Quote from one of our Account Managers

"Behind our integrated proposition is a clear vision. We provide an 'Intelligent Security Operation' to organizations that choose to outsource their information security. Our customers choose Northwave as a strategic partner, for multi-year partnerships, and for our complex services. In my role as Account Manager, I convey our approach to successful (inter)national companies. It's a joy to reap the benefits of this with over 250 motivated colleagues and a powerful story.

A commercial role at Northwave is hugely varied. For example, you sit at the table with those responsible for risk management, security and IT, from CFO to CISO. Directing the sales process and collaborating with a very diverse group of people including our behavioral experts, psychologists, techies, and business security consultants is never boring. In addition to the variety, Northwave is an organization with a fantastic company culture, which carries over into our sales team. That was the primary reason for me to join Northwave. We are hugely results-driven, but there is a clear long-term focus, which is a relief from the typical Anglo-Saxon sales model I was used to.
