Account Executive, K-12 - Current Client Team

When was a last time that a day at the office was accompanied by the satisfaction of knowing that you did something to change the world? For us at Blackbaud, that’s an average day. We’re developing the solutions that help non-profits focus on what they do best; whether that’s saving the environment, educating children or solving the world’s major health concerns. And while we are working to enable the success of over 28,000+ customer organizations, we are enabling the success of our company and our people. We are committed to developing the careers of our employees, in all professions, through learning and mentoring programs. And we do it all in an environment that values teamwork, diversity and philanthropy.

How many times have you been asked, what do you do for a living? Here at Blackbaud, we ask why instead of what. We work on issues that impact the world, including improving education, health and the environment. A sales job a Blackbaud is not your typical software sales job. Imagine if you knew that every sale you made had a direct impact on making the world a better place? We are always looking for incredible, mission-driven individuals to join our team.
