The Opportunity 

Our mission is to change the way the world works by democratizing AI for every business, and to build a great company – that everyone loves being a part of.

It’s an incredibly exciting time at Peak; we’re growing rapidly off the back of our $75m Series C funding round (2021), led by SoftBank, and we have very ambitious plans for the future.

Peak is an AI company that provides the platform, application and services to help businesses harness the potential of AI to grow revenues, increase profits and efficiencies. 

All of this means that we’re expanding our team, with huge growth plans in place. But we know that culture and success come hand in hand, so creating and protecting an amazing company culture that’s true to our values remains really important to Peak and our mission.

Purpose of the pre-sales role:

We are looking for commercially-minded individuals who can operate at the forefront of the AI era and help executives within some of the world’s most successful businesses shape their AI future.
