9xb delivers high-performing, scalable and secure eCommerce stores for B2B businesses across the UK. Whether clients are planning a new eCommerce project, looking to replatform or simply want more from their existing eCommerce store, we’re here to help. We have expertise with many major eCommerce platforms, but work predominantly with Shopify, BigCommerce and our own in-house system Peracto.

Working as part of the Sales and Marketing team, the primary objective of this role is to sell. New business leads will be passed to you from our Business Development Executives. Your job is then to qualify these leads, understand the prospect’s requirements, build relationships, introduce our range of products and services and pitch a compelling solution that wins the business. You’ll then agree commercial terms with the client and onboard them as a new customer. This will involve regular contact via the phone, video calls and in face-to-face meetings around the UK.
