    AltGen is collaborating with one of South Africa's rapidly growing manufacturers of Battery Energy Storage Solutions (BESS). Their remarkable entry into the South African market has surpassed even their own expectations, fueled by the exceptional quality of their products that essentially sell themselves. As their clientele expands, they are in need of experienced Business Developers to contribute to the growth and retention of their client base.

    If you're a motivated professional with a passion for sales, excellent communication skills, and a background or technical knowledge in the Renewable Energy industry, this role offers you the opportunity to make a significant impact in the realm of sustainable energy.

    Joining this dynamic company, you will be instrumental in developing new clients and nurturing existing relationships, focusing on Tier 1 Energy Storage Solutions in the South African and African markets. The Business Developer role is based in Johannesburg and entails engaging with channel partners, conducting thorough market research, delivering compelling product presentations, and leveraging technical expertise to articulate the unique advantages of their offerings.

Demonstrating a proven track record in sales and adeptness in crafting tailored strategies to address diverse customer needs, you will play a pivotal role in customer interactions, contract negotiations, and pricing proposals. Additionally, you will maintain accurate records of client interactions, technical information, and provide regular reports.
