Sales & Business Development
Posted on Monday, May 6, 2024


XM Cyber is a continuous threat and exposure management solution that drives the most efficient remediation options for clients by understanding, continuously, all the ways that critical assets can be attacked. The technology turns the existing silo-based cyber security model on its head and removes the big disconnect that exists within end-user organisations where Security and IT teams have stopped working together as lists of CVEs and other exposures get longer and longer! We are a SAAS based pre-ipo cyber security vendor that has the backing of the largest retailer in Europe thereby avoiding the challenges that many vendors have with Seed/PE/VC investments – we have a long-term vision for the industry, our company and allow our teams to think strategically.

You will be an inspirational and experienced Channel Account Manager with a strong technical background and a track record of selling enterprise cyber security solutions to large enterprises with channel partners.

You will evangelise the XM Cyber solutions and value proposition at all levels of our channel community from engineering, pre-sales, sales and their senior management. Aside from working directly with the channel partners, there will be occasions where you will be working directly with end-users in a pre-sales capacity.

This role involves working hand-in-hand with an experienced team of world-class professionals who all believe in the vision and future success of XM Cyber.

You will apply strong domain experience in the enterprise security space, coupled with a strong enterprise pre-sales methodologies to underpin the success of your assigned region and fuel the growth of XM Cyber.

The day-to-day activities may involve preparations for customer and prospect meetings, presentations, scoping, and competitive positioning. Some of the other responsibilities are as follows.

  • Provide account management with the channel partners, to build, execute, maintain and report on their pipelines.

  • Develop and evolve solution propositions that fit the needs of large enterprises to build custom propositions that resonate with the clients you are working with.
  • Introduce and present XM Cyber capabilities, use cases, and technology via presentations, white board sessions, and product demonstrations
  • Qualify opportunities by understanding the customers business need, operational pain points and technology ecosystem
