Red Gate 13th Birthday

Award winning Red Gate Software partner with RTA


Red Gate SoftwareGlobal Technology Company Red Gate Software has partnered with Raw Talent Academy as they continue with ambitious growth plans, including expanding their sales team.

Red Gate has multiple ‘Inside Sales’ Representative’ positions available and the partnership will see the creation of an Academy, run by Raw Talent Academy, which will source the top talent to attend an Audition Day on the 4th October 2013 at Red Gate’s Cambridge office.

Founded in 1999, Red Gate has grown from a start-up to being an established software provider with offices across the world and tools used by over 650,000 IT professionals. Red Gate’s philosophy is to design highly usable, reliable tools which elegantly solve the problems that developers and database administrators face every day.

Over the next 6 weeks, Raw Talent Academy – founded by Apprentice Winner Lee McQueen – will look to uncover the brightest and best candidates before bringing them to a unique Audition Day. The day will see up to 20 candidates take part in real life business tasks while being assessed by Red Gate’s Sales Management Team. Interested in working with graduates as well as those who already have sales experience, this innovative approach to recruitment sees the candidates judged on their ability and how they perform, not just on their CV or experience alone.

Raw Talent Academy Director Lee McQueen stressed how good an opportunity he felt this is by saying; “Red Gate are a fantastic company, they have been repeatedly recognised by The Sunday Times as one of the top 100 places to work in the UK and have an unrivalled office culture.

“Their focus on staff development means candidates with the right attitude and ability to learn quickly will have the chance to start a rewarding career with a leading software company.”

Simon Johnson, Red Gate’s EMEA Sales Manager says “Red Gate Sales is an exciting place to work. Over the past several years we have seen consistent growth across our full product stack, putting us as major players in all the markets that we are part of. We are the market leaders in the SQL tools market.

“Red Gate Sales is no ordinary sales function. We are a high performing team, focussed on continuous improvement. We are also highly focussed on developing our people, and delivering the best solutions for our customers.

“We are looking for new members to grow our team further, and if you are ready to really challenge yourself by joining a great Sales team, and a market leading software development company, then we want to see you.”
