Xtra Effort observations:

  • Hot technologies: product costing software, trade promotion and pricing management software, cyber security software, software for P&C insurance companies, master data management software, consumer analytic (via AI) software for retailers
  • Locations: all major hubs
  • AI,Machine Learning, and IoT continue to be embedded into lots of purpose built SaaS applications  (not just sold as independent platforms)
  • Manufacturers are being targeted with increasing frequency by technology companies for use cases related to product design, physical asset maintenance, and supply chain
  • Field Sales compensation, a mixed message: This particular snapshot in time does not represent an abundance of $150k base salaries, however we see plenty of field sales professionals with $140k to $150k base salaries. Yet there are still quality companies hiring quality talent at $130k+- base salaries, per this snapshot. The “devil is often in the details” relative to demand generation support, historical team quota achievement, on target earnings, territory/named accounts, etc.
