Job Description


VP Sales - North America
 

Trackunit is a fast-growing company and a leading supplier of IoT solutions, operating out of many offices worldwide. Trackunit specializes in digital solutions that connect machines, people, and systems in the global construction industry. The construction industry is the least digitalized industry of all. This lack of digitalization has left construction far behind a global economy on the rise and placed the industry as one of the least productive industries too.
 

We are looking for a passionate, customer-focused, and growth-oriented executive with demonstrated success in rapidly scaling technology sales at the regional level. Reporting to the Chief Revenue Officer, the VP Sales will manage and expand our North America Mid-Market accounts by leading and coaching a team of sales reps.

With locations in the hearts of London, ON, Kitchener, ON, and Chicago, IL, we offer you a flexible setup with the possibility to work from one of our locations or remotely from anywhere in North America.

What’s in it for you?

  • A place in an agile growth SaaS business, with possibilities to grow internally in the company. We are moving fast, so fasten your seat belt and prepare to be adaptable. Back in 2020 we were 150 employees at Trackunit and we have just passed 400 employees.
  • International environment with regular check-ins and social events across teams, departments and borders.
  • We take your personal and professional development goals seriously and we support them through training, coaching and mindfulness as well as with an outspoken feedback culture to help you identify your strengths and opportunities. We do this by touching upon your impact on our triple focus: impacting yourself, impacting teams/relations and impacting the organisation/strategy.
  • Flexibility and hybrid working is not just a cliché to us or something we state in a job posting. We do offer you a flexible setup and believe that you best can structure how your routines look like. And once you have chosen how you work best, let us know what you need: we got you covered with the IT equipment you need for your work.
  • Turning the Tide. At Trackunit, we are committed to creating and contributing to an inclusive workplace. And this commitment starts with our hiring - we do not discriminate on the basis of gender identity, sexual orientation, personal expression, ethnicity, religious belief, or disability status. We only assess candidates on their qualifications and merit. Learn more about TIDE and other DE&I initiatives here.
