Director Sales and Market Development
I loved being an AE. Individual contributor, responsible for me and my number alone. Work my schedule. Then management and slow agonizing admin took over my life.Β

Enterprise Account Executive
EAE - just me and an SE grinding away at a list of 50 enterprise accounts with 1/2 customers to grow, half new prospects. No one to blame for not hitting but all the praise/rewards when you do well.Β

Senior Account Executive
Sr. AE of Key/Strategic accounts. You got your list of the company’s top base customers to grow and top targets to land. High profile but big payoffs! You’re the big swinging dick on the sales floor.Β

Head of Growth
I have always loved managing people. I'm a perfectly fine seller, but I really shine when I'm managing people, coaching them, and helping them hit their goals.Β 

Β I find it to be the most rewarding position... but not the highest paid.
