This job is no longer accepting applications.
There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.
Snowflake is looking for talented and energetic individuals who are motivated and driven. We are a fast-paced, rapid-growth late stage start-up disrupting the data platform industry. Success on our sales development team hinges on a propensity for action and productive collaboration with the sales and marketing teams. It is a strong building block for a long-term career in technology sales. We guarantee that this relationship will be a two way street where we will invest the time and resources into your success which will enable the sales development organization to accomplish its mission: Take Snowflake to $1B and beyond by building, driving, and accelerating quality pipeline and talent. Our goal is to empower you to be a master of your craft and enable you to pursue future opportunities within Snowflake or elsewhere.
At Snowflake, Embracing Each Others’ Differences is a core value of our organization. We recognize and appreciate the importance of creating an environment in which all employees feel valued, included, and empowered to do their best work and bring great ideas to the table.
