Most importantly, fantastic brands trust Lexion to manage contracts: Outreach, OfferUp, Brooks Running, Blue Nile, and many more.

About the role:

Lexion is seeking a Director of Sales to lead and grow our sales team. We’re looking for a candidate who has done it before: taken a small sales team selling a B2B SaaS product that customers love, and scaled it to support a high growth business. As an accomplished sales leader, you will be adept at recruiting top talent, setting quota and comp plans, creating a data-driven organization, and setting strategies to sell effectively. We are looking for someone who is laser focused on success, and will not just drive their team to win, but create a workplace that attracts top talent. If you are a top performer, and looking for a high growth business with a killer product and fantastic team, please apply.

  • Building a metrics driven organization to monitor and improve performance, including by providing senior leadership greater visibility into sales execution through improved forecasting, pipeline management, and other key sales metric measurement and reporting.

  • Player-coach mentality.  The candidate will relish closing deals directly, while also building the team and processes.
  • Has sold ACV “transactional” SaaS product(s), where ACVs are under $100k and sales cycles are on the order of weeks.
  • Technology literacy sufficient to appreciate and communicate our ML differentiation to customers in an authentic manner, and also interface with our product and engineering team, bringing back key product learnings from our customers.
  • Has navigated and helped scale a growing product that likely still has some product iteration ahead.
  • Has some number of trusted AEs or BDRs who s/he could attract and hire to Lexion.
