We are seeking a manager to run a new sales pod on the Brand Partnerships Mid-Market sales team. This new pod will own 3,500 Tier 3 and Tier 4 clients. Tier 3 clients are existing clients with ODC where no direct relationship exists with the brand or agency, and Tier 4 are clients that spend with ODC but are not assigned to a Client Partner. The Sales Manager has flexibility to move clients between Tier 3 and Tier 4 classifications. Candidate must possess deep experience in digital advertising with specific expertise leveraging 3p audience data, contextual targeting and brand safety solutions. In this role you will manage a team of 5-6 Client Partners that own a fluid group of 250-350 assigned clients that primarily buy Oracle 3p audience and contextual targeting solutions. Mentoring a new team that may have little to no experience in ad tech is a key requirement of the role. Managing a large group of clients and continually assessing new opportunities is also a core requirement. Our Mid-Market team has a great culture that is integral to our success, thus cultural fit is very important in this role. Key responsibilities include: * Mentor a more junior team of Client Partners that may require training on both the ad tech ecosystem, as well as Oracle Data Cloud product suite and granular training around building 3p audience plans and contextual targeting recommendations. * Continually drive your team's outbound sales activities to ODC clients and their agency contacts to break through and establish new relationships with clients that already buy Oracle Data Cloud products indirectly through our channel partners. This function is critical to success in this role. * Determine which specific brands are assigned to a Client Partner, as well as evaluate net new opportunities and whether they should be assigned to a CP. * Ownership of a team that covers a broad set of clients across all verticals (Retail, Financial Services, CPG, Technology, etc.). Your primary goal is to maximize their usage of ODC products and grow revenue to ensure the Mid-Market sales team exceeds annual pool plan target. * Manage a team that executes on inbound requests for our contextual targeting, audience, brand safety and measurement solutions for your assigned clients. * There is a player/coach component to the role, where you will manage a smaller set of clients directly to stay close to all issues related to supporting clients such as selling, servicing, supporting, contracting, and more. Skills and Qualifications: * Mentor, trainer, recruiter, developer of future sales team star performers. * Experience managing a sales team or client team buying digital audiences is a plus. * References that strongly endorse your role as a pod sales manager. * Ability to manage a team that covers a massive and diverse set of clients. * Experience with digital advertising agencies is a huge plus. * Must be detail-oriented and have strong organizational skills that can juggle many activities at a time. Tracking individual Client Partner activities and metrics that move the sales needle are critical to the role. * BA/BS degree required About Us Oracle Data Cloud helps marketers use data to capture consumer attention and drive results.
