RStudio Enterprise Advocate – Home office based (US or Europe) or Boston Office
RStudio develops open source and enterprise-ready solutions for R, the popular statistical programming language used by data scientists all over the world. We are a US based, geographically distributed, hands-on team of people, passionate about creating a company that contributes to the remarkable R tool chain in a sustainable way.
Data Science and use of the R statistical language are exploding. RStudio customers love the productivity advantages delivered by our products, which is why we have over a million users. Build your career educating prospects on the newest capabilities and helping enterprises learn how their analytics teams can leverage RStudio in a commercial setting.
You will be working by email, web conference and phone to inform and inspire analytics teams who are already using RStudio open source offerings. Our Enterprise Advocates discuss and demonstrate the latest R related technologies like Shiny, R Markdown and Connect while helping enterprises to realize their value. Our lead flow is primarily inbound and success is driven by managing a large number of opportunities to closure efficiently. We make extensive use of Salesforce.com and other productivity tools to ensure consistent and effective prospect engagement. This is a sales role with a difference: we sell by educating prospects, giving them access to our products, and helping them through the purchasing process.
Ideal candidates will have experience with a data science technology or the R language specifically. A passion for working with customers and a curiosity for learning the technology, perhaps including enrolling in R language training, are desired.
Working at RStudio:
People who thrive at RStudio are relatively technical for their line of work so that they can be hands on with the tools of their trade and can appreciate, if not actually do, what we and our customers do. They often have experience at both small and large companies where they wore many hats or held a variety of positions, giving them a broader perspective than the role they are in and an understanding of how it might evolve. They are definitely comfortable with change and ambiguity, require little management, and collaborate easily with anyone at any “level” in the company.
RStudio offers a unique opportunity to join a high-caliber team prepared to accelerate a successful business. We are seeking smart, thoughtful, highly motivated people who can work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment while being kind and responsive to each other, partners, and customers. We are an organization that values talent, humility, and hard work over hierarchy.
