To support our continued growth, we are hiring a Sales Enablement Architect who will be a dedicated performance and efficiency partner to sales leaders within the portfolio of sales teams supported by sales enablement. As a key internal partner, the person in this role monitors and elevates sales leadership satisfaction by understanding and crafting sales team needs and requirements and working to align within and across the commercial system. The Sales Enablement Architect role is tethered between internal content, skill, technology, and tool providers and the sales teams at both strategic and tactical levels, ensuring product, marketing, sales, training, and process teams understand the business requirements of sales leadership while also working cross-functionally to craft efficiency services that meet or exceed those needs to deploy agile sales enablement solutions, especially in the middle to end of the sales process. We believe sales enablement includes three key pillars; talent enablement, message enablement, and pipeline enablement. Our enablement strategy aligns to that framework with the intent to empathize with sellers and make their work less sophisticated as well as reduce customer confusion. If you are energized by the details below, please join us on our journey.
