We are seeking to hire  commercial sales / deal origination executives to take a lead role in the identification, sourcing and progression of software company acquisitions. Very much a full funnel sales opportunity, the role will focus on building deep relationships with software business owners and driving engagement with them that ultimately leads to SaaS companies being acquired.

  • Work across other departments and work with other colleagues to deliver positive business outcomes
  • Work extensively with Sales & Marketing tech stacks
  • Ultimately working to facilitate the acquisition of high potential SaaS firms

The Person

  • Either working in SaaS, FinTech, Business Services in a sales role or working in PE or Investment in a deal origination role
  • An E/Intreprenurial mindset that matches the SaaS environment that they will be immersed in
  • Experience in M&A, Investing,  Finance or an Investment Banking background would be helpful or a solid background in SaaS with a keen desire to work in SaaS M&A
