Account Executive

Starfish Storage is a dynamic startup creating enterprise software that enables organizations to manage massive unstructured data growth. Our mission is to enable organizations to leverage their data assets in pursuit of their own missions – whether that’s creating the next great blockbuster movie, curing a disease, or managing large business infrastructures which drive economies. Our clients are the most respected organizations in their industries – media and entertainment, research computing, higher education, and the Federal government.

This is a highly unusual opportunity because we have a set of existing clients already even though we have just hired our first salesperson. So, you can work for a newly-forming sales organization within a company with an established, enterprise-class technology.

We're looking for someone with at least a few years of technology sales experience who is passionate about the transformative nature of technology. You will be building relationships with technical and scientific clients who need technology to enable their pursuits, not be their pursuit.

Because we are an established startup, you will have ample opportunity to get involved in a wide range of activities and have growth paths into other positions in the company over time.

Some travel will be required but most of your work will be done from our headquarters in Waltham, MA where this role will be based.

Requirements
Qualified applicants must have:
  • Enterprise IT technology sales experience, ideally software (3+ years)
  • Familiarity with server, networking and storage technologies

  • Excellent written communication skills
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to be in our Waltham, MA headquarters within 45 minutes.
  • Bachelor’s degree – ideally in engineering or science
  • Current authorization (or will soon be authorized) to work in the United States on a full-time basis
