We're building the future of internal software. You'll help pave the way.

We're making it easier for engineers to build custom, internal software. Software has transformed industries, but it's currently too expensive to plan, build, and maintain. And that's a shame, because it's so useful! Our goal is to make this large class of software faster, cheaper, and more enjoyable to build.

If you enjoy working with motivated peers, collaborating to solve challenging problems, and changing how software is built, we’d love to hear from you.

why we're looking for you

In the last year we’ve grown our revenue 5x and built a small, but mighty, sales team. We’ve learned a lot, built some process, and added many wonderful customers to the Retool community. Now we’re building scalable sales processes and adding talented Account Executives to help our prospects and customers build internal tools quickly, and with less friction.

what you'll do

We have aggressive goals, and to help us get there, you’ll own deals from start to finish. We’ll look to you to manage multiple  deals concurrently, navigate org structures, and help alleviate our prospects’ pain points by showing them the possibility, value and impact of Retool. You and our Sales Development team will build your pipeline and you’ll collaborate with our deep bench of Sales Engineers to win deals across the board. 

You’re comfortable running point on key deals, managing a book of business, and building a playbook for future team members. You’re adept at listening to, and engaging with, engineers—our buyers—and you have the know-how to navigate technical discussions and decisions. You’ll bring best practices, deep sales acumen, and a drive to close deals quickly.

who you'll work with

You’ll work with our team of Sales Engineers (who are engineers themselves!), other Account Executives, and our SDR team. You’ll dive into sales forecasting meetings, partner with our Head of Sales and leads to close deals, and work cross-functionally with Success, Marketing and Engineering teams.  

You’ll be joining a broader team of Retools who are passionate about serving our customers, enjoy collaborating to build an incredibly innovative product, and partake in some occasional-but-well-intentioned sarcasm. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

  • Identify and qualify leads and develop them into high-value opportunities
  • Build relationships and establish communications at the highest executive levels in your accounts to understand their needs and priorities, and to speed up and simplify the deal process
  • Own the closing process, including negotiations and procurement activities
  • Keep Salesforce up to date with customer information, forecasts, and pipeline data so we can learn more about our business and our sales process
  • Develop and execute a strategic territory plan to meet monthly, quarterly and annual revenue objectives
  • Work with technical stakeholders and executives to identify opportunities for Retool to accelerate Engineering within their org 
  • Partner with sales engineers and the executive team to create relationships within all levels of key accounts 
  • Collaborate with Engineering to identify and deploy new features to continuously increase the value of Retool

the skillset you'll bring:

  • Experience managing end to end SaaS sales cycles. 
  • A track record of success in driving consistent activity, pipeline development, and quota achievement.
  • Previous experience preferred in developer tools, cloud infrastructure, databases, and/or business intelligence
  • A solution-based approach to selling and the ability to manage a sales process.
  • Excellent presentation and listening skills, organization, and contact management capabilities.
  • A hands-on approach to learning technical concepts and leading technical discussions internally and externally with stakeholders of all levels.
  • A strong desire and willingness to learn and build as our product and processes evolve.
