Job Description

At IBM, work is more than a job – it’s a calling: To build. To design. To code. To consult. To think along with clients and sell. To make markets. To invent. To collaborate. Not just to do something better, but to attempt things you’ve never thought possible. Are you ready to lead in this new era of technology and solve some of the world’s most challenging problems? If so, let’s talk.

Your Role and Responsibilities

The IBM Security Brand Partner Specialist (BPS) is a core sales role in our security business unit, focused on positioning our end-to-end security portfolio, in a way that addresses our client’s objectives and needs.

The BPS software role at IBM Security is responsible for selling our industry-leading portfolio of security software solutions. The successful candidate will work closely with our ecosystem partners to help clients define their needs and design solutions that address them. Cyber security is a fast-moving, growing domain, and success in this role will come from your ability to adapt to each client and partner’s specific needs, and leveraging the breadth and depth of IBM’s expertise.

As an experienced sales professional, you are comfortable growing your pipeline by prospecting through campaigns, and partners and engaging in other activities to identify new clients.

To achieve this, you must have the ability to maintain a sharp focus on your full client portfolio and needs, and a thorough understanding of cyber security trends, client business processes, client financial measurements, and performance indicators to manage and meet quarterly and annual sales quotas.

The BPS anticipates potential problems, finds solutions to solve them, is guided by business directives, and has the latitude to define priorities and resources for sales opportunities. They have and maintain expert skills in engaging in complex negotiations, and closing sales opportunities, using all the tools and support provided. They have expert technical sales knowledge of specialty offerings and will acquire a breadth of knowledge in disciplines across other IBM specialties and IBM Business Partner offerings.
