Now Hiring: Sales Engineer

DeepSurface Security is changing how organizations address risk on their networks by empowering our customers to be radically better at finding and removing risk. We’re a fast-growing, cyber security company headquartered in Portland, OR.

We're a growing team of self-starters with deep expertise. We value pragmatic solutions and being good to each other. We move fast, but with discipline, and rely on team members to listen, think, and then build the best products for our customers. If you love working in teams, take a high degree of initiative, and have a history of extreme ownership, then we'd like to meet you.

DeepSurface Security has great benefits, a very flexible work environment, and a commitment to hiring diversely.

The Position

We have an immediate opening for a Sales Engineer.  All roles are 100% remote currently, but we plan to go back into our Portland offices part time after COVID.  You should have several years of experience in technical sales, with emphasis on live demos, end-user training, and providing technical leadership throughout our sales process.  Your IT/DevOps/Development and or Vulnerability Management experience couples with your enthusiasm for sales to help you clearly articulate and demonstrate the value of DeepSurface’s products to any audience.  Expect to discuss problems customers have and the solutions DeepSurface provides with people across the technical spectrum; from the most-technical people you’ll ever meet to the mildly-technical.

Our Sales Engineers are the key link between the Sales and Development teams.  We expect you to work with both our Sales and Development teams daily.  As such, we expect you to have some mastery of the tools on both sides.  Having some experience with Salesforce is a plus, but we would also like you to be comfortable in both Linux and Windows environments and well-versed in their command-line tooling, services, and network/domain administration.

Would you thrive in a collaborative environment with team players, be comfortable taking initiative to produce results, collaborate effectively with a talented team, and have the ability to suggest and carry out practical actions to deal with issues?  Then you should be talking to us.

  • Be part of the bridge between Sales and Development to help communicate issues
  • Provide reports/feedback to Sales, Product and Development teams on customer accounts, activities, and issues
  • Provide assistance to Support Engineers
  • Document Sales Engineering processes

Personal Skills
