The spearhead to our development through acquisition

In the current market, companies in the Tech scene are realigning, and some of them (including Coveo) may be in advantageous positions, and looking to prepare for what is coming up after the storm. By either expanding the customer base, improving profitability and yes, possibly, by acquiring another company. 

As the demand for AI in digital experience is very strong, we want someone to work with our Corporate Development team and help us keep a keen eye on potential additions to the Coveo ecosystem, to help us scale and live up to that demand. So if you want to be involved first-hand in that progress, and have a say in one of the next big developments in our company's history, the opportunity doesn't get any better than this. 

As our Head of M&A, you will: 

  • Identify potential acquisition targets
  • Work on preliminary due diligence
  • Be involved in the day to day activities of our acquisition processes
  • Handle the signing and closing processes
  • Lead the integration process on multiple fronts (financial, technical, human, etc)

What we are looking for:

As you may guess, this approach will require someone that has already been into these kinds of processes, and has the skills and knowledge to support them.

Here is what will qualify you for the role

  • 5 to 8 years of experience in similar roles in the North American market
  • Experience in the SaaS market
  • Proven autonomy and intrapreneurship: we will need someone to help build this part of our processes rather than waltz through already structured paths

What would make you stand out

  • Any experiences in Equity/portfolio companies, or working as part of Corporate development processes
  • Proven communication and negotiation skills
  • Tech savviness
  • Being bilingual (English/French) can really help: after all, we are a Quebec-based company

Do you think you can bring this role to life? Or add your own color? You don’t need to check every single box; passion goes a long way and we appreciate that skillsets are transferable.

Send us your application, we want to hear from you! / Send us your application, we want to know what you're all about!
