Easier and more reliable mobile app releases for teams.
Runway is building a first-of-its-kind platform for teams to track, automate, and collaborate on their mobile app releases. The platform is already used by industry-leading mobile teams to ship some of your favorite apps for food delivery, fitness, finance, and more!
We’re a small but mighty team of ex-mobile engineers building tools for mobile teams – and there’s a lot to do! Everyone on the team works hard, learns something new every day, and gets things done. We have a strong culture of transparency and collaboration, and you won’t be working away in a silo. You’ll be valued, respected, and your work will matter.
We’re a distributed team spread across multiple continents, with an NYC center of gravity.
This founding sales hire will work very closely with the CEO, leading the transition away from founder-led sales and building out processes and foundations for a dedicated sales org. The role will form a critical part of our core team and overall strategy over the next phase of Runway’s growth. There will be plenty of opportunities for collaboration across the company, and this role can have a large impact on other areas of the business: customer success, marketing, product and support.
This is an ideal role for an experienced sales profile who enjoys the opportunity to fully own and build a playbook from the ground up, who wants to have an outsized impact at an early stage startup, and who can excel in fast-paced environments with plenty of ambiguity.
You are excited by the idea of stepping into a role for which no rule book or baselines exist, where you’ll get to pursue opportunities and build a process with a lot of autonomy and empowerment.
You are willing to get your hands dirty with the full scope of the sales cycle, including building up your own pipeline and book of business.
You have experience in B2B SaaS, specifically in selling developer tools and working with mid-market and enterprise deals.
You are empathetic and curious about our customer context, with an eagerness to learn about their goals, challenges and solutions.
You are comfortable with modern sales tools, you are organized and show attention to detail, and you realize the value of thorough data collection and documentation.
You are hardworking and a self-starter.

Runway is building a first-of-its-kind tool for teams to track, automate, and collaborate on their mobile app releases.
Managing mobile app updates has typically been a frustrating and costly exercise of performing tasks across a range of tools (e.g., GitHub, Jira, your CI environment, the command line), herding cats on Slack to get everyone on the same page, and manually updating a 50-line release spreadsheet. And there’s often even more inefficiency than teams realize, from a steady drip of small tasks and context-switching.
The Runway team has firsthand experience with the problem. We’ve designed, developed, and released native mobile apps at companies like Rent the Runway, Kickstarter, and ClassPass, and we came to recognize that there was an opportunity to streamline and automate much of the process; to go far beyond traditional CI/CD workflows in fostering meaningful collaboration, de-risking development, and empowering teams to spend their time building great features instead of managing releases.
