Sales Development

We believe that application security belongs in the hands of the
engineers who write code. It should be automated within current
workflows, simplifying the process of building secure software.

The Role:

StackHawk is an application security product that is taking a new approach to the market. There is a graveyard of security products that have been sold to the C-Suite and fell flat at implementation. StackHawk is different… we’ve built a product for developers that will help them take ownership of application security. StackHawk is the only product on the market that truly allows developers to run dynamic security tests against their applications before they hit production.

We are looking for an ambitious Sales Development Representative to lead pipeline generation activity across the organization. We’re looking for an individual who is passionate about technology, solving problems, & progressing their career in the DevOps space. You have outstanding communication skills, both written and verbal; & have a track record of giving successful presentations. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to define your success & significantly accelerate your career within a very short period of time. You will be reporting directly to our Head of Sales.
