  • Leverage the partner ecosystem to identify and deliver on key engagements.
  • Win as a team by using the internal teams (Solutions Engineering, Marketing, Business Value, Professional Services, Customer Success) to partner along the deal cycle.

You could be a great fit for this role if you have:

  • Demonstrable experience navigating complex opportunities and closing deals at the $1m ARR or more.
