Position Summary

Workato is looking for a Director, Sales Enablement from a top performing B2B software company to take our Commercial Sales teams to the next level. You’re proud of the results you’ve achieved, but you’re looking for a builder role in a smaller, hyper-growth startup. You’ll drive repeatable and scalable execution by drawing on your vast experience with sales methodologies, expansion, and complex sales.

You’ll be responsible for onboarding and ongoing Enablement programs for our global Commercial Account Executive teams. As a champion for personal development, you’ll challenge our AE's to get 1% better every day through learning, role plays, application of new skills, and coaching. You’re the kind of leader who has insight into what’s really happening in the field, and can micro target interventions that move the metrics that most impact productivity.

You recognize that the true Way is through partnership with our AE Managers and enabling them to hire better, drive accountability, and excel as coaches. You are laser-focused on these team leaders, their strengths and opportunities, and how to best help them attain confidence and success. You’ll also help us keep our Sales culture of constant improvement and teamwork alive as we scale. 

You’ll work with our more tenured Account Executives, to get them to the next level of skills and execution. Through your guidance, they’ll learn how to master complex sales, enable the champion to sell internally, and strategize to win large, competitive opportunities at must win accounts. You'll crack the code on how to drive expansion business and create the repeatable expansion plays that enable Workato to scale.

You’ll be constantly seeking feedback and opportunities to get better, growing these programs into a world class experience with measurable outcomes. You are highly competitive, instilling a sense of fun and excitement into the learning process, and ensuring Workato’s and our customers’ success for the long term.

  • Drive Sales initiatives like Pipe Gen Mondays, Demo Days, and certification programs.

  • Make learning easy and engaging, so that the right behaviors get adopted and become muscle memory

  • Constantly improve the AE experience, as measured by feedback and outcomes for our more tenured AE's

  • Create programs to engage our highest performers in growing into what’s next in their careers  (Enterprise Sales, Sales Management, … even Sales Enablement!)

  • Work with the larger Enablement team on projects like Sales Kickoff, Go-to-Market All Hands calls, strategic initiatives, and training events.
