👋 Attensi is a Norwegian company specialized in gamified simulation training. Since our inception in 2012, Attensi has grown to become a global leader in the field, with training solutions used by global brands in more than 140 countries and in 30 different languages.
We work with some of the largest financial services and professional services firms globally and many leading retail, hospitality and pharmaceutical organizations including The Boston Consulting Group, Accenture, PwC, Zurich Insurance, Circle K, Novartis etc. Attensi is growing at an exponential pace and having recently secured $26M investment from Lugard Road Capital, DX Ventures and Viking Venture, we are now focused on growing our business in new markets.
Attensi’s team now consists of more than 190 Game Changers across our HQ in Oslo, Norway and London and we have started building our team in Boston, US. Here, we plan to establish a large team and a strong presence – SUPERFAST!
As an integral part of this effort to establish and scale our US-presence we are now looking for an Account Executive for our office in Boston.
Account Executive, Professional and Financial ServicesSector
To support and expand on our international growth, we are currently seeking an energetic and motivated Account Executive to focus on building our Professional and Financial Services vertical. This is considered a key role in our growth and is reflected in both the remuneration and opportunities for growth outlined below.
We are looking for someone smart, analytical, commercial, and curious and is comfortable taking an insight-driven approach to generating leads, converting them to meetings and communicating Attensi’s unique value proposition in order to land and develop new client relationships. Attensi’s products tend to delight both existing and prospective customers easily and when we get to have conversations with the right prospects, we have enviably high closing rates. Our sales processes tend to be driven forward through close collaboration with the customer to ensure the solutions we arrive at address their specific needs and pain points. For a person who enjoys the art of business development through consultative selling and collaboration with large corporations this is a fantastic opportunity to join a rapidly growing company, backed by strong investors and with products that make a real, measurable impact.
We are particularly excited by people who have Professional and Financial Services experience, who can empathize with our prospects’ strategic objectives and who can credibly and comfortably craft bespoke and tailored solutions to meet their needs.
Attensi primarily work with medium and large companies (typically ranging between 1,000 – 100,000 employees). Success in this role will largely depend on the ability to identify the right prospective clients, initiate conversations with them and conduct meetings with CxOs and director-level prospects. The role will be based in Boston and focus on the US market, but international work will likely form part of the job as we pursue world domination.
You will have:
BSc degree or higher
Client facing Professional and Financial Services background OR proven experience of consultative selling within Professional and Financial Services industries.
At least 6-8 years' work experience
Experience in establishing relationships with CxOs and Directors of large corporations

What will you do?
The very first thing you will do once you join Attensi is to get to know our products, values and way of operating. We want you to get under the skin of our business and truly understand the value we provide our customers, so that you can represent us externally with genuine excitement and confidence.
Beyond that, your role will largely revolve around activities such as:
Identifying ideal customers, and actively pursuing conversations and meetings with key decision makers in those companies, leveraging the defined and proven playbook for the ‘Attensi way of Selling’
Prospecting, generating leads and helping to drive knowledge about Attensi in the Professional and Financial Services space through attending industry events and exhibitions, hosting webinars etc.
Build lasting, meaningful relationships with other members of management, team, and prospect/customer community necessary to manage accounts and close deals
