You are the leader that sales representatives will follow despite all odds. You are motivating, highly disciplined, don’t need anyone else to run your numbers and reports, can maintain the respect of the reps working for you while driving them to continually higher standards.

You have been there, done that. You’ve been an incredibly successful sales representative in an enterprise field sales role. You know your stuff inside and out, from using tools like Salesforce.com, to training others in best practice sales processes and methods.

You understand what it means to work in a SaaS environment, on a month-to-month basis, constantly challenged to meet targets.

You also understand what it means to manage a team of sales reps, in a very hands-on way. You enjoy being elbow-to-elbow on a deal, and guiding their focus or developing their skills. You are a true leader and demand a lot from your team. You employ discipline, attention to detail, drive, and ensure people show up with their “A” game. You are a team player and wouldn’t ask anything of your team that you wouldn’t expect of yourself.

You are not your typical sales leader. Your customers matter just as much as your numbers. You have an intense curiosity and need to please and support the customer. This helps inform your approach to sales, knowing when to push a deal through and knowing how to be consultative. You know how to do this with both the customer and the other internal organizations at PagerDuty, who support the same goals.

You believe in utilizing great technologies to run a tight, efficient sales process.

Finally you aren’t afraid of a technical product and a technical customer. You have hands-on experience selling technical products and are someone who jumps right in, prioritizes product knowledge and will do anything you can to know this product and the customer, inside out.
