Are you a shown outside/field enterprise seller with a history of exceeding sales quota and experience selling to technical DevOps or Infrastructure buyers (SVP Eng / CTO / Engineering Managers)? Are you looking for the next step in your career? If so, we've got a perfect opportunity for you:

Armory is looking to hire a Senior outside/field sales account executive. You’ll be working closely with the founders to help build out our sales process, structure and team.

Are you someone with proven experience selling at the executive level of Global 2,000 enterprises. Experience working at companies that focus on devops or other infrastructure tooling is a huge plus. Someone that has previously sold to engineering managers and engineering leaders (SVP Eng, CTO) and is comfortable running a solutions-based, technical selling process. We want sophisticated sellers who are great at matching customer needs with the value Armory can provide. We are not looking for coin-operated, high pressure sellers. Huge bonus if you have a computer science, engineering or mathematics degree and/or have previously been an application developer or sales engineer.

We are commercializing an open-source project and there is plenty of inbound demand coming from the OSS community, we need sellers who can take interested leads on a customer journey of qualification, discovery, evaluation, and technical fit, while successfully solving for the needs of the champion(typically an engineering manager) and the buyer(typically an engineering leader). Part of your role will be putting sales best-practices into place, including discipline around our CRM and high touch points, to better service that demand. If this describes you, we’d love to talk. 

Do you have experience with some or most of the below?
* 10 years of selling experience (Sales Engineer experience applies)
* Grown a territory
* Experience selling to executive level buyers in the field
* Previously worked as an Enterprise Account Executive at a company in the devops or infrastructure space

* Knows how to run and manage a tight CRM-based deal funnel
* Enjoys moving deals through the funnel
* Is excited to work on a variable comp basis to align comp w/ sales output
* Is excited to tell Armory’s story and find companies that want to ship better software, faster

Does the following also apply to you? Let us know!
* Is passionate about handling and growing an enterprise sales team over time
* Has previously worked as an application developer and/or has an engineering, computer science or mathematics degree
* Familiar with the suite of sales tools we already use: Salesforce, Mixmax or Outreach, Slack, Intercom, Contract systems like: pandadoc, docusign
* Has an interest in sales operations, specifically in building out sales & marketing automation tools to make his/her role more effective, and scaling those as the sales team grows
* Has a history of working closely with product marketing and marketing automation functions to craft a seamless demand gen + selling workflow

Everyone at Armory works reasonable, flexible hours. We look for people who are thoughtful, can break down problems, work individually sometimes, and in pairs or teams at other times. You are trusted to work on your own but ask for help when you are blocked. Empathy for your coworkers and our customers is a meaningful part of success here. As an early stage startup, most people wear many hats. We'll work with you to find the balance of what you want to do, what you are good at, and how that fits in with the company goals.
