The Opportunity

Our Sales org is committed to understanding the needs and challenges of our customers, identifying creative and strategic ways that we can help solve their problems, and selling them our solutions when we can add value. Account Executives (AE) are responsible for understanding our customers and what drives their success, effectively communicating and demonstrating the value of Buildout solutions, and aligning the right solution to solve for the unique challenges of each customer. As an AE, you will manage the full sales cycle, from prospecting to running product demonstrations, to closing new business and handing off to the appropriate team for the next stage of the customer journey. Reporting to the Director of Sales, you will be joining a team that loves to brainstorm, to collaborate, to ferret down into their prospect’s problems, and a team that loves to win.
