  • Spending most of your time searching recruiting new partners
  • Worrying about how much you will earn each month
  • Spending most of your time on the road

Key Responsibilities

  • Leading weekly review and monthly strategic meetings with top channel partners in your region
  • Tracking and providing weekly sales support for key deals, ensuring successful closure
  • Gaining a deep understanding of our products to inform and educate channel partners
