The tech is an AI powered multi-language transcription technology that lets companies transcribe their own audio and video content instantly.

Companies currently have to send their content to be transcribed via agencies that can take days (and are expensive) or non AI technologies that make a lot of mistake.

This solution lets you uploads unlimited content and get quick transcriptions - if you've ever had to transcribe something yourself you will know it takes hours to convert minutes of content so this tech is a need to have.

  • Educate the client on a relatively new solution and take advantage of being a first mover
  • Mentor more junior members of the team
  • Help develop new sales collateral and case studies if desired
  • Support lead gen activities with the SDR teams
  • Help push up the average order value
  • Use the existing sales platforms they use to your advantage


  • 3 to 7 years SaaS sales experience, selling a SaaS solution to media, publishing, research or similar companies
  • You must have closing experience
  • Have experience at handling F2F client meetings and pitching solutions
  • Used to handling 20k+ deal but ideal closer to 50k
  • Happy to do a new business role with your own revenue target
