A bit about Scalyr

Scalyr’s mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. Our founder, Steve Newman, cofounded Writely (aka Google Docs). Frustrated by the fact that visibility tools – even Google’s in-house tools – weren’t keeping up, Steve started Scalyr to create a better solution. It’s lightning fast, feature-rich and customers love it. The opportunity in front of us is huge and we are still in the very early days. This is going to be one of those companies where people will look back and say “I wish I’d been there when…” well, this is your chance to be part of “when”.

Your role & goal

Finding new SMB and Mid-Market customers for Scalyr is the name of the game of this inside sales role. Those we have love us, and if given enough time, we're confident the whole tech world would find us, try us, and love us too. But we're impatient, so we're building a sales team to grow that customer base now. This is the opportunity to be one of the early core members of that sales team.

We're looking for someone to join our team who:

  • Loves technology and goes the extra mile to understand how it works
  • Is passionate about the success of our customers
  • Is comfortable building a territory from scratch by any means necessary
  • Smart enough to work at top companies, but you’re picky about finding the right role
  • Experienced, but you also like to learn new things
  • Enjoys working with smart people and have fun building something great

More specifically, you should have:

  • 10+ years of experience in technology sales with quota carrying experience.
  • Consistent track record of exceeding quota
  • Experience working in complex sales cycles in technical environments with deals in the seven figure range
  • Know how to build a pipeline, manage a territory, and understand the complexities of selling to engineers
  • Be comfortable selling to the entire engineering organization; CTOs to junior engineers
  • Have a strong understanding of the enterprise sales cycle and how to manage deals through completion
  • Be ambitious. Have you started your own business? If you know how to fail fast and learn then fantastic
  • Empathy – you need to come as close to walking in our customers’ shoes as possible
  • Phenomenal phone and writing skills, and are enthusiastic while still remaining authentic

Your benefits:

  • Competitive salary & equity at a fast growing startup
  • Fully funded comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • 401k
  • Free lunch
  • Flexible schedule
  • Unlimited vacations
  • Paid parental leave
  • Optional company hikes a couple days per week
  • Easygoing, low-stress, considerate and fun office environment
  • Whatever equipment you need to get the job done
