5 reasons for choosing a career in tech sales

February 12, 2024 - 1min. read

What are the reasons to start a career in tech sales? Why should you? Well, there are at least five reasons why.

1. The image

First of all, there’s the image: tech sales are cool. Everybody knows individuals such as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, or companies like Oracle, HubSpot and Salesforce. Those are all people or companies that are truly changing the world.

2. Job security

Secondly, there’s the job security. A tech sales career is always a good option, as people who start working in tech sales often stay in this field for the rest of their career, and work their way up to become a real expert. A tech sales career is therefore a safe bet for the future.

3. The salary

Thirdly, there’s the salary, of course. I don’t think I have to explain this one, but let’s just say that even I, as a sales recruiter, am often surprised by what you can make in tech sales.

4. High demand

Fourth, tech sales professionals are in high demand. With every tech company needing good Sales Development Representatives (SDRs) and sales professionals, opportunities are abundant. The COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated the digital transformation, increasing the need for tech sales expertise.

5. The variety

Last but not least, the world of tech offers a wide variety of job positions and companies. You can work at a vendor where the software is made, you can work in a start-up, a scale-up, in international environments, smaller SMEs selling to large enterprises, smaller companies… The choice is yours.
