You’ll be responsible for onboarding and ongoing Enablement programs for our global Commercial Account Executive teams.

You’ll also help us keep our Sales culture of constant improvement & teamwork alive as we scale.

You’ll work with our more tenured Account Executives, to get them to the next level of skills & execution. Through your guidance, they’ll learn how to master complex sales, enable the champion to sell internally, and strategize to win large, competitive opportunities at must win accounts. You’ll crack the code on how to drive expansion business & create the repeatable expansion plays that enable Workato to scale.

You’ll be constantly seeking feedback & opportunities to get better, growing these programs into a world class experience with measurable outcomes. You are highly competitive, instilling a sense of fun and excitement into the learning process, and ensuring Workato’s and our customers’ success for the long term.

  • Develop our AE Managers to be even more effective leaders, mentors, and coaches.
  • Build best-in-class sales skills and behaviors, especially at mid & late stages in the customer buying journey.
  • Know how to read a situation and run the best play (competitive, Proof of Value, enable the champion, when to go tactical or strategic).
  • Drive Sales initiatives like Pipe Gen Mondays, Demo Days, and certification programs.
  • Make learning easy and engaging, so that the right behaviors get adopted and become muscle memory
  • Constantly improve the AE experience, as measured by feedback and outcomes for our more tenured AE’s
  • Create programs to engage our highest performers in growing into what’s next in their careers  (Enterprise Sales, Sales Management, … even Sales Enablement!)
  • Work with the larger Enablement team on projects like Sales Kickoff, Go-to-Market All Hands calls, strategic initiatives, and training events.
  • In collaboration with AE leadership, review AE calls and coach the team on how to constantly improve.

Requirements

  • Experience with scaling a high growth startup company strongly preferred
