About the role:

  • Sales Strategy and Pipeline Management:

  • Build and maintain a robust sales pipeline, tracking opportunities through various stages of the sales cycle and driving them to closure.
  • Utilize CRM tools and sales analytics to effectively manage leads, opportunities, and sales activities.
  • Customer Engagement and Relationship Building:
  • Cultivate strong relationships with key stakeholders within enterprise client organizations, including C-level executives, business leaders, and technical decision-makers.
  • Understand customer needs, challenges, and objectives, and position our Lamini platform and solutions as transformative tools to address their business goals.
  • Conduct consultative sales meetings, product demonstrations, and presentations to articulate the value proposition of our AI solutions and drive customer engagement.
  • Solution Proposal and Negotiation:
  • Collaborate with internal technical and sales/solution engineering teams to develop customized proposals and solutions that align with customer requirements and priorities.
  • Work with the GTM leader on deal negotiations and contract discussions with prospective customers, ensuring favorable terms and conditions that maximize revenue and value for both parties.
  • Market Research and Competitive Analysis:
  • Stay abreast of industry trends, market dynamics, and competitor offerings in the AI and natural language processing (NLP) space.
  • Conduct market research and competitive analysis to identify opportunities for differentiation and strategic positioning in the marketplace.


  • Proven track record of success in B2B sales, with a focus on technology solutions and enterprise software.
  • Deep understanding of AI technologies, particularly Large Language Models, and their applications in enterprise settings.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build rapport and trust with diverse stakeholders.
  • Strong negotiation and persuasion skills, with a demonstrated ability to navigate complex sales cycles and close deals.
  • Self-motivated and results-driven, with a passion for driving revenue growth and exceeding sales targets.

Here are the attributes we'd like to see:

  • Strong communicator and collaborator: be direct and assertive while demonstrating respect and positive regard for others
  • Creative: You’ll be on point to develop and iterate on messaging, pitches, sales strategies, and pricing structures, as well as handle tough customer questions.
  • Deeply, conceptually technical with a voracious appetite to learn: you don’t need to code—but you need to get familiar enough with the nuances of your product and your market
  • Self-aware and honest: We want you to be open about skills or experience gaps and capable of accepting and acting on feedback.
  • Accountable: You are willing to take ownership, are driven to constantly improve, and show a high tolerance for change and ambiguity.
