About the Role

Our robust set of solutions and elite team of experts help our clients solve an array of security challenges. As an Enterprise Account Executive, you’ll sell our full portfolio—including our industry-leading Managed Security Services and Managed Detection & Response—to some of our biggest current and potential clients. Our threat hunters are the best in the industry, and we’re looking for an equally aggressive hunter to win new enterprise accounts and grow our revenue.


We’re always evolving and adapting, so you’ll need to be able to solve practical problems and adjust for variables amid some ambiguity. You’ll also have a lot of autonomy, but you should feel equally comfortable collaborating with others and leaning in to help achieve our sales plan. Reporting to a V.P. of Sales, you’ll have high visibility to other senior leaders, as well as the support of our Sales Engineering team, Account General Managers, Product Specialists and Product Managers.
