Senior Account Executives drive revenue by selling Google’s mobile solutions to top-tier advertisers. This is a high-energy job requiring persistent and persuasive interactions with clients, deep mobile and Internet expertise, proven sales skills, the ability to work collaboratively with internal sales teams, closing deals, strong communication skills and a broad base of mobile industry contacts. You think strategically, anticipate how decisions are made, and understand the details of individual campaigns, and you’ll persistently explore and uncover the business needs of key clients. You’ll also promote and manage
senior-level relationships to ensure that your customers’ needs and requirements are met. This means you’ll take their feedback and serve as their advocate within Google while collaborating with other Google Sales teams to provide them with a comprehensive portfolio of options and customized solutions.
