The Role
Nylas is looking for driven individuals to join our Growth sales team. Our Growth AEs focus on closing deals from companies in the 0-100 employee range, often working directly with founders and executives to alleviate their development headaches and speed up their production cycles.

Sales cycles on this team average <30 days (some deals less than a week), so you'll get to work in a high velocity environment while being exposed to software companies from a variety of industries.

What do you love about Nylas? What motivates you?
Katja: Being able to help smaller companies build out a core part of their product and work with them to achieve their company goals.
Wilson: I love that Nylas lets the product drive the business, and not the other way around. Our leaders are product people first and foremost, and it has ensured that we have the stickiest product possible - and one that is a ton of fun to show people the art of the possible for.

What is something a candidate should know?
Katja: Nylas as a company is very transparent and welcomes all suggestions and feedback when it comes to improving. This can be for product, process, or company improvements. Your opinions matter here.
Wilson: We move fast - but we work as a team to help everybody move fast together.

How do you like to manage your team?
Katja: With trust. I'm hands off and trust that you know how to work to achieve the results you want and if you are having a hard time figuring that out, I'm here to help!
Wilson: I manage with transparency - We can't reach our mutual goals if I am hiding things from you.

How do you view career growth/opportunity for this role?
Katja: Career growth is extremely important here. I want you to stay at Nylas and grow your career for as long as you want. Whether that's moving up the sales IC path, getting into management, or even moving to another department, I will be supportive in helping you achieve your career goals.
