  • Maintaining a broad and deep technical understanding of the product roadmap and the underlying technologies and use cases.

  • Conducting technical workshops and onboardings, as well as pre-sales to convey product knowledge.

  • Helping the sales team to win new enterprise customers and earning commissions accordingly.

  • Genuine interest in how our customers and prospects have chosen to build their software infrastructure and enjoy helping solve their problems.

  • Very good communication skills, with the ability to explain technical concepts concisely. 

  • Great to have: Experience with SaaS products targeting enterprise customers.
