Our Sales Development teams are the tip of the spear and play a critical role in growing our brand presence, uncovering sales opportunities in target prospect accounts, and expanding existing customer relationships. Partnering closely with your team of Sr. Enterprise Account Executives, you will often be the first point of contact in engaging with large ($1B+ revenue) companies who want to drive workforce transformation at scale. In this role, you will learn, level up, and/or leverage your MEDDPICC skills, conduct in depth research on your target accounts, and use this information to execute creative multi-stream outreach activities to engage contacts at multiple levels within these organizations. You will leverage your prior sales experience to drive outbound outreach (warm/cold call, LinkedIn, video messaging, email, etc.), ask qualifying questions to ensure high quality meetings with our target audience, and collaborate closely with our Enterprise Sales, Customer Success, and Marketing teams to generate new opportunities.

You’ve probably heard the following statistic: Most male applicants only meet 60% of the qualifications, while women and other marginalized candidates only apply if they meet 100% of the qualifications. If you think you have what it takes but don’t meet every single point in the job description, please apply!
We believe that historically, many processes disproportionately hurt the most marginalized communities in society- including people of color, working-class backgrounds, women and LGBTQ people. Centering these communities at our core is pivotal for any successful organization and a value we uphold steadfastly. Therefore, Udacity strongly encourages applications from all communities and backgrounds.
Udacity is proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity employer. Please read our blog post for “6 Reasons Why Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace Exists”
Last, but certainly not least…
