Director, Sales Enablement

About the Team:

Warning: this is not a traditional Sales Enablement role or Sales Enablement team.

Sales Enablement at MuleSoft is transforming how we sell, enabling much larger ASPs and higher win rates by delivering insight and ultimately transformational outcomes to customers. Our charter is to improve sales productivity, which is arguably the most important metric in our business. We don’t just roll out a model that is already proven…we are defining the model.  In the process we’re helping a large number of individuals accelerate their careers.

Great sales organizations scale organizations scale when they have a story that resonates strongly with the market and when they consistently deliver that story in every customer interaction. Creating this story requires both deep customer understanding (typical for sales) and rich knowledge of where we are taking the business (typical for marketing).  You are the unique person who can bridge these worlds.  You will be responsible for making sure our story achieves resonance at scale.

  • Build and run our executive briefing center (EBC).  This function is in its infancy today.  Running the Center will give you access to and allow you to shape the senior-most conversations we have with customers.  What you observe there will be an important input to your other work.
