As a Director of Strategic Accounts (DSA) on the Tanium field sales team, you will be responsible for generating opportunities to position the Tanium platform within an assigned territory and/or accounts.

  • Articulate the value of the Tanium platform to decision makers and expertly manage the complex sales cycle
  • Nurture and develop relationships within the assigned territory and/or accounts, presenting to the C-suite the value of the Tanium platform

  • Generate appropriate sales development activity to ensure healthy pipeline management
  • Accurately forecast, maintaining excellent SFDC hygiene
  • Conduct online webinars or in-person presentations to generate qualified leads
  • Travel as needed

We’re looking for someone with:

  • Significant enterprise software sales experience, generating and closing large & complex software transactions with the biggest customers in the region
  • A strong team mentality - selling is a team sport at Tanium, where managing and using virtual resources to tackle large and complex sales cycles is a must have skill
  • Proven track record of exceeding quota
  • Experience calling on and presenting to C-Suite level contacts
  • The ability to evangelize and build new business opportunities within an assigned territory and/or accounts.
