Firefly is a trailblazing force in the tech industry, propelling the future of Cloud Asset Management. Our solution empowers DevOps, SRE, and Platform Engineering teams to master their cloud landscape, detect drifts, invoke policy-as-Code, and maintain a codified cloud across Multi-Cloud and Kubernetes clusters. We specialize in providing comprehensive asset inventory, insights, and Infrastructure-as-Code information.

Responsibilities:

  • Create detailed business plans to reach predetermined goals and quotas
  • Identify, qualify, negotiate, and close new business opportunities

  • Negotiate with relevant stakeholders in the prospect organizations (procurement, legal, and more)
  • Collaborate with sales leadership and Sales Engineers to create and refine the lead qualification process

Requirements:

  • Have proven experience as an Account Executive of at least 3 years from a startup/tech company, selling to mid-market and Enterprise clients.
