And, we empower you to be a Trailblazer, too — driving your performance and career growth, charting new paths, and improving the state of the world. If you believe in business as the greatest platform for change and in companies doing well and doing good – you’ve come to the right place.

Tableau (a Salesforce company) is rapidly expanding and we’re looking for an experienced Account Executive Enterprise Sales professional to join our #datafam team in Germany.

Some of the things you will be doing include…

  • Managing and qualifying multiple opportunities through the sales process to a successful close, in order to meet/exceed your quarterly and annual sales quota.

  • Travelling to customer sites across your territory to support your sales efforts.

  • Performer. Consistent over achievement of sales goals.
  • Sales Mentality. Desire and hunger to hunt new opportunities. As well as maintaining and expanding key stakeholder relationships within existing account(s).
