I joined Elastic almost eight months ago as vice president of the US commercial segment. During these whirlwind eight months, I was recently promoted to vice president of our new global Inside Sales team — a rapidly expanding team that’s energetic, ambitious, and full of opportunities.
As part of that growth, we’re hiring 100 inside sales people who will be based in our office hubs in Austin, London, and Singapore. But we’re not only hiring sales reps — in the coming months we’ll also be bringing on additional roles to support our growth in all three hubs. This is an exciting chance to join a growing sales team at a company that builds three solutions on a single stack — empowering customers to get more value out of their data across a diverse set of use cases.
What is Inside Sales?
At Elastic, Inside Sales aims to better serve our customers by helping them harness the power of our products and solutions on Elastic Cloud. Inside Account Executives own a set of customers from end to end, working closely with those customers to find solutions to their problems and develop new use cases. Our Inside Sales team is already one of the fastest-growing teams at Elastic, and our initiative to grow the team even further and establish Inside Sales hubs in Austin, London, and Singapore is strategic to our business.
Exciting career path opportunities
At Elastic, there is immense potential for growth as a sales professional — whether that’s moving into a field-based account executive role or into a cross-functional role on our Solutions Architecture or Marketing teams.
In addition to Inside Account Executives, in all three hub cities we’ll be hiring Sales Development Representatives, Solution Architects, Sales Managers, Sales Directors, Cloud Onboarding Specialists, and Customer Success Managers, as well as leadership roles to support those functions.
Our president of worldwide field operations, Paul Appleby, says, “This is an incredible opportunity to launch an enterprise sales career with the fastest growing team in our organization. Members of this team will have the opportunity to be mentored by and work collaboratively with some of the world’s leading GTM experts while supporting customers through their journeys in solving some of their most complex data challenges.”
When I started at Elastic, I shared some of my thoughts on how I lead and why everyone at Elastic plays a part in our success. We’re distributed by design, and humble and ambitious in everything we do. It’s in our Source Code. If you’re interested in joining Elastic and being a part of the success of our team, you’ll find lots of potential for career growth and culture you won’t find anywhere else.
