Job description

We’re looking for a UK Managing Director who can help build and execute STX Next’s UK strategy. Working directly with the VP of Sales, Service Delivery Managers (SDMs), and Pre-Sales, you will help to develop new business, improve the client onboarding process, increase retention, and identify opportunities to upsell services. You will be our first hire in the country, so your efforts will be instrumental in establishing and executing the strategy that will serve as the foundation of our client-facing activities in the UK.

Through ‘get-to-know-you’ meetings and ongoing email correspondence, you’ll help build strong relationships that last throughout the client lifecycle. However, we’re not only all about the numbers – it’s equally important to gather feedback from our clients (measured through third-party interviews, case studies, and referrals).

STX Next is a Private, Equity-backed “Product Development as a Service” (PDaaS) company. The company’s founder managed to hit on a programming language—Python—well ahead of its time and today the company is capitalizing on this decision. Five years ago, we had 15 clients from Western Europe and the United States. Today, we have more than 60 active clients from across the globe.

STX Next has scored high on prestigious rankings such as the Financial Times 1,000 and the Deloitte Fast 50 Central Europe and we’re eager to achieve even more recognition with your help.
