About the role

We are looking for an Account Director to join us on a path of continued expansion.

The role will involve building the sales pipeline and support both the Immersive Labs Head of Sales, as well as the Senior Vice President for North America.

There is a global skills shortage in cyber security that is increasing cyber risk for businesses globally. Immersive Labs, an online gamified learning platform for security skills, is taking a global approach to tackle this risk. Our practical, challenge-based labs are developed by industry experts and derived from world-class threat intelligence. Customers can now match the agility of attackers, demonstrably increasing cyber capability and reducing risk.

Immersive Labs was listed in Wired Magazine as one of the UK’s top 5 cyber companies changing the future of cyber security. Having experienced phenomenal success and growth in our first two years within large enterprises like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and BAE Systems, we are expanding our sales force in North America. We are looking for Account Directors to sell the Immersive Labs platform across all levels of large enterprise companies, federal state and local government, and MSSP’s.

The Account Director role will require the successful candidate to be responsible for building their own sales pipeline and nurturing sales to achieve a quarterly target. The role will require a self-starter who is confident to work remotely, with as-needed travel across U.S. and Canada, and the occasional visit to our headquarters in Bristol, U.K. Applicants will need a background in delivering large strategic wins and achieving targets within the IT security space. The Account Director role will support both the Immersive Labs Head of Sales, as well as the Senior Vice President for North America.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a team selling a ground-breaking product in a rapidly growing technical company.
