The Company

Gatekeeper is a SaaS-based, next-generation solution that transforms how organizations manage their suppliers and contracts. We help our customers to reduce risk, improve compliance and maximize value.

Due to strong global growth, we're opening the doors for a new Account Executive (Inside Sales) to join the team. This is a rare chance to join a true technology startup, working with a close-knit team to create new business processes, uncover new opportunities and position yourself for success and rapid career progression.

A sales career at Gatekeeper might not be for everyone. We hire a small percentage of the people who walk through our door. If that doesn’t put you off - you might just have what it takes to join us in the exciting times ahead.
