Drive global technology


We’re a global market leader in providing software and digital marketing solutions to the automotive industry. We’re innovating the way that automotive dealerships drive their customers’ car-buying experience from the moment they run a search online all the way through to bringing their car back in for a service. Join us and be a part of the evolution.


We’re large enough to make a difference but small enough for your voice to be heard. This means that we are an organisation where every person matters. You can make an impact on the success of our business and that of our customers regardless of what career you decide to pursue.


Role Purpose:
As the new Area Sales Manager, your primary focus will be authorized car dealers and secondarily car importers in Norway. Your main focus will be to promote our portfolio of software and other related services. You will be awarded a customer portfolio of 75 - 100 car dealers, broken down by brand and territory. 

You will be responsible for the development and implementation of all aspects of sales and marketing strategies in relation to your customers and are a key person in the sales team. A significant part of your time is spent with our customers, where you develop and maintain strong relationships with owners, management teams and employees.

In order to manage the sales process, your pipeline, budget and activity rate we will ask you to work with Salesforce ® as a primary tool.

The sales team consists of 10 people including 7 Area Sales Managers in Denmark, Norway & Sweden, as well as Inside Sales Support and Marketing, both of which support you in your daily work. Although it is a demanding role you won’t be left to do it on your own. We have years of experience in leading the market and are looking for someone who can add value to the customers while enjoying our market leading position. We are a flexible workplace where there is freedom under responsibility. We maintain an informal tone, and there is always the opportunity to ask questions and get help in a professionally strong network.

  • Is positive, persistent, systematic, structured and keen to work in a busy to enter into a environment where things move and change constantly.

  • Is an experienced sales professional with proven track record in building long-term customer relations.
