What we’re looking for:

  • 2+ years of SaaS sales experience in a closing role
  • Curiosity for the DevOps ecosystem and some familiarity with technical concepts and their business value
  • A great teammate who'll thrive in our fluid, fast-paced, multifaceted environment
  • Demonstrate strong listening skills, concise,  effective communication, emotional intelligence and organisation
