mobile-centric business. Our industry proven, accredited technology is used across defence, financial services, government, healthcare and the wider enterprise, helping organisations secure data and manage breach risk at over 1500 enterprises world-wide.

The role: Account Executive

As an account executive, you will work closely with the Inside sales leadership to convert inbound, add-on and self generated opportunities to successful customers. You will partner with our inside sales developers to land new business and expand our growing install base in mid markets for our SaaS solution portfolio. You are the confident, ambitious, and be customer-centric sales expert and aspire to the rewards at your fingertips with repeatable closed business.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Developing an understanding of the client’s business challenges, data security regulatory concerns and advising them on ways in which Egress solutions can be used to address those challenges

  • Administering inbound enquiries, qualifying and sending proposals and supporting literature out to existing customers.
