Get ready to meet Gleb, a biotech enthusiast turned sales maverick. In this post, we'll follow him as he steps out of his comfort zone, overcomes financial hardships, and navigates the thrilling world of tech sales. From his first contact with hyrise scrolling through instagram, to shining in his role as an Account Executive at Revolut, Gleb's story is a testament to the power of perseverance, boldness, and continuous learning.
"I love mixed martial arts, theater, learning new things, exploring my limits, cooking delicious food, nature, science, and high-quality conversations with kind people."
Gleb is one of those people hard to describe in writing. With a background in biotech and a million-dollar mind, he had wonderful ideas - but struggled to sell them. Life was tough; he lived with his mom in a shared flat, the financial challenges seemingly never-ending.
During an average scroll through Instagram, an ad caught Gleb's attention - hyrise.
After researching a little about tech sales, he was intrigued. He saw a huge opportunity to directly help great products and innovative companies with unrealized potential to thrive. Gleb admits he didn’t have high hopes as he completed our application process. It seemed too good to be true.
Little did he know, this would mark a turning point in his life.
Gleb’s experience with hyrise
Hyrise acted as the springboard for Gleb, offering him an avenue to showcase his talents and fast-track his career. His resilience and commitment paid off when he secured a position as “Enterprise Sales Development” at one of our trusted hiring partners: Operations1.
Equipped with our onboarding training and the backing of his new employer, Gleb dove headfirst into the world of sales. Dialing numbers became second nature as he aimed to help prospects solve problems and bring them closer to the solutions he offered.
Gleb quickly became a top performer at his company. In addition to his cold-calling skills, he consistently secured crucial meetings with high-level executives. His secret sauce?
"Treat every interaction as precious, because every minute of your clients time matters."
