  • Collaborate with Customers: work with our customers and our member success team to ensure an incredible experience and grow accounts.
  • Cross-functional work: share customer insights and requests back to our team to help shape our product to delight our customers.
  • Define how we work: we are a small scrappy sales team. Be a core contributor in defining our processes, how we work, and our sales culture as we scale.
  • Think outside the box: get creative! Test new sales techniques, explore new distribution channels, experiment with new practices.
