Inside Sales Executive (Belfast)

Chargifi is looking for a high performing Inside Sales Executive with experience selling B2B tech/SaaS, who can help us build and contribute to an industry leading inside sales function that will dramatically accelerate our capability in demand generation.

About Chargifi:

Chargifi is experiencing huge growth due to the market opportunity and demand for smart wireless charging and this is an ideal time to join. The majority of smart phones now have wireless charging inside and it won't be long before it is as ubiquitous as WiFi.

Wireless power is now doing for power what WiFi did for connectivity, cutting the final cord and enabling a truly mobile world. Chargifi delivers the market-leading cloud management platform that enables the mass deployment of wireless power. In a similar way to the multi-billion dollar success of enterprise WiFi platforms (Meraki, Aruba, Ruckus), Chargifi has built and patented a software platform that specialises in the management, monitoring and monetisation of wireless power.

We are backed by an incredible set of investors including Intel Capital, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Accelerated Digital Ventures, and Chargifi recently announced a partnership with renowned brand Belkin at CES 2019 to make their wireless charging units smart. Most recently Chargifi announced some significant senior additions to the leadership team, most notably the appointment of Keerti Melkote - co-founder and president of Aruba networks, and the man who bought convenient WiFi to the world - as Chairman of the Chargifi Board.

Chargifi provides systems integrators and businesses (for example Marriott, MGM, Grand Hyatt, Hilton, BT, Amazon, and Imperial College London) with the tools that enable them to provide and deploy wireless charging (as a service) at scale. Chargifi SmartSpots are deployed in over 20 countries, with a global reach of distributors and resellers across NAM, EMEA and APAC.

Chargifi’s Vision

We are going to take this way beyond consumer electronics, the world is going electric and electric is going wireless. We will extend beyond consumer electronics into electric vehicles and industrial (drones/robots) making wireless charging connected and smart for better experiences.

Every global car maker has an active wireless charging programme. BMW and Mercedes have launched EVs that charge wirelessly and others are following..and smart wireless charging is a key requirement for autonomous vehicles.

As we prove success in the consumer electronics space we will then turn our focus to building out new markets for EV’s and smart cities. This role will be pivotal in generating demand and market feedback to ensure our success in realising our vision.
