Strategic Partner Acquisition Account Executive

HubSpot has over 100,000 customers and continues to experience significant growth. HubSpot’s Go-To-Market (GTM) model includes a significant sales and services partner channel. As HubSpot’s offering has developed into a platform that encompasses marketing automation, sales automation and services automation, there is a need to develop our partner ecosystem to support our customer needs across all elements of the platform. 

Our partner channel is a key element in our strategy and therefore we are seeking to hire a Strategic Partner Acquisition Account Executive to target key potential partners. 

Key responsibilities

As a Strategic Partner Acquisition Account Executive, your mission is to sign targeted strategic partners to the HubSpot Solutions Partner Program. The focus will be on high potential partners that have over 50 employees, are focused on growing their business, want to service multiple HubSpot products and have built out a dedicated sales, services and technical team.

This role will require a review of the current ecosystem and the development of a plan to target high potential partners for signup to the HubSpot Solutions Partner Program across NAM. Prospective partner engagement is done primarily over the phone/zoom.

The focus will be on expanding HubSpot’s ecosystem capabilities to include more CRM, service automation and technology partners who have strong sales, implementation and service capabilities. The technology service providers and resellers will include IT service providers, marketing, CRM and customer service specialists and systems integrators. 

This role requires a combination of strategy, channel sales and commercial acumen with specific responsibilities that include:

  • Build a target list of potential strategic partners
  • Develop a playbook to approach, attract, engage and sign up these partners
  • Define a playbook for working with other Partner Acquisition Account Executives, direct sales Account Executives and Channel Account Managers to help source target partners
  • Work with the Channel Account Managers to ensure rapid time to MRR
  • Over-achieving monthly and quarterly partner acquisition targets.
  • Represent the North America sales organization for partners acquisition engagements across HubSpot’s global organization 
  • Represent HubSpot in external partner events
  • Work collaboratively with HubSpot's marketing, enablement and partner program teams to evolve our partner acquisition and engagement strategy 
  • Work collaboratively with the Channel Account Managers to ensure that they have high quality partners.

 

What are the role requirements?

  • 5+ years minimum experience, ideally in but not limited to the Software/SaaS industry
  • Strong consultative selling and C-level experience
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • History of working with a partner channel and ideally with acquisition experience
  • A sharp focus on your goals and a strong approach for achieving them
