SDR_Recruitment_PHASE 4

It all started with two founders and a big idea...

The connected accounting cloud platform created by experienced accountants and software experts.

These are exciting times for accountants. Technology has changed bookkeeping forever. While bookkeeping has been transformed the day-to-day life of the accountant has yet to see the same change. Until now.


"I absolutely loved being an SDR. I then became the SDR Team Lead and now work in the Sales Enablement team to help train and onboard the entire commercial organisation.

At Silverfin, it's all about proving yourself and working your way up. Communication is key."

Elie Daverio, SDR to Sales Enablement Executive

“I’m so happy to be a Customer Success Manager just a year and a half after being an SDR. I made it clear to my manager that I wanted to stick to a sales type role but being a CSM is more indirect. It’s all about perseverance, patience and waiting for the right opportunity.”

Linda Tilkin, SDR to Customer Success Manager

"Being an SDR taught me a lot. From tenacity to dealing with objections, and the most fun part - consultative selling, advising potential clients how to solve their business problems with our technology. 

Don't be afraid to put yourself out there and work on some side projects on topics that interest you as well. It's all about taking initiative and being proactive with what you want your future at Silverfin to look like."

Roxanne Taku, SDR to Strategic Business Associate

"Being an SDR has strengthened my core values of being persistent and thinking outside the box when it comes to sharing the Silverfin story.

My advice to anyone is always continue to develop yourself whether that is honing soft skills or learning more about the product or industry."

James Coll, SDR to Solutions Engineer
