Requirements

  • At least 3+ years of technology-based enterprise sales experience; SaaS experience is a must
  • Knowledge of the supply-chain and logistics space strongly preferred (JDA, Oracle, Manhattan, SAP etc.). Complex Enterprise Software experience a must.
  • Track record of over-achieving quota (consistently top 10-20% of company) in past positions

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started with FourKites as executive admin support & office manager. Several months into the role, I discussed growth opportunities with my manager and expressed an interest in moving into the HR function. The company supported my growth by sponsoring my SHRM certification and at my 1yr anniversary, I officially transitioned into a HR role!
