  • Be an industry expert: The overlay rep should have a large view over our product roadmap, be able to do speaking engagements and understand what other customers in that vertical leverage on VDMS.  This has to be someone who can own a room and deliver our message.

  • This person should be somewhere around 70% technical and 30% sales oriented. We want the overlays to be able to go deep on specific topics, but also understand how to navigate a sales process, be an internal advocate for deals and work closely with our available channels.

  • 10+ years as Solution Architect/Sr Solution Engineer in specific vertical with preference for selling Enterprise software, SAAS, and/or cloud technologies (preferably CDN/Cloud technologies).
