Commercial Associate - New York at Tessian
New York City, NY, US
Commercial Program at Tessian
Tessian, one of Europe’s fastest-growing cybersecurity & AI/machine learning startups, is looking for hardworking, ambitious, and entrepreneurially-minded individuals to serve as founding members of its first US office, based in NYC.
Backed by some of the world’s leading investors, including Accel (investors of Facebook, Dropbox & Slack) and Balderton (investors of MySQL & Yoox Net-a-Porter), Tessian recently raised a $13M Series A to aid its global expansion. Our clients include some of the world’s top-ranking investment banks, law firms, PE and hedge funds, and we’re growing at ~500% per year.
As one of Tessian US’s first Commercial team members, you’ll be joining the Inside Sales team with a focus on demand generation - strategically identifying, prospecting, and qualifying new leads, crafting succinct & engaging campaigns/marketing rhetoric, representing Tessian at industry / insider events, and contributing to the team’s go-to-market strategy.
After initial training in our London HQ, you will hit the ground running and start contributing to growth. You’ll communicate with high-level industry decision-makers and work closely with the Head of US to unlock revenue.
Tessian believes in meritocracy. In exchange for high energy and ambition, we’ll offer you an unparalleled opportunity to jumpstart the growth of Tessian’s US arm and bring a world-class cybersecurity/machine learning product to thousands of users. Within 18 months, you could be managing a team, directing US strategy, or personally closing deals with some of the world’s most renowned institutions.
Please note: we are unable to offer US Visa sponsorship
