YOUR MISSION
We’re growing faster than ever and are on the lookout for a talented Account Executive to join our team. We’ve proven airfocus is an up and coming industry leader without a single salesperson until this year. Now, with thousands of users from customers like Shopify or The Washington Post, it’s time to add fuel to the fire and scale up sales alongside our organic product-led growth!

As one of our first sales hires, you will be the driving force for accelerating our growth by partnering up with companies of all sizes to understand their product development philosophy and introducing them to our all-in-one product management platform.

You will work directly with the founders as a front line problem solver and you’ll work hands-on to evolve a sales system based around product and demos into something rock solid that scales.

If you are passionate about closing deals and looking for a strategic position where you can make a tremendous impact at a fast-growing startup, this is the right opportunity for you.

  • Identify customer segments and new opportunities to improve the quality of the sales pipeline.
