✍🏽 About Writer

AI your people will love. That's our vision, and it contains multitudes :-)


your people

will love.

We're filling a big need for generative AI built ground-up for the needs of enterprises and embraced by their teams. As generative AI became a board-level initiative almost overnight for most enterprises, our market matured dramatically and we benefit from that tailwind. Our product is highly differentiated, our roadmap is transformative, and our customers are happy and vocal.

📐 About this role

We’re looking for a collaborative and builder-oriented enterprise sales rep experienced at helping prospective customers at large companies navigate the evaluation, business case development, and procurement of transformative technology.

Your objective will be to help convert enterprise prospects (6k+ FTE, although tilted towards Fortune 1000) who are active in our trials or who request a sales demo from our website or within our product. While most of your pipeline will come inbound, you'll also be responsible for generating pipeline from ideal customer profile (ICP) accounts within your account set.

Your positivity, sense of curiosity, and ability to create champions from early adopters in the AI space will help shape our entire culture.

You'll be reporting to our Head of Sales.

  • Comfortable asking the tough questions, working cross-departmentally, and working under high pressure
