Liquid Instruments makes technology for students, engineers, and scientists to enable them to learn, create, and discover. Founded by a team of scientists at the Australian National University and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, our team developed ultra-sensitive instrumentation for measuring gravitational waves and has deep expertise in high-speed digital signal processing. We used the technology to create a new breed of software-defined instrumentation for test and measurement that enables users to acquire data, generate signals and control their experiments. Our platforms combine the processing power and reconfigurability of an FPGA with intuitive user interfaces, delivering a breakthrough combination of versatility, performance, and cost.

Liquid Instruments is based in Canberra, Australia and San Diego, California, where we have grown from an idea to a 50-person team. We are continuing to grow our sales team and are looking for start-up minded individuals who are familiar with our space. Our Account Managers will work within the Sales team to establish, grow, and maintain sales and partnership opportunities for research, commercial, industrial, and education applications. The Account Manager will also perform a wide variety of client facing and administrative tasks.

The role will report to the Director of Sales, North America and is based out of our San Diego office (remote options will be considered).

What you’d be working on:

  • Build long-term relationships with clients from onboarding to advising them throughout their customer lifecycle.
  • Own an expansion quota for our current customer base targeted within the test and measurement for research, industry, and education space.
  • Work with our Sales Development Representatives to help sign new clients
  • Confidently present our full product suite to existing customers to own upsell and cross-sell.
  • Identify opportunities to expand revenue from current customers through understanding long-term strategic business goals.
  • Maintain constant contact with clients, ensuring that accounts are in good standing and customers are updated on product offerings.

  • Experience with a Sales CRM: HubSpot, Salesforce, etc.
