Account Executive

  • Sales

At Expel, we believe if we take care of our employees, they will take care of our customers, and the rest will work itself out. It’s as simple as that. We have built a great place to work where the culture is truly transparent, people love what they do, and work gets appreciated. Now we’re building a sales culture that is also transparent and customer focused. A place where our customers rave about their sales team. Where they speak of trust, openness, respect and honesty. We want our customers to not only love our product but feel good about how they get treated during every interaction with us.

That’s where you come in. Do you think of them as “your” customers? You bet you do – you care about their problems, you cure their ills, when you change jobs they’ll meet with you. Maybe they need your thing, maybe they don’t, but they trust you and you’ll get 30 minutes to see if there’s a fit. Because of that relationship, your customer introduces you to new people. Relationships like that form over years, and it happens because that’s the only way you’ll do business.

You ask questions to understand problems and you enjoy being a true partner to tackle them. You’re a thoughtful sherpa, a calm voice in the night on a rocky trail, working with your customer to stay away from the steep drops. Your customers walk with you because they know you only sell products you believe in, products you stand behind, aspirin for the headache they actually have. We know that no matter how good a product is, someone has to guide the sales process – and you excel at this.

You haven’t sold just any enterprise product, you’ve sold information security products. It’s a tangled, messy market with confusing, overlapping messages and frequently unclear value propositions. “Market-leading, best-of-breed, next-gen Threat-tron 9000 with a live pew-pew map finds the badness, omg be afraid!” That’s all fear-selling nonsense, and that is not how you do business.

Did you nod your head a few times while reading this? If so, we’d love to hear from you. You’re our kind of seller.
