  • Drive the procurement and commercial processes to successfully close business.
  • Lead a Copperleaf “deal team” to support both solution definition and sales process execution
  • Champion the needs of your customer and your deal internally within Copperleaf
  • Continuously gather knowledge of competitors and how to effectively position our solution
  • Drive a sales process that will highlight our solution as a strategic advantage to the prospect
  • Routinely discuss and communicate opportunity plan sales strategy with other members of the account team, as well as field and corporate management
  • Maintain an accurate and documented pipeline of opportunities (prospects and suspects) within CRM


  • You naturally connect with people and make friends wherever you go
  • You are focused on creating great outcomes for your customers and love to see their success
  • You love challenges and are driven to win
  • You have strong skills in problem solving and strategic thinking
  • You have experience and are comfortable selling enterprise software to C level executives
  • You know how to navigate complex organizations and have experience with complex software sales, solution selling and value based selling
  • You can position new business within the account by developing, communicating and driving effective selling strategies that are based on a customer-specific value proposition
  • You enjoy leading a cross-functional team to drive results
  • You have dynamic presentation skills, the ability to articulate customer problems and challenges, and then link them to the value proposition
  • You have general familiarity with consultative selling methodologies
  • You enjoy travelling and are willing to spend 50% of your time visiting clients or attending industry events in the region (during COVID, travel expectations will vary based on target account locations and relevant Copperleaf guidelines, account guidelines, and local/federal regulations)
  • Experience in asset intensive industries such as Utilities, Oil & Gas, Mining, Public Sector or Transportation is desirable
