As our Head of Sales Engineering, you will be responsible for leading the evolution of Recruitee’s solution approaches. You will be tasked with building, training and managing a team of Sales Engineers, while overseeing the solutions prescribed, estimated and developed by this team. You & your team will be responsible for driving and managing the technology evaluation and validation stages of the sales process.

You will also start defining the tasks and KPIs for your team while kicking off the hiring.

You’ll help the sales team in discovering, articulating, and demonstrating Recruitee's solution to deliver on specific customer requirements and desired business outcomes.
After 12 months, you will have contributed to a substantial increase in the conversion rate of our 200+ customers (your efforts will be seen by the number of won RFPs). Besides, you will have helped refine our sales processes by removing frictions and facilitating the collaboration between the sales and legal teams.
