We help our students learn new skills, gain valuable industry certifications, and excel in their careers
It’s an exciting time at A Cloud Guru - we’ve taught over 600,000 students since our inception 3 years ago; received US venture capital funding with a recent $2M raise in May; and we're now focusing on building out our B2B feature set and product offering. 
We have ambitious goals for the year ahead and we're looking for a confident, curious, and customer focused Account Executive to help us achieve these goals.
As an Account Executive at A Cloud Guru, you'll be responsible for closing new business deals and for accelerating the net-new customer sales cycle. This is a high impact role in our team that is perfectly suited for an experienced AE who is relentlessly optimistic, genuinely curious, and who deeply believes in delivering awesome customer experiences. We move at lightning speed and have loads of growth opportunities for people who thrive working in a fast-paced startup environment!

From the outset you'll need to:

  • Prospecting, developing, and closing new customers for A Cloud Guru’s Teams cloud training platform
  • Closing recurring revenue deals ranging from $5K - $100K
  • Identifying, establishing and nurturing decision maker relationships
  • Creating accurate forecasts and tracking all activities in Salesforce.com
  • Delivering value drive solution demo’s and presentations
  • Helping scale and document sales team practices
  • Attending trade shows as required

If you have the following experience we'd love to hear from you

  • Proven commercial experience in a quota carrying SaaS sales role with a few years of technology sales experience under your belt
  • Proven ability to develop relationships and win new business quickly

Working with us
Our people matter to us. We know everyone has a life, and we encourage you to live it to the fullest. We understand that with a start-up life comes stress, pressure and change and for that reason our employees receive 20 days (4 weeks) of leave each year.
In addition to this we offer health, vision, and dental coverage, 401K and we pay commensurate with experience and potential to make sure you’re looked after.
Our Crew
Our team is spread across the globe, primarily in the US, Australia and the UK. This role will be based in our shiny new offices in Austin, Texas. While we do have remote workers, this role requires hands-on collaboration so the position requires that you live in or relocate to Austin.
We are a fast-growing team with big ambitions. We need people who can help us build a solid foundation for the future. If you want to make a difference in a fast-growing team, now is the time to join.

An Insider's view of A Cloud Guru

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe here is a reflection of the people – laid back, casual, and most of all, jovial. No workplace is ever going to be the same as home, but here there is a similar level of comfort. Folks are exceptionally welcoming and willing to help out where they can. Humor is necessary to get through the work day, and we've got that in spades here.

What projects are you most excited about?

Our content team is hard at work to continue providing a differential and expansive training offering to our customers. There is a ton of awesome new stuff in the works for our enterprise offering, Teams, and I can’t wait to continue to help businesses and enterprises in their cloud adoption journey. 2019 is going to be a big year!
