ABOUT THE ROLE
We are Codenode, the UK’s largest venue for Technology events and this is going to be the easiest products you’ve ever sold.

These are the things your clients LOVE to hear when they are planning and organising their events and you’ll be responsible to sell Codenode’s Event spaces and and services and support your clients in achieving a successful and memorable experience for their attendees. Your clients will include some of the most innovative businesses in Finance, Retail, Media and Tech, for examples, check out some of our clients here and here .

Your sales achievements will be awarded through excellent compensation structure with uncapped commission. In addition, we offer great opportunities to develop and grow your skills, and career as we grow the company.
Codenode is operated by Skills Matter and in addition to hosting tech events by your clients, it is the home to Skills Matter’s events and its passionate community of software developers who meet daily at Codenode to discover emerging technologies, learn and share skills and evolve practices and ideas.
We’re a growing team of fun people who love what we do. If we are not busy supporting our clients or completing projects, we love playing ping pong or fussball at Codenode : our pretty cool venue, home and office.
