If you can seal $100mn business deals, Infosys wants youLast updated on Sep 22, 2018, 02:05 pm
Since 2014, Infosys has had a bad deal sealing spell, and just seems unable to close mega business deals. Meanwhile, its competitors have marched ahead.
That's why, the company is now looking for someone who can charm clients into offering the tech giant deals worth $100mn or more.
Think you've got it in you? Well, Infosys is waiting with open arms.
Details about the job opening
The tech giant is looking to hire an experienced professional in London for the role of 'Strategic Negotiator'.
Among other things, Infosys is looking to hire a candidate who "pursues and closes multiple deals of $100M+."
Of course, candidates are required to have vast experience and great managerial and leadership qualities.
Needless to say, the pay package is expected to be very high.
Infosys is going through a mega deal drought
The move comes at a time when Infosys is falling behind on client acquisition and mega deals.
After years of a mega deal drought, tech companies like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Wipro, over the past year, have sealed multiple deals worth $1bn or above.
Infosys, in comparison, hasn't penned a billion dollar deal since 2014, and has been only getting deals worth $25-30mn.
Infosys has been on the lookout for talent across markets
Consequently, Infosys has been on the lookout for people who could bring in more business.
Recently, the company appointed Padmanabha Olety and Steve Zucker as vice-presidents in its strategic pursuits team.
Olety was earlier IBM's strategic deals head, while Zucker was the sales director of IT company CSC.
Now, the company is looking for talent "across markets" as it seeks to close mega deals.
