Current Positions

International Business Development Executive

REF: 0007

Starting May 2019


Machines with Vision Ltd (MWV) is an exciting engineering/AI product company focused on developing localisation-as-a-service for use on railways, self-driving cars and mobile robotics.

Based in Edinburgh, UK, the company has over the last 3 years developed its key technology from proof-of-concepts and prototypes, and is now looking to develop commercial products from this. The company is consequently expanding, based on funding from client projects, innovation awards and an investment round.

As part of this growth the company is seeking to fill a full-time international business development role. This person will work alongside the CEO in developing and executing the company’s commercial strategy. 

Ideally this would suit an experienced, enthusiastic and pragmatic individual. There is still a predominate start-up culture in the company, so it would suit someone very much a self-starter and autonomous in their own right. There will be many open challenges and problems to overcome, but the potential opportunities and satisfaction are equally proportionate to these.


  • Working with the CEO to develop the company’s commercial strategy.

  • Working with the technical team to understand the product roadmap and technology.

  • Identify commercial opportunities.

  • Arranging meetings, preparing and giving presentations.

  • Develop and manage strategic customer relationships.

  • Close commercial deals to generate revenue.


  • At least 3 years of work experience.

  • Excellent analytical skills.

  • A good communicator who is able to work with customers.

  • An interest in travelling. 

  • Knowledge of the rail, automotive and/or robotics industries is a definite advantage.

  • Experience with sales development tools such as Sales Force, Prosper Works or Pipedrive is a bonus.

  • A degree in business or a related field is preferred but not essential where you have experience in this type of role.

  • A high level of written and spoken English is essential. Further languages would be seen favourably.  


  • Grow with us as we scale and make a difference in what we do to the future of transportation.

  • Competitive industry salary and share options.

  • Flexible working hours.

  • Central Edinburgh location.

  • Employer pension scheme.
