  • Collaborate cross-functionally with our Customer Engineering, Product, Legal and Engineering teams to successfully drive technically unique or complex Enterprise deals forward to completion
  • Work with our product team to be the voice of the customer and bring market insights to our roadmap
  • Deliver customer feedback to our teammates, including our engineers (who are the most customer-driven engineers you'll ever see--they care about making customers happy and closing deals!)


  • 5+ years enterprise technical sales experience, SaaS preferred
  • Proven track record of exceeding sales quotas, while leading with empathy
  • Experience selling products with ASP >= $100k
  • Stellar interpersonal, presentation, verbal, and written communication skills, across all levels and personas (be it with a developer, a CTO, another salesperson, or anyone in-between)
  • Passionate about our mission and the potential for developers to improve the world


  • Selling developer products and working closely with developers
  • Proficiency with software development concepts
  • Converting freemium or trial usage to large commercial contracts
  • Experience with complex multi-year contracts
  • Proficiency with security, licensing, and compliance requirements
