Welcome to the team, Martin!
Martin grew up in Sankt Stefan im Rosental, a small village in the south-eastern part of Austria. After spending a few years studying and starting his professional career in Graz, Martin moved to Ligist in 2014.
Martin’s first job was at Ranorex (a standard product for functional test automation) as Sales Engineer, working with clients world-wide, and later for the US market. After a few years, he started as Sales Manager at Ranorex, focussing on new logo business for EMEA and APAC. Out of that, Martin built a team responsible for new business in EMEA and APAC and led the team for almost 2 years.
For the last 3 years, Martin worked for Parkside Interactive, a company offering premium custom software development as Senior Business Developer, generating leads, converting them into opportunities and customer projects, and internally moving the company into an agile working environment.
Martin likes being a bridge, using his technical education and background, combined with his communicative skills, to connect customers and engineering teams alike.
In his daily work, he’s conscientious and hands-on, and likes to give himself time-outs to reflect continuously with providing and processing honest feedback. Like most people in Sales, Martin loves to close a deal, but he also enjoys moving an opportunity into the next stage, and when his team generates new ideas to sell better in future.
In his spare time, he spends most of the time with his family (3 children) and playing sports. He’s passionate about music (he studied Tuba at University of Performing Arts, Graz!), loves cycling and long-distance hiking.
Martin loves to work with experts, so he’s looking forward to working with and learning from his new team. With great people and great products, he’s excited to get started.
