We are looking for a dynamic leader with a proven track record of at least 5 years in building, coaching, teams in a startup or a small unit within a larger entity. An individual contributor who is interested in moving into management is welcomed to apply. Our team needs someone who truly believes, and can demonstrate, they work for the team. Our customers who are evaluating cutting edge technologies in a rapidly changing environment like containers want to meet with sales teams who are the experts in the space, not just at the art of negotiation, but more importantly the art of discovering and creating value for VMWare in the customer's journey.

  • Hands-on Leader. Bring your "A Game" to drive a focused plan to help VMW navigate both internal and external opportunities & challenges to scale a team that's akin to a startup within a very large organization.
  • Data driven approach to build a repeatable sales model. Proven examples from the past would help.
  • Predictable Forecasting is a key tenet of success. Help your team provide accurate data to enable both - accurate forecasts, more importantly predicting future growth by looking at current quarterly numbers.
  • Effective, regular communications on the business and its progress. Bring examples and references of what few things matter to track progress, that help report on and motivate teams.
  • Doing more, directing less. Lead by example on meetings, customer interactions, following up and ensuring the 'steps to close' matter more than just the 'who we know & what they told us'.
