Microsoft on the hunt for road warriors

02 Feb 10

As a part of its initiative to deliver Microsoft Office 2010 to New Zealand businesses, Microsoft is seeking five road warriors for four-month contracts.

Working for Ingram Micro and Express Data to support Office 2010 sales, each road warrior will visit 200 medium-sized businesses around the country to pitch the software while sharing their experiences via social media.

Microsoft acknowledges the busy pace and sales targets, but maintains that for the right person it will provide a hefty paycheck and offer a chance to demonstrate sales abilities.

Applications close on February 18th and selected individuals will be invited to a briefing session on February 22nd to receive more information. Final candidates will lead presentations before a panel of judges on March 2nd to determine the five road warriors.

“We want to provide a fun, personalised way for customers to find out more about the innovation in Office 2010, and with the Road Warrior programme, we’re starting to get out there and do just that. It’s a tremendous opportunity for the right person.”

Candidates can find more information and an application pack at
