Are you looking for a role where you can develop, enable and grow successful strategic partner relationships? We are seeking someone who will own, lead, build and manage regionally a partner eco-system with a focus on key strategic partnerships that will drive growth for the company.

In addition, the Microsoft partnership is the most significant partnership that needs to be developed and focused on as it can drive the highest growth trajectory for AvePoint. In addition, we do want to broaden our partnership relationships where they can deliver deployment services around our products outside the basic migration offerings and increase the technical enablement of their consultants. 

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Identifying and prioritizing the relationships with partners that will ultimately drive increased sourced pipeline and bookings for AvePoint
