Pre-Sales Enablement Manager

Posted Apr 21

Airbase is looking for an enthusiastic, solution-oriented, self-starter to join our growing Revenue Enablement team as a Pre-Sales Enablement Manager. In this role, you will be responsible for launching and operationalizing training, coaching, and onboarding programs for our Sales and Business Development teams.

We are looking for someone to help upskill our AEs and SDRs/BDRs through their deep understanding of outbound sales efforts, sales process and methodologies, and new hire experience. You will play an integral role in accelerating the performance of our pre-sales teams and be an inaugural team member of the Revenue Enablement team.

There is no perfect candidate and we welcome those who are looking to grow in their Enablement career. The ideal candidate has experience in a customer-facing role as well as past experience (either full-time, or in a project capacity) in Sales Operations, Marketing, and/or Enablement.

You will work closely with front-line managers across Sales and Business Development, building strong cross-functional relationships to ensure close alignment on initiatives. Airbase is an early-stage, high-growth company, which means this role has huge potential for impact and personal growth. We are 100% remote and are looking for team members who are committed to building community in a distributed organization.
