What would make you a good fit for this role?
- Located in the DACH region
- 1-3+ years of technical pre-sales experience, ideally with Open Source technologies, or in the Metrics/Monitoring space while we will be adding more junior folks later on, right now we just need team members that can hit the ground running.
- We’re a startup so your job duties will be varied and complex and will require strong judgment, collaboration, and leadership
- We are a remote-first company so you would need to learn to work and collaborate with an international team
- You will need first class written and oral communication skills to collaborate with our remote-first internal teams and with our worldwide customers. You will need to be able to skillfully articulate our value proposition and the technical advantages of our products
- You will love solving technical challenges and thrive on bringing creative solutions to our customers
- You should have a technical mindset and a desire to grow technically. Great candidates may be a recent grad of a coding bootcamp or have previous post-sales or engineering experience–we are excited to see what unique experiences and skill sets you bring to the table!
- You are self-motivated, initiative, creative, and maybe you’ve already done a brave thing or two in your life!
