Do you want to play a part in safeguarding maritime traffic and coastlines of the world?
Are you commercially driven, technical interested and motivated by the opportunity to contribute to the security of both vessels, people and the environment?
Terma has the radar solutions for this, but we now need another sales manager to engage with our existing and new customers.
At Terma we are guided by one overall purpose: To deliver security for countries, alliances, and individuals. We operate in a variety of areas, but security is always the key. We deliver advanced technologies to keep people safe, both in peacetime and in times of conflict. We have delivered and installed thousands of radar sensor systems worldwide since the early 1990s, and we are the market-leading supplier of port Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) radar sensors, with our solutions applied in 14 of the world’s 15 largest ports.
For our Security Sales department, we are looking for a new sales manager to cover our radar solutions in the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) and Coastal Surveillance Systems (CSS) application areas, primarily for our market in Europe, but also overseas. VTS and CSS are two of our most successful radar applications in a region where Terma is the market leader and sets the standard. Resulting in a high activity level with many business opportunities, that we continuously pursue. This means that the work environment is dynamic and characterized by multiple parallel projects, short deadlines and many potential wins.
We are looking for a sales profile with the ability to both guard our name as a high-quality brand and to support growth by developing the pipeline through close interaction with system integrators and end-users.
In close collaboration with your colleagues, you will be responsible for the VTS and CSS market in Europe. Your main responsibility is to seize every business opportunity to keep winning the market in Europe by developing and maintaining strong relationships with potential customers and relevant stakeholders such as port authorities, navies, coast guards and system integrators.

Respond to public tenders and prepare commercial and technical proposals – supported by Product and Proposal Management
Negotiate contracts – supported by Contract Management
General market development such as participation in industry exhibitions and seminars

The ideal profile holds a combination of commercial skills, technical understanding and market interest. You must have strong people skills, be proactive towards new business opportunities, have excellent communication and presentations skills and be a good negotiator. You will be working with sales, but in a technically complex area, where you have to be the expert towards our customers, and therefore we expect you to have a technical insight that enables you to understand our products. Furthermore, we are looking for a candidate with:
Experience from technical project sales
Experience from working internationally
