Senior Account Executive

Job Description

Vitech is seeking an experienced and motivated Senior Account Executive to communicate the business value of Vitech products and solutions to engineers, managers, and executives. With an emphasis on proactive business development, the successful Senior Account Executive will identify and target prospective industries and customers in a highly technical marketplace where success requires effective diagnosis and discovery of the customer needs along with development of solution-oriented proposals that sync Vitech’s software and consulting services to satisfy those needs.

Who is Vitech? We are a pioneer and industry leader in integrated model-based systems engineering solutions. After 28 years supporting the systems engineering community—including commercial and government organizations involved with some of the most complex and innovative programs around the world—we are poised to take our solution to the next level! Through our 2019 acquisition by Zuken Inc., a global provider of electrical and electronic design and data management solutions, we aim to connect systems engineering and detailed design capabilities in unprecedented ways, enabling a new era of product development and integration. To do so, we must continue to advance our state-of-the-art software while cultivating our user community and the ecosystem of third-party connectors and other resources at an ever-increasing pace.

Beyond the direct responsibilities of the Senior Account Executive role, working at Vitech affords all team members the opportunity to contribute across the company – product definition, methodology, marketing, customer experience, and beyond. This is an opportunity to escape bureaucratic environments and narrowly defined roles and have real influence in an organization delivering mission critical tools that help change our world.

  • Draft concise, professional, and effective business proposals that summarize client situation and pain points and boldly advocate for the solution that is most suitable to the client’s needs
  • Attain monthly, quarterly, and yearly sales requirements while supporting the broader business development team in achieving team-level requirements
  • Possess an entrepreneurial, proactive style and drive to build a sales opportunity pipeline and deploy the Vitech solution

The following experience – while optional – will help position you for immediate success:

  • Software and services solution sales experience in a high-tech marketplace
