Sales Engineer (Remote)

Location: San Diego, CA
Date Posted: 11-09-2018
Our client is a fast growing, Silicon Valley based SaaS startup that is revolutionizing the world of email marketing. For years, email was perceived among digital marketing professionals as a reliable if somewhat tired and dated communications channel. While the world rushed to embrace mobile, social, and cross-channel platforms, email was largely left in the dust.

Today, our client is transforming email into a reborn, powerhouse marketing machine. The company’s flagship technology enables marketers to instantly personalize email messages, simply and at scale, with real-time personalization capabilities and the most advanced interactive inbox experiences on the planet. Leading brands like Best Buy, Disney, GE, Lowe’s, MasterCard, Victoria’s Secret, and Wells Fargo rely on their product every day to drive engagement, customer experience, and the top line.
