About the role

Teleport enables engineers to quickly access any computing resource anywhere on the planet. Our open source products provide a Unified Access Plane for developers and security professionals seeking to simplify secure access to servers, applications, and data across all environments. Teleport is built by Gravitational, a Y-Combinator company that is well funded by additional top-tier investors and growing quickly. We value our craft, a work-life balance and embrace a culture of mutual respect.

Our sales team is dedicated to personal development and team success. We strive to get better at our craft and value humility, curiosity, resilience, and a sense of humor.

We need people who can help us build and scale our revenue engine.

Account Executives will execute on regional plans, including the identification of core customers and mapping the benefits of our solutions to solve customer challenges.

We're looking for people who want to build something from the ground up and aren't afraid of an entrepreneurial setting.

We need someone who will:

  • Communicate effectively with engineering, InfoSec teams, and business stakeholders.

  • Develop a territory plan and relentlessly execute against it in order to exceed your quota.

  • Understand the nuances of selling open source technology.

  • Help us foster our open source community and grow our commercial offering.

  • Identify and excite champions at your key accounts so they become your executive sponsors.

  • Navigate complex deals involving several stakeholders across engineering and InfoSec without coming across as "Salesy."

  • Mentor our Sales Development Reps. You will collaborate with them in order to break into your target accounts.

  • Strong listening and storytelling skills.

  • Ensure prospects feel positive about their interactions with you regardless of if they decide to purchase our enterprise solutions.

  • Provide structured customer feedback to our product and engineering teams so we can continue to elevate our offerings.
