About the Role

We're looking for a Commercial Account Executive, based in the UK, to cover the Nordics Region (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark).  We believe that individuals in this role can talk about the value of the company, as opposed to how they close the deal.

After 60 days, you'll be competent in account strategy & mapping. You will work with your manager to set revenue targets to reach your sales goals. You will also have started closing smaller size or existing deals that are already in flow.

After 3 months, you will have started doubling your pipeline & will be working on closing some of your later stage opportunities while targeting more complex deals. As you gain momentum at Cockroach Labs, you will also increase your sales pipeline & help grow the overall revenue of Cockroach Labs.
