The Company

My client is one of the industry's leading Digital Optimisation Platforms in the Ecommerce/SaaS space. They work with brands and retailers to launch and optimise their multi-channel advertising campaigns online.

They work with some incredible clients, offering a huge amount of variety in your portfolio as well as the chance to build strong and meaningful relationships with each client.

They are experiencing record success and growth through consistent high levels of customer satisfaction and multiple new business wins. They are looking to further this by expanding the presales team through the addition of a Pre-Sales eCommerce Consultant responsible for providing strategic and technical support to the our sales team acting as the eCommerce and Marketplace expert for prospective Brands and Retailers.

The Pre-Sales Consultant will also play a significant part in growing the average deal's size by finding out opportunities through a thorough discovery process and by building strong business cases for our prospects.

  • Conducting opportunity and benchmarking analysis which you will use to build strategies for prospective Brands and Retailers

  • Acting as a subject matter expert and thought leader in your market
  • Lead consultative engagements with Brands and Enterprise Retailers on the technical and business challenges related to their Marketplaces and eCommerce initiatives

  • Proven experience of working with recognised global Marketplaces (Experience of Amazon and eBay are a must)
  • Confident speaking in front of an audience and in public
  • Strong communication skills to convincingly articulate complex ideas to a variety of key stakeholders from different functions in a clear and concise way
