About Salesforce

We’re Salesforce, the Customer Company, inspiring the future of business with AI+ Data +CRM. Leading with our core values, we help companies across every industry blaze new trails and connect with customers in a whole new way. And, we empower you to be a Trailblazer, too — driving your performance and career growth, charting new paths, and improving the state of the world. If you believe in business as the greatest platform for change and in companies doing well and doing good – you’ve come to the right place.

Our Banking and Financial Services (FINS) team is part of our wider Growth Business, focusing on selling into the finance industry. You will have the opportunity to work in a fast paced team with impressive customers, personalised training and career opportunities in the Mid-Business sector

Why Join Salesforce as a MB Account Executive, FINS?
This team supportive, successful and tight-knit. You’re joining our Ohana, and we’re all working towards the same goals.

The FINS space is particularly exciting at the moment as there are multiple industry disrupters entering the market. The barrier for entry is high, and the customers you will work with are highly intelligent and self motivated.

FINS is a high performing area of our business, and we accredit this to the leadership: They have been in your shoes, and they know how to motivate and champion their teams. We offer formal and informal training for all people coming into this role, and this will be entirely focused around your strengths and goals. We encourage 360 degree feedback, so you have the opportunity to take your own initiative and blaze your own trail.

Day to Day

Our FINS Account Executives engage with existing customers and new leads to sell the our finance and banking solutions. They build positive, trusted relationships with both key team members and decision makers within their patch, and become naturals at helping customers realise value from their Salesforce investments.

You will use your new business development skills to develop opportunities, through both warm leads and whitespace prospecting.

  • Partnering with internal teams to drive additional value and share expertise

  • Account tiering, POV mapping & industry mapping

  • Using multiple channels to reach out to sales opportunities and uncover net new logo opportunities

  • Managing and overcoming objections

  • Researching & understanding customer personas and industries

  • Managing accounts and prioritising appropriately

  • Balance competing priorities and timelines

Who you are

  • We are really open to background, and you will do well if you have a genuine passion for the FINS space, or have an interest in an industry that is being disrupted. We have hired from consulting, project management, recruitment accounting and financial services backgrounds. Ideally you will have been in a quota carrying role.

  • Embody a growth mindset. You’re thinking ahead and have a plan for yourself.

  • You're able to craft a point of view, hold an opinion, and build credibility as a 'Trusted Adviser" within your customers

  • Self awareness is very important, and you must understand your ‘why’. You’re naturally curious and will be excited about the chance to absorb all Salesforce has to offer

  • You’re a teammate. We win together and have a passion for progression.

  • Experience will be evaluated based on alignment to the core competencies for the role (e.g. extracurricular leadership roles, military experience, volunteer work, etc.).
