Business Developer (Latin America)

Do you ever ask yourself if what you’re spending your time on at work really matters and fully utilises your potential? Working at Kognity means you don’t have to ask that question any more. Our vision, to provide the world’s 1.5 billion students with great educational resources powered by technology, means that we come to work every single day knowing we’re making a difference in hundreds of thousands of students’ lives.

Kognity is one of the fastest-growing EdTech companies in the world, but we are only at the beginning of our journey towards reaching our vision. We therefore need exceptionally driven, hard-working and warm people who are passionate about making our vision a reality.

Who you are & why we need you

You will be responsible for the most important part of the sales cycle - fuelling our 100% year-on-year growth ambition. You will be spending your time identifying, prospecting, presenting to, and persuading new schools to sign up to Kognity, and be responsible for an entire region, in both execution and strategy. You should have experience working with short sales cycles (< 3 months), and your success will depend on your ability to book and run meetings, close deals, work constructively with feedback and be flexible around new initiatives.

You have that unique combo of having an immense drive for performance and innovation, but also having the biggest heart. That means that meeting your targets is the key driver for you, whilst remaining highly customer-centric and caring as an individual.

Kognity will provide you with a different kind of sales organisation - one where team spirit is most important, the organisational structure is flat, initiatives are encouraged, ownership is supported, and rapid development is required to bring new opportunities.

  • 2+ years’ experience in B2B sales working with short sales cycles

  • SaaS / EdTech sales experience
  • Ambitious yet humble
