About The Opportunity:

You’re passionate about winning market battles and solving business mysteries.

As the lead competitive analyst at a fast-growing software company, you’ll be responsible for understanding our competitive landscape around the world. You’ll study our current and future competitors – not just what they do, but how they’re organized and how they think. Using this information, you’ll help us determine how to serve customers better than they do. Specific activities include:

  • With the VP of market strategy, identify and prioritize both current and emerging competitors in a fast-changing market
  • Find creative, ethical ways to experience competitive products hands-on and research competitive pricing and terms of business
  • Attend conferences and interact with influencers and customers to monitor competitive activity
  • Based on your research, identify our advantages and vulnerabilities relative to competitors
  • Create documents, messaging, and training that help our sales and marketing teams succeed
  • Respond to competitive questions and information requests from our customer-facing teams
  • Participate in sales calls to help customers understand our value
  • Share your learnings with our product and customer success teams, to help guide their offerings

 

What we’re looking for:

This is a great role for someone who has customer-facing experience in our market or a related market, and who wants to move in a more strategic career direction. Your background could include customer success, support, sales engineering, or other customer-facing roles, but that’s not required. What you must have is a good understanding of how B2B customers think, a passion for our space, and the willingness to keep digging until you find the truth behind the hype. Specifically, you need...

  • At least five years of relevant experience with a strong background in SaaS
  • Ability to shift quickly between multiple priorities, and balance fire drills against longer-term projects
  • Excellent customer empathy
  • Detail orientation
  • ​​​​​​​A great understanding of the needs and processes of B2B sales teams
  • Excellent presentation and writing skills, with a commitment to accuracy
  • Proven ability to work effectively with cross functional teams
  • Strong business ethics (you are a researcher, not a spy)
  • Experience in rapidly-scaling companies is a plus
  • International experience is a huge plus
  • We’re willing to consider a great candidate who’s based anywhere, but it’s helpful if you live where we have offices: Atlanta, the San Francisco Bay Area, Edinburgh, or Singapore

 

Note that this is not an entry level position. We’re looking for an experienced individual who’s passionate about helping a business win the right way, by dramatically improving the lives of customers.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
