The world's largest asset class in fixed income, operates with the worst data.

Technology has revolutionised the equity markets with electronic trading, quant algos and instantaneous news. However, in debt and fixed income, the picture is completely different. Trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and information is imperfect. Billions of dollars of capital is allocated to companies, projects and investments all over the world - making the best decisions on where to deploy it, requires the best information.

The debt capital markets behave like it's still the 1980s, it is the last to be technologised - our mission is to make it happen.

We're rapidly taking market share in the fixed income data industry with our modern solution that our clients love. 9fin's market leading technology uses AI to deliver financial, credit & ESG insights more quickly than anyone else. It uses cutting edge technology to produce fast news and deep-dive predictive analytics. We help our clients win advisory mandates, react to credit trading opportunities faster and most importantly, save time.

Our fast growing list of clients include 9 of the top 10 Investment Banks, leading asset managers, hedge funds and law firms.

The opportunity

The Sales Team is at the forefront of building client relationships and driving revenue through enhancing clients work flow. This role focuses on bringing new clients and cross selling within existing accounts. There is a high degree of collaboration between other teams to execute the sales growth strategy; enhance our high quality, high functioning, great looking, easy to use products; and to produce a top tier customer experience.

This is an opportunity to join a highly motivated and driven team within an exponentially growing business, servicing the largest financial market in the world, giving you the opportunity to accelerate your sales career.

  • Negotiating and closing new business, delivering the best possible price points
  • Clear record-keeping and forecasting via Salesforce
  • Sharing ideas with senior management to help shape the sales team's processes and inform best practices

  • Effective written and verbal communication skills conveying messages accurately and concisely

We need driven and ambitious sales professionals to help us break into new markets, launch brand new product lines and unlock 9fin's massive potential.
