  • Support sales and partners with focused training and sales artifacts (FAQs, positioning guides and objection handling)

 

Qualifications:

  • 6+ years of technical experience with databases or data warehouses. Candidates can come from a variety of backgrounds including marketing, sales engineering, product management or engineering.

Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
