What is Sylvera anyway?

In less than a year, Sylvera has built partnerships with the world leading carbon exchanges, first-class academic institutions, secured investment from Europe’s top VC fund, and built an extraordinary team.

Sylvera is bringing transparency to the opaque voluntary carbon markets by using satellite data and machine learning algorithms to accurately assess the performance of carbon offset projects. This transparency helps scale a global market primed for exponential growth in the coming 10 years.

What will I be doing?

Having found early product-market fit in a nascent, rapidly growing space, we’re now scaling our sales team at pace. We’re looking for mission-driven, target-oriented account executives to join our commercial function and bring onboard the next 100+ Sylvera customers.

Specific responsibilities will include:

  • Build and own a territory of large enterprise customers
  • Develop and execute outbound strategies to create and nurture opportunities
  • Own the full sales cycle from lead to close
  • Establish and grow relationships with multiple stakeholders within our prospects to drive to close
  • Help optimise our sales process and provide quality feedback from prospects to our product team
  • Those who are successful will progress quickly, either as senior individual contributors or following a sales management path.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Cares deeply about the climate and ecosystems of earth
  • Is a self-starter who thrives in constantly evolving environments, ideally with early-stage start-up experience
  • Is target oriented with a track record of succeeding in mid-market or enterprise SaaS sales
  • Is an empathetic relationship builder internally and externally
  • Can autonomously generate leads, qualify opportunities and close deals
  • Has a hunger to learn, be coached and become a world-class salesperson
  • What if you’re a partial fit?

We prioritise grit, positivity, and the willingness to get stuck in, and encourage you to apply even if your experience doesn’t exactly match this job description.

Equal employment opportunity

Sylvera is an equal opportunity employer: we value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Benefits

  • Competitive salary - 50/50 base/commission, with accelerators
  • Equity in a rapidly growing startup
  • Macbook and any other tech needed to do your job
