The Sales Executive Role

Sales Executives establish new client relationships for Oseberg by pitching our vision and products and making sales.

As a Sales Executive, you will prospect a large territory in the broadest swath of our addressable market.  When you’re successful, you will make a highly visible impact on Oseberg’s growth rate and be well rewarded for your results.

A lot of the Sales Executive’s work will take place along an inside track.  Therefore you must be adroit at working the phone and using content-driven marketing to engage busy executives.  At Oseberg, we provide unique data and software, but primarily sell a vision for how to leverage both.  So, your sales pitches will be solution-oriented product demonstrations

We will teach you about Oseberg’s products and the broader landscape of oil & gas exploration, development and production.  You must be a quick study of these concepts, able to internalize lots of new material and translate it into account-specific value propositions.

Your specific responsibilities will include:

  • inking new sales contracts that meet or exceed short-term quotas;
  • partnering with Oseberg’s Client Success team to transition new accounts seamlessly;
  • surfacing and handling objections that have no business standing in the way of a sale;
  • understanding clients’ strategies and goals, and showing them how they can use Oseberg to excel at both;
  • making crisp sales presentations that compellingly demonstrate Oseberg’s vision and products;
  • speaking with sales leads and prospects by phone to qualify them and create sales opportunities;
  • generating sales leads by research, networking, and referrals;
  • building and accurately projecting sales from an opportunity pipeline.

Qualifications for the Sales Executive role include:

  • A documented track record of consistently crushing sales quotas or goals
  • 3 – 5 years of trained sales experience, preferably with SaaS products
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills (particularly over email and phone)
  • Effective negotiation skills at all stages of the sales cycle
  • Adept at establishing a value proposition, and earning the right to ask meaningful questions
  • The ability to listen for real and perceived customer feedback, and translate into product feedback
  • Experience in the Energy Industry is a plus but not required
  • Bachelor’s degree or higher

In order for this role to be a fit, you must demonstrate these personal characteristics:

  • Thinking differently
  • Independent and comfortable autonomy
  • Results driven
  • Committed to becoming a sales & marketing ninja
  • Motivated to win in a team setting, and driven to make strong individual contributions
  • A desire to learn about and drive change in the oil & gas industry
  • Total personal integrity

Physical Requirements:

  • Walk, lift, reach, stoop, sit, squat, bend, stand, grasp, balance, climb, kneel, crouch, and type for extended periods of time up to 10 hours
  • Occasional lifting (up to 10 pounds of computer equipment or paper).
  • Accommodation may be made for some of these physical demands for otherwise qualified individuals who require and request such accommodation.

Working Conditions:

  • Normal office environment
  • Minimal noise level
