Role

Spoiler Alert is seeking a high-performing Enterprise Sales Executive to add new CPG brands to its growing, globally-recognized customer base. Spoiler Alert is the market leader in helping CPG manufacturers digitize their discounting strategies for excess and aging inventory. Candidates should have an entrepreneurial spirit and demonstrative experience in selling solutions-based software within the CPG and grocery retail industries. Our Sales Executives are the front line for net new customer acquisition, so we’re looking for a driven, hungry, and creative individual to take our customer base to the next level. 

In this role, you will take full ownership of revenue generation activities from new accounts. This includes account-based and persona-specific prospecting, creating and executing account-based strategies, deploying a team-based sales approach, and negotiating contract terms associated with a volume-based SaaS pricing model.

We have a big mission and large market opportunity, and this individual should be passionate about leveraging technology to reduce waste and increase affordable access. The ideal candidate will possess an extreme sense of urgency, high degree of intelligence, and an aptitude at navigating multi-stakeholder deals rooted in quantifiable P&L benefits across cost reduction, margin recovery, revenue growth, operational efficiency, and risk avoidance. 

Responsibilities

  • Cultivate meaningful leads and relationships with leaders of global food, beverage and CPG brands within their Supply Chain, Sales Operations, and Finance functions
  • Apply a consultative, strategic sales approach to successful navigate complex sales cycles, knowing when to bring in appropriate Customer Success and Product team members to support deal advancement
  • Spearhead deal negotiation with prospects’ legal and purchasing team, ensuring the right cross-functional stakeholders have been engaged to champion our partnerships, while optimizing for multi-year contracts and customer reference-ability
  • Bring a passion and thorough understanding of food and CPG industry trends to all leadership, management and sales activities, staying keenly aware of market signals, enterprise pricing strategies, and our competitive landscape
  • Build on go-to-market, growth, and marketing strategies that increase top-of-funnel lead generation and/or (profitably) shorten the overall sales cycle
  • Collaborate with the Customer Success team on account transitions and establish clear expectations with prospects on the optimal service model and expected value drivers
  • Articulate a volume-based SaaS pricing model and work with sales leadership to navigate and iterate on contract elements related to term, fee structure, and volume expectations 
  • Provide ongoing visibility to the state of your pipeline and voice of prospects, including competitive dynamics, new market opportunities, and solution enhancement insights
  • Develop and achieve quarterly revenue targets and forecasts for new customer acquisition, with routine reporting for internal audiences and aligned to company-wide OKRs
  • Driving market alignment plans and managing the practice pipeline, conducting regular pipeline calls with the alliance(s) and the practice.

Qualifications

  • A minimum of 10+ years' experience managing complex sales cycles with enterprise SaaS solutions sold into the food & beverage or CPG industries
  • Proven track record in fostering relationships with and selling into C-suite and VP-level at Fortune 2000 companies, negotiating 6- and 7-figure multi-year contracts, and meeting or exceeding an individual sales quota
  • A mature understanding of the CPG industry’s supply chain (particularly distribution and retail)
  • Familiarity with data-centric products and the supporting pricing and service delivery models
  • Experience working in a technical environment and translating technical concepts to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Exceptional communication skills (written and verbal) with an ability to work as a team player, build trust, and have empathy across all levels of an organization
  • Strong proficiency with G Suite, familiarity with business productivity applications (Zoom, Slack, HubSpot CRM), and a high level of comfort in getting up to speed with new technology
  • Willingness to travel domestically and ability to be productive while working remotely

Preferred qualifications include:

  • 5 years of sales or business development experience with a fast-paced, high-growth B2B software company (SaaS, ecommerce, or trade promotion management)
  • Experience dealing with individuals in Sales Operations, Supply Chain, and/or Finance roles
  • Familiarity with inventory management, trade promotion, e-commerce, and analytics tools
  • Established relationships with executives at globally-recognized brands

About Spoiler Alert

Spoiler Alert is a Boston-based software company helping perishable CPG brands manage excess and slow-moving inventory. Working exclusively at the manufacturing plant or distribution center level, Spoiler Alert offers a best-in-class B2B sales platform that enables food & beverage brands to manage their liquidation processes across a private network of discount retailers and nonprofit channels - with a heavy focus on maximizing value recovery, strengthening customer relationships, and increasing the effectiveness of supply chain managers tasked with handling these typically manual sales processes.
