⭐️ Your mission ⭐️
You will contribute to our mission to give everyone access to personal, delightful, affordable health and well-being by selling our Insurance products to prospects.
What is being a Large Account Executive at Alan and why do we need them? The sales’ scope is composed of 4 main pillars
- Generate Leads to achieve our company objectives:
As Account Executive, you drive deals, manage key customer relationships and help close strategic opportunities with prospects (companies with +300 employees). You are directly responsible for educating prospects, providing inspiring product demonstrations, and onboarding companies’ key stakeholders as they transition from prospect to customer. At the same time, we expect you to understand, embrace and apply the Alan Smart & Soft selling method. This method stems from the concept that the prospect experience is an inseparable piece of the overall Alan customer experience. You are expected to make this experience pleasant, instructive and delightful by leveraging the most relevant messaging and materials (Smart) and by defining the high-touch strategy that suits best each prospect (Soft).
- Contribute to Growth/Sales-driven initiatives:
We expect the Account Executive to be proactive on identifying, challenging and leading initiatives that aim to increase the Alan awareness, consideration, sales funnel rates and win rates.
The insurance market is a traditional sector in which being a trusted partner is a key decision factor in the decision-making process.
The Account Executive is in charge of enlarging their spheres of influence by meeting and leveraging influential HR Directors, CFOs, C-levels, Board of Directors,... you speak on behalf of Alan during well-targeted events for which we are offered the possibility to be on-stage speakers.
- Ensure customer and market need requirements are collected and pushed to the relevant internal teams to address market expectations:
The Account Executive's position is strategic: by being on the front line, you are the eyes and ears of the company. You are in charge of gathering, formalizing and passing on the prospects’ feedback and objections to the Product teams so that they can prioritize the roadmap and implement the changes that will drive growth the most. We trust the Account Executive to leverage the internal resources in a constructive and respectful way that makes the company grow. We believe this is a healthy way to collectively and individually improve. Since Alan relies on a strong written culture, we also expect the Account Executive to contribute to enrich the existing documentation.
