We’re looking for a customer-centric and product-focused sales specialist who is passionate about creating a sales experience that is valuable, educational and frictionless.
This position will see the successful candidate join our Sales Success team and help us develop new sales initiatives that are personable and educational, but also scalable.

Our ideal team member for this role is numbers-oriented, empathetic, and adaptable to working with a high volume of leads. You should be as comfortable thinking through how to approach Enterprise sales with high-touch, personable interactions that educate our leads, as you are in devising self-service experiences for SMBs.

- Developing plans for identifying and scaling expansion opportunities.
- Conveying prospective customer needs to product managers and product teams.
- Working closely with Finance, Legal and DevOps to ensure the team is efficiently issuing and managing estimates, invoices, legal agreements and security documents.

- Partnering with Marketing to create and drive market specific programs and lead generation campaigns.
- Learning and being ahead of the curve of Saas sales and the Analytics industry.
