Job Description

Axiom Cloud is transforming how the world’s cooling systems are powered, operated, and maintained in order to generate significant climate and financial impact. We need to deliver fantastic products at a massive scale to realize this mission.

Axiom Cloud’s customers include several major North American grocery chains, and the company is on-track to deploy services at our 100th customer site in the coming months. To help accelerate our growth, we are seeking an Account Executive with refrigeration, HVAC, facilities, or grocery domain expertise. This account executive should have proven success selling enterprise software to Axiom’s key customer stakeholders such as energy, facilities, and sustainability managers, including a focus on customer success. This is an empowering, high-impact, customer-facing role, and the right Account Executive is expected to become one of Axiom Cloud’s top revenue generators. The job requires the typical attributes of a great salesperson, account manager, market strategist, and customer advocate. It also requires a willingness to learn the technical side of how Axiom Cloud’s subscription-based apps use AI, cloud computing and automation to solve commercial refrigeration’s biggest energy and maintenance challenges.

What You’ll Do

  • Own specific prospects and customer accounts throughout their entire lifecycle (including initial pursuit, upselling additional sites and services, ongoing retention and customer success), likely including many of North America’s largest grocers
  • Develop and execute customer engagement requirements and strategy, including targeted growth plans to meet or exceed account goals (as measured by ARR growth, customer satisfaction, churn, etc.)
  • Serve as the “voice” of the customer to internal teams. This includes effectively communicating on topics such as price proposals/changes, product changes, new product needs, performance metrics and other relevant topics to ensure Axiom Cloud understands customer expectations and desires 
  • Propose solutions to meet customer needs that are supportive of new wins and are in line with strategic company OKRs 
  • Ensure operational alignment by clearly communicating Axiom’s product strategy, understanding the current status of product development, internally communicating customer forecasts while managing against strategic key results and performance metrics
  • Develop and coordinate focused sales plans to maximize sales penetration
  • Plan, conduct, and coordinate commercial and technical presentations on Axiom’s current and new products and their applications for customers
  • Identify gaps in the product roadmap and collaborate product teams to fill those gaps
  • Generate and discover new opportunities for sales and new services in addition to expanding customers’ current use of products and services 
  • Collaborate with Engineering, Operations, Sales, and Support teams to resolve customer issues post-launch, focused on customer satisfaction and revenue retention
  • Regularly review key performance indicators for improvement opportunities and propose process optimizations where applicable 
  • Play a pivotal role in growing the sales team and serve as a mentor to junior sales team members 

Who You Are

(Note: We want a diverse, global team, with a broad range of experience and perspectives. If you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications listed below, you should still seriously consider applying.
