Because you belong at Twilio
The Who, What, Where and Why
Twilio is looking for a Strategic Account Executive to partner with existing key customers in the DACH (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) area to optimize and grow their Twilio use cases and find new ways for them to leverage communications in their businesses. The candidate will be responsible for building relationships deep and wide in the accounts qualifying new prospects and managing deals to closure.
You will be responsible for Twilio’s largest revenue customers, penetrating and growing their book of business. While many of the contacts in these accounts have been software engineers and product managers, the Strategic Account Executive will need to expand and build new relationships with senior line of business owners and executive stakeholders (CTOs, CIOs, CPO / VP of Product) to uncover new opportunities where Twilio can help solve the company’s pains and challenges through superior communication workflows.
You have several years of Enterprise Sales experience and a track record of personally selling and closing complex technical solutions to enterprises and software companies in excess of $100k. You’ve demonstrated success by exceeding quota on a consistent basis.
You’ve mastered creating pricing proposals, negotiating terms and managing the contract process. Ideally, you also have experience selling communications to a technical and business audience, building trust and mutual respect with technical customers and peers.
You have world-class communication skills to make complex contractual, technical, and financial details sound simple.
You have the ability to balance competing priorities and manage multiple project/deals at the same time. As an added bonus, you’ve previously sold cloud or enterprise software.
Fluency in German and English is a must.
