Head of Sales
LONDON, ENGLAND / REMOTE / INTERNATIONAL – INTERNATIONAL SALES / FULL-TIME
Wavepaths supports mental health and wellness with music. Our approach is led by research into the effect of music on emotional processing and cognition. Our music is a collaboration between award-winning artists and AI. Our technology integrates breakthroughs in neuroscience, machine learning, music theory and experience design to facilitate transformative experiences with music.
Having developed clinical-grade technology and refined our therapeutic approach in the context of mental healthcare (supporting 300+ clinics around the world, as well as clinical trials at leading academic institutions), we are growing and expanding through broader verticals. We work diligently to improve our lived experience of the world around us through music.
As our first senior sales lead you have the freedom to define and develop our growing sales function at Wavepaths. As a rapidly growing startup expanding into new verticals, opportunities are bounded only by your creativity, initiative, energy and focus. We are looking for an experienced sales leader ready to strategically prioritise and drive international sales, growth and penetration through the diverse set of market and vertical opportunities that ‘Music as Medicine’ represents.
With the support of our co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer Anna Wakefield, you will be both defining strategy and setting quotas alongside managing your own sales pipeline. We are growing fast with more inbound leads than we can efficiently handle. As we grow you will grow a world class sales team around you to bring Wavepaths music into private practices, clinics, businesses and homes around the world. In the short term, as an independent contributor, you will have the opportunity to sell into enterprise opportunities in our network in the FTSE 100.
This is a foundational role at Wavepaths with significant opportunity for impact. Your work drives our growth as a company, delivering music experiences that are therapeutic and potentially transformational. In doing so, you will make an invaluable contribution to realising the potential of a new paradigm of mental health and wellbeing – “Experience as Medicine”. Ultimately, your work helps improve mental health around the world in a subtle but powerful way.
You will work directly with our co-founder and CCO, current sales team, and cross-functionally with marketing, CS, product, music and research.
Our team is remote, with home-bases all over the world – UK, US, Canada, Poland, Finland, Spain, Portugal and more.
