Posted on Friday, February 2, 2024

It’s an exciting time at Crossbeam. Over five years post-launch, we have more than 17,000 companies using our platform, raised more than $100M of venture capital from leading VC firms like Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint, FirstMark, and Salesforce Ventures. Best of all, we’re just getting started. In a market full of uncertainty, we are fortunate to have an unwavering long-term vision and the funding to see it through at full speed.

Crossbeam is the first and largest Ecosystem-Led Growth platform, We act as an escrow service for data, allowing companies to find overlapping customers and prospects with their partners, while keeping the rest of their data private and secure. Companies use this data to sell more effectively, market to the right audiences, and build the right products. This has created an entirely new way of doing business called “Ecosystem-Led Growth” or ELG.

As a Mid Market Account Executive, your primary focus will be acquiring new clients in mid-sized accounts. You will analyze customer challenges, identify key stakeholders, and expand their perspective on how Crossbeam can revolutionize their partnership strategies. We are the industry leader in ecosystem led growth, which means you will help our customers drive revenue through ELG for our customers, understanding their wins are our wins too.

Responsibilities include:

  • Close New Business. Drive significant business growth by breaking into net new logos within our mid-sized customer segment, contributing to the achievement of revenue goals.
  • Goals & Metrics. Achieve and exceed monthly/quarterly quotas of pipeline and closed business. Understand how your quarterly goals impact the larger company goals.
  • Collaboration. Work closely with internal go-to-market teams such as partnerships, sales, and customer success to understand our customer's challenges and inspire new use cases. Partner and build trust with cross functional teams like legal, security, & product.
  • Product Expertise. Build and maintain an in-depth understanding of the Crossbeam product and articulate the unique value it delivers to customers. Stay up to date on new features and use cases.
  • Documentation. Maintain strong data hygiene in Salesforce and other revenue tools to drive the strategy for our future growth and ensure a smooth transition to CS & AM teams.
  • Ecosystem Engagement. Build relationships prospects, decision makers, and executives via email, phone, social media, and events. Know that every conversation can be potential for growth.

These are some of your traits:

  • You are a hunter. Following a lead, building relationships with internal champions, and closing deals gets your blood pumping.
  • You have 4+ years of experience in a SaaS closing role and can easily point to repeatable processes you’ve used for success.
  • You love getting answers. You use the internal resources and subject matter expertise at your disposal to really geek out on what you’re selling.
  • When you don’t know how to do something, you’ll admit it and make a quick assessment of whether it’s something you can figure out, if you’ll need help, and where that help should come from.
  • You are passionate about business technology. The problem that Crossbeam solves — and how we are solving it — excites you.
  • You have an understanding of Partnership programs and the value ELG brings to a company's go-to-market strategy and overall success.
  • You know what it means to crush your quota and you chase that excitement. Winning excites you and losing is just a temporary nuisance on your path to the next win.
  • You are confident because you know your stuff. You are comfortable speaking with the highest levels of an organization with tact, sincerity, and accuracy.
  • You speak your mind, have no issue raising concerns with company leaders, but are also able to “disagree and commit” when things don’t go your way.
  • You have well-honed sales chops, but are humble enough to always be learning from those you encounter.
  • You just read this whole list and got more excited than concerned.
