About Us

Esko is the worldwide market leader with software for packaging buyers, designers and manufacturers and hardware products for the packaging, label, sign and display industries. With Headquarters in Gent - Belgium, Esko employs around 1,500 people worldwide. Its global sales and support organization covers Europe, the Americas, Asia/Pacific and Japan. In our factory we produce high-quality cutting tables, which offer an all-round cutting solution for any application: from sign making, display production, sample making and short to medium rum corrugated production.


To strengthen our team we are looking for Sales Account Manager in South Africa, serving South Africa/Sub Sahara Africa who will be selling full Esko portfolio applications & solutions (SW, HW, Deployment & Care Plans) to customers!

In everyday life, we would be lost without packaging. So we need people to make it. But have you ever wondered what these people would do without the software and hardware that enables them to create packaging? That’s where Esko steps in: thanks to our solutions, companies can create packaging, signs and displays – and optimize the processes to do so.
So, yes: we’re an ICT company. But continuously being on the verge of creative innovations, we are quite different from the others. We’re ambitious and dynamic, we’re creative. And yes, we like clever and fun colleagues. So if you’re like us, we’d like to have you as our colleague! 

So if you are keen to grow your career with us, send us your CV, we look forward to hear from you!
