How to make the jump to big tech/solution sales. Currently in a Nordic SaaS been top performing AE and in team lead. But i can hardly make it to interviews with big companies like Microsoft. The only one I scored is a Gartner interview. One downside is that I only speak English and want to find a position in Europe. Any suggestion?

reach out to people at the companies you want to work at to network the way you might reach out to companies in your own sales cycle. having an employee referral helps a lot and they can assist in the interview process

I agree with this, reach out to networks and also consider applying in London - most of the big teams are there and I think there's a lot more scope

If you are already in SaaS you are off to a good start! It's just very competitive. Keep at it, make connections here and on LinkedIn

Reach out to me if you need a referral.
