Sales Executive - Outbound

Scroll to content

Automata is building a world class Company and disrupting the Automation industry with Eva, the first low cost high functioning Industrial Automation Robot. We are looking for highly motivated Sales Executives to join us on our journey and help enhance our customers businesses. 

We’re building a game-changing product, and what we’re doing here is going to redefine what it is to ‘work’. When you represent us, you’re representing and conveying that message.

What will you be doing?:

  • Prospecting and working on opportunities across the Manufacturing, Chemical and Metal, Plastics & Electronics industries
  • Moving qualified customers through to purchase 
  • Building sales plays in our existing markets plus exploring new potential markets
  • Strategic analysis of the market, identifying commercial opportunities for Automata 

Here’s what we’d like to see in you:

  • At least 3 years of relevant experience - this is not a junior role 
  • Sales experience in a technology-oriented field where the product is technical and where an element of customer education is involved
  • Experience managing a sales CRM to generate reports and provide insights on sales activity
  • Startup experience is essential for success in this role 
  • Experience qualifying leads, segmenting inbound interest and prospecting for leads for outbound sales
  • Experience managing customer relationships and maintaining relationships in a B2B environment
  • Ability to execute a sales process, discovery and qualification abilities plus an intellectual curiosity to solve our customers problems
  • Ability to execute a sales methodology 
  • Demonstrated ability to work cross-functionally, especially with marketing and engineering teams
  • Great interpersonal and communication skills, fluent in English with top quality spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • Good computer literacy in Microsoft Office and Google Productivity Suite
  • Empathy, you’re a good listener and passionate about solving customer problems

Unfortunately we are not able to offer sponsorship for this role and will only consider those eligible to work in the UK.

Recruiters - please do not contact members of the team directly.

Work on your terms

Our team benefits reflect the transparency and autonomy that’s at the very core to Automata's culture.
As we continue to grow and learn we expect our benefits to do the same. We welcome all suggestions from the team on how we can best provide a meaningful package that has a positive impact on their lives.

  • Learning & Development 🎓

    We each get £1000 per year to spend on our personal growth, learning and development.

  • Unlimited holiday 🏖️

    Taking holiday should be a joy, not a source of anxiety.

  • Flexible working 🤹

    We know that a ‘one size fits all’ working week is unrealistic for a growing team. As much as we can we want to help you balance your work and home life.

  • Employee referrals 💰

    If we hire someone you refer, you get to work with a valued colleague or friend and you receive a £1000 referral fee!

Our values

From the beginning of the company, Automata's founders upheld a few key principles:

  • Be guided by how things should be, not what they need to be: we think from first principles
  • Have as wide an impact on as many people as possible: we solve large scale problems
  • Create things that are almost too good to be true: we push the belief envelope
  • Means are just as important as the end: we love a good intellectual challenge
  • Our work should speak louder than us: we speak less, do more
