About the Team
The Business Development Representative (BDR) program has two goalsgenerate qualified pipeline & develop business development representatives careers. We care deeply about both goals.
We have worked purposefully over the last 2 years to increase the percentage of our new business revenue that comes from the outbound BDR team by partnering closely with our internal customers, Account Executives, to generate high quality meetings & pipeline. During that time we have also helped many BDRs grow into Account Executive & Customer Success roles. As we scale, BDRs are also starting to find homes in other roles across the Sales Engineering, Sales Operations, Marketing, & Partner teams.
While accomplishing these two goals we strive to be a team that always puts our Cloudflare hat on & focuses on the best interests of the company.
