  • Positions available in both our headquarters as well as our several satellite sales offices.
  • Flexibility to provide input into office location to reduce your travel times, for new territories, or potentially work from home.
  • Custom tailored positions will occasionally be considered for candidates that are seeking primarily to focus on leveraging an exceptional rolodex rather than a typical sales position.

Position Overview:

  • Opportunity to be rewarded for introducing company-wide sales initiatives (for example: lunch-n-learns, golf tournaments, and whatever your experience shows is something we should start).
  • Supported by other departments that are involved in the presales cycle including business analysts, infrastructure analysts, and occasionally the project managers.
  • Being a trusted advisor to clients and prospects, spotting opportunities within the client's stories for win-wins.

About The Work Environment:

  • Friendly, non-threatening, and non-political environment.

  • Private nap rooms for isolated thinking time or for taking a nap if you didn’t sleep well last night.
