    Sales Agent – Automotive Software, Detroit

    Are you a former-coder turned software sales rainmaker? Are you a hunter, deeply ingrained in software solution sales in the Detroit automotive industry? Have you previously dealt with automotive clusters, HMIs, and SOC solutions while also being a natural sales leader and conversationalist? Well, if you’re interested to work in the hottest sector of software sales, for a company who already has an established customer base (no cold calls), then we have the perfect opportunity for you!

    Rightware, a software and design company headquartered in Helsinki with locations in Troy/Detroit, Silicon Valley, Munich, Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai, and soon Italy and France, is expanding! Our flagship product is Kanzi, the world’s leading User Interface design and engineering solution for the automotive industry. With the combination of a design studio and a powerful graphics engine, Kanzi enables the rapid deployment of user interfaces and Human-Machine Interfaces with high-fidelity realtime 2D and 3D graphics. Kanzi is endorsed and used globally/exclusively by top industry players that include companies like Audi, Visteon and over a dozen other premium car brands, many of whom are in Detroit. (Kanzi has been in production in nearly 1 million cars already, worldwide.. Check out the Audi Virtual Cockpit now in the R8, TT, A4, and Q7….)

    We now need someone to complement our software sales muscle with boots on the ground in Detroit! You need to be technical enough to fluidly discuss technical details related to our technology with engineers and designers. You also need to be confident (and experienced) having top level discussions with key decision makers at the top Tier1s and OEMs, or better yet you already know these people. We already have existing relationships with these guys, but we would like you to step in to manage and farm. Ideally, you would be our Sales Agent, meaning we would pay you a modest monthly retainer, with aggressive commission. However we are willing to discuss an employee model too, depending on how good you are! Maybe you have a small consultancy with 1-2 other clients? Or maybe you are meant to be a VP of Sales for us full time? Either way, we’re interested to see what you’re made of..

    Who are you?

    Yes you’re a closer, but you have worked in the past as a Project Manager, Technical Account Manager, or even a coder. You have at least participated in developing some software at some point in your career, working intensively on an R&D team in some software project. But now you have transitioned to software sales, you are fearless with new customer acquisition, and you are a natural, intuitive closer. Travel is around 50%, mostly around the Detroit area, but maybe elsewhere. You can work from home, or out of your company car, or out of our office in Troy!

    Requirements:

    Software Solution sales from the automotive sector

    You have had to deal with the technical side of proposals, software costs, hardware costs, billable materials, selling highly technical products and technical solutions

    You are ready to call or visit whoever it takes

    You are ready to lead our sales process in such a way that we have the customer hooked on both engineering and design, and decision maker

    You are humble, keen to learn, interested to develop yourself even

    Excellent communicator, fearless, confident, but not pushy

    Plus Skills:

    Engineering degree, Computer Science, Mechanical / Electrical Engineering

    Does this sound like you? Please send your English Resume and cover letter to jobs@rightware.com with the subject heading ‘Sales Agent’. Thanks, we look forward to meeting you!
