About this position

We are looking for an Account Executive to help develop and build sales opportunities with potential and current customers at Ahrefs. 
In this role, you will work with agencies and large brands to understand if Ahrefs is a good fit, as well as develop and nurture existing relationships (think Fortune 500, leading software companies, and global marketing agencies). Day-to-day, you will help educate and consult companies on SEO best practices, identify opportunities to grow their business and scale their use of the platform. 
This is a great sales opportunity for someone who is self-motivated with lots of room for growth. Unlike other organizations, you won’t be bound to aggressive sales or retention metrics as everyone’s bonus is compensated against overall company performance. 

This job is no longer online. We keep it on here for reference only.

About Ahrefs

Ahrefs Pte. Ltd. is a software company that develops online SEO tools and free educational materials for marketing professionals.

We are a lean multinational startup headquartered in Singapore that values making meaningful and easy-to-use products. We shift things fast to give our customers what matters most to them, and to keep us ahead of the game. Our motto is "First do it, then do it right, then do it better."

Ahrefs' founder and CEO, Dmitry Gerasimenko, built his first document search engine when he was only 15. His interest in search engines never waned and in 2007, he revisited his work on search engines for documents and files. This led to the birth of our backlinks index in 2010, which in turn became the source of data for Ahrefs' first version of Site Explorer.
