Account manager for our new local sales office in the UK

As manufacturer and service provider, IXON creates solutions for machine builders that allow them to easily cloud enable their industrial machines.

Over the last several years IXON has developed a series of compact industrial routers that connect to a global Cloud platform. The cloud-based solution provides machine builders and their customers with all the important service, maintenance and management information at their fingertips. Many Dutch machine builders are already convinced of IXON’s all-in-one solution. IXON is dedicated to further extending the range and rapidly increasing its market share.

Expanding the sales force with a local office in the UK is the next step. As IXON’s UK account manager you will be responsible for bringing the IXON solution to the UK market. You will be working alongside your international colleagues, based in countries such as The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Your activities include the acquisition and management of UK customers: creating new contacts, visiting leads and maintaining sustainable relationships with existing customers. You’re a great partner who is able to consult with and advise clients. Additionally you will regularly participate in and attend trade fairs and other industry-related events.

We are looking for an outgoing, creative, entrepreneurial and precise account manager to further strengthen our sales team.
