We are looking for a deeply technical and strategic Technical Account Manager (TAM), to join us on the West coast. As a Technical Account Manager, you will drive maximum adoption of Sysdig’s products and identify service expansion opportunities via high value relationships with our customers, ensuring they remain successful by realizing the full value of their investment with us.

Sysdig is the cloud-native intelligence company, and we’re at the forefront of the container and microservices adoption in the enterprise. We’re the people who are making reliable, secure containers a reality for enterprises everywhere.

We're passionate about solving the most complex operational challenges that companies face when they transition to Kubernetes, Docker, and cloud-native architectures at a massive scale. We offer the best of both worlds: we're a well-funded startup ($121.5 million) with a 300+ enterprise customer base (300 and counting). And we're a great place to work too -- we were awarded the 2019 Bay Area Best Places to Work award from San Francisco Business Times and the Silicon Valley Business Journal.

Sysdig was born from open source, so your work here will cross the divide between developer-led OSS and battle-tested commercial software at scale.

Falco, our open source container security project is now a part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and rapidly scaling. We’re big fans of Prometheus too!

We are looking for a Technical Account Manager who will take the reins after a deal is closed effectively becoming the customer's partner to achieving their desired outcomes and business goals.

One size does not fit all as our Technical Account Managers prioritize effectively applying different models for high touch and other profiles for efficiency.
