In a typical week, you might be running demos in London, working with the Marketing Manager on a new strategy, meeting customers, or liaising with the delivery team to ensure the next client’s needs are perfectly met on their project. Working in a fast-growing tech company, you’ll be expected to exhibit a high degree of autonomy and will be able to research and develop solutions yourself. You will play a key role in our growth, while your position advances and responsibility grows as we do.
