Sales Executive, Austin, TX (Institutional Finance, Real Estate)
Summary: Vertalo is looking for seasoned sales executives that thrive off the energy of a high growth, early stage technology company and don’t need or want the comforts of a large corporation. We are overwhelmed with inbound sales opportunities so we need proven sales professionals with early stage B2B SaaS experience.
Do you miss working in-person, collaboratively, with people, in an office? Are you ready to get back on a plane? Do you seek the excitement that comes from driving the growth of an early stage startup? Are you drawn to challenges? Have you ever been part of the early team at a startup? Are you interested in selling into a market that is so large that no one can even size it?
If you thrive in a fast-paced environment and want to join a sales team that hasn’t had to make a single outbound sales call to reach millions in ARR, Vertalo might be for you.
If you can handle ambiguity, like to create more than you like to extract, and like to learn, persuade, qualify, and disqualify opportunities...then this is the sales team for you.
If you want to help us maintain our leadership position and expand our moat, then Vertalo is the place for you.
If you are not fearful, then Vertalo is the place for you.
Vertalo connects and enables the digital asset ecosystem. Our digital transfer agent platform fuses traditional database and blockchain technology - enabling participants in the private assets and securities markets to:
- More efficiently manage primary issuances and the investor onboarding process
- More effectively manage, report on, and analyze ownership data
- More rapidly connect to Alternative Trading Systems for secondary liquidity
The private securities markets are huge yet antiquated. Vertalo is changing that landscape.
For context, the private capital markets raise ~ 2x the public markets every year. Our focus on digital securities and secondary liquidity sets us apart from larger incumbents. We are well positioned in this emerging massive market which equates to huge growth potential for our team. There are extensive near-term opportunities and longer-term exit scenarios for our company.
