Are you a world class SaaS Sales Engineer that is comfortable selling to the world’s most prestigious companies? Do you love spending time with customers to solve their mission critical problems, while still being passionate about groundbreaking technology? Do you get excited at having the ability to define how companies do business in the cloud, and helping your customers become market leaders? At SignalFx/Splunk, we would love to speak with you, and have a rich history of making top performing SE’s from technology innovators like yourself.

The SignalFx SE organization is outstanding in that you will be financially and professionally rewarded for the contributions you deliver. Simply put, the more deals you contribute on that close, the more commissions you will earn. Our philosophy at SignalFx/Splunk is that SE’s are leaders in the deals that we close, and as a result, you will have the potential to earn significantly more than in a traditional SaaS based technology company.

With this significant earning potential, we ask a lot from our SE’s, and are looking for individuals who not only want to aggressively sell and make SignalFx a market leader, but also help build an amazing SE culture, one that values, respects and recognizes the contributions that an SE makes.
