Wavelo is a SaaS business on a mission to make telecoms a breeze.

We provide flexible software that modernizes how communication service providers (CSPs) do business, helping them drive more value, focus on customer experience, and scale their operations faster.

What's New at Tucows

As part of Tucows (NASDAQ:TCX, TSX:TC)—one of the world’s largest Internet services companies—Wavelo is backed by outstanding resources and talent. We embrace a people-first philosophy that is rooted in respect, trust, and flexibility. We believe that whatever works for our employees is what works best for us. It’s also why the majority of our roles are remote-first, meaning you can work from anywhere you can connect to the Internet!

The work we do genuinely changes lives. If this sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you!

About the opportunity

As Sales Director for Wavelo, you will partner with our VP Sales to grow new logo business and help achieve our revenue targets. Reporting directly to the VP Sales, you'll work within a new, fast-moving, and thoughtful team and play a vital role in Wavelo's growth. You will be responsible for prospecting and closing new business across NOAM. You will identify, nurture and close new opportunities, manage forecasts and track customer data. We're strong proponents of a consultative sales approach - learn about the customer's needs before discussing products. Your expertise will be critical in helping articulate the way in which Wavelo will solve the customers' problem(s). You will work with the customer during the sales cycle and include our Customer Success, Marketing and Engineering teams as necessary. Ideally, you come from a technical background and have sold innovative solutions to Tier-1 CSPs.

  • Help build our sales organization and mentor teammates

  • Enjoy working within a small team and having your work play a major role in the outcomes for the company

  • Demonstrable record of consistently meeting and exceeding quota in a fast-paced sales environment (top 10% performer)
  • Advanced knowledge of sales coaching, best practices, and sales methodology
