Chief Revenue Officer, Skyqraft

Skyqraft

Founded in 2019, Skyqraft is an innovative AI/deep tech company helping utilities make better decisions about their grids. Leveraging artificial intelligence, aerial grid images are converted into powerful and usable management information.

To reach the high ambitions, the company is looking for a Chief Revenue Officer.

About the role

The Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) role is responsible for planning for and delivering the revenue needed to meet the company’s objectives. As such, the CRO owns the entire commercial function and is ultimately accountable for driving revenue growth, by leveraging and aligning all revenue-generating departments: marketing, sales and customer experience/customer success. 

In practice, the job entails determining the best ways to beat our competition, shorten our sales cycle, and maximize revenue and value to our client.

If you are the right one, you get triggered by the exciting challenge of building a commercial organization in a company with an established product fit and a pipeline of great customers. The CRO needs to be strongly forward leaning (winner instinct), able to set and drive commercial strategy, but also to execute on that strategy (ie we want an external, client facing resource that opens doors, establishes relationships and makes things happen).

The role will be responsible for:

The Sales team; Head of Sales, Sales Manager Nordics, Sales Manager Europe, Sales Manager North America.
The Operations Team: Head of Operations, Image Inspection, Drone Operations. The Operation Team is responsible for all drone partners collecting the data from the drones and making business out of it.
The Marketing Team: Head of Marketing. A new person will be recruited responsible for branding, marketing, communication and demand generation.
Finance: The company currently only has a junior position managing finance. The CRO will therefore have to oversee the finance function until a more senior (CFO or similar) has been hired. The current finance resource will have a dotted reporting line to CRO and CEO.

Some of your areas of responsibility:

  • Set a growth strategy for the company
  • Define KPIs and commercial targets, set a road map.
  • Create the company’s sales culture
  • GTM strategy, expansion
  • Be a role model and lead by example for the commercial management
  • Set best practice for the sales and customer processes.
