Founded in 2006, ReputationDefender® provides online reputation and digital privacy solutions for individuals and businesses. We are the pioneering firm in the online reputation management space and now have the backing and support of The Stagwell Group behind us as we expand our industry-leading services into new markets. We offer all of the benefits of a mature organization with vast resources and a profitable core business, yet we still function with the agility and speed of a start-up.
We are experiencing particularly rapid growth and high demand for our online privacy solutions targeted at large enterprises, who need privacy protection today more than ever to protect themselves and their companies from physical and cyber threats. We are looking for a smart, analytical Sales Manager with experience leading and scaling a sales team in an emerging high-growth market to lead this charge for us in 2021 and beyond.

As a leader, you will collaborate to develop the sales strategy and drive key growth and new business initiatives to achieve sales objectives. You will manage, hire, train and ramp a team of Mid-Market/Enterprise Account Executives responsible for new and expansion bookings. Partnering closely with the Sr. Director of Sales and Marketing, you will draft the playbook for how we continue to grow revenue in your respective group.
The ideal candidate has opened doors and executed sales cycles within the functions of Information Security, Executive Protection, and/or Risk Management in large enterprises, and has prior experience selling SaaS/IaaS, security products, security/investigative services, ID theft protection, or other similar solutions into these organizations.
