Swoop Aero – Head of Enterprise Sales – sUAS News – The Business of Drones
Swoop Aero was founded to transform how the world moves essential supplies by making access to the skies seamless. We were the first company globally to deliver a vaccine using a drone under a commercial contract. Since then, we’ve expanded globally, transforming the health supply chain with drone logistics operations in four countries.
The work we’re doing is shifting the future of healthcare. We are having an immediate impact on the lives of people who live within the communities our operations are conducted in. Lots of companies say they have an impact but we really have one. We’ve got big plans to shift the paradigm in both developing and developed markets alike, both by deploying our fully managed logistics service into the health supply chain and providing selected partners with our technology platform to further expand their impact.
To deliver on our vision, we’ve brought together a team of eternally optimistic and resourceful ‘doers’ to tackle these seemingly insurmountable problems and make all this become a reality. Last year we tripled our team size, and this year despite all the challenges we are doing it again.
You’re a commercial hustler who sees opportunities where others don’t. You thrive on the challenge and are ready to drive right in. Closing the deal comes easily and you are now ready for a new and exciting challenge. You may come from the commercial team of a high growth start-up or have delivered results in a client facing role of a Tier 1 management consultancy. Most importantly, you will be able to demonstrate results that will transform Swoop Aero and the world.
About the role:
So, what next? With our experienced team and strong capital backing, we’re working to build our global team and expand operations across multiple markets.

You will be responsible for guiding clients through the entire Swoop Aero sales process based on the overall commercial strategy. This will include leading preliminary client meetings, rapidly qualifying leads, conducting client follow-ups and overseeing their successful changeling through our sales journey.
Advancing existing leads:
You will have a knack for quickly developing a deep understanding of customers’ needs which will enable you to build a pertinent business case, develop details of future operations including budget and network design and create customised collateral.
