  • Serve as a subject matter expert providing input, support and approvals on complex deal structures, models and financials, contract negotiations, and booking escalations.

  • Work collaboratively with Go-To-Market leaders to create and prioritize cross-functional roadmaps of process improvements aligning to policies, reducing friction and optimizing deal outcomes.

  • Build key documentation – Business Requirements, Process Flows, Use Cases, and User-Acceptance Test Scripts

  • Understand the impact of Go-to-Market and Business Transformation Initiatives on existing processes and act nimbly to change, replace, or eliminate as appropriate limiting friction in the sales lifecycle

  • Be a creative problem solver who finds a way to meet customers’ needs while adhering to compliance standards and corporate policies

  • Partner with product and pricing teams to define optimal discount models and strategies

  • Coordinate with Revenue Operations, Enablement & Communications to assess training and communication needs ensuring acceptance and adoption of upcoming changes

  • Strong verbal, written, and presentation skills

  • A solid understanding of SaaS business models and multi-product go-to-markets

  • Confident in deal structuring/quoting complex transactions for a fast-growing global company; negotiation experience a plus

  • The ability to lead concurrent projects and drive initiatives in a cross-functional environment

Nice to have experience:

  • Understanding of sales user experience and processes (and SaaS/software sales is helpful)
