With (potential) clients and partners, you create trust and connections in a heartbeat, asking relevant questions and acting as a trusted advisor to improve the relationship and the impression of our product.
Your responsibilities will look something like this:
- Reach out to and engaging in strategic conversations with potential clients and partners
