StrongKey is making data breaches irrelevant. We are redefining the way businesses and government agencies secure their information against the inevitability of a breach through providing four specific practices that ensures their data, no matter the format, remains encrypted and protected at the highest possible level. While other security solutions focus on predicting, containing, or looking after the perimeter, StrongKey provides strong authentication, encryption, and digital signatures – underpinned by key management – to ensure data security, even with an attacker on your network. We’re trusted by some of the largest companies and critical government agencies around the globe, and we have tailored solutions whether you’re a multinational corporation, small business, or just you – working from your home office.
Founded in 2001, we are now at a pivotal time to grow. It’s time to capitalize on the success stories and proven track record around the globe, and it’s time to scale. It’s time to bring our innovative, affordable, open-source solutions to a market facing an ever-growing threat of cyberattacks.
This means a unique opportunity for people joining the StrongKey team. We can offer the autonomy, excitement, strategy-setting, navigating ambiguity, and challenge of a startup. And yet, all of that is backed up with 17 years of proven security, thought leadership, and a working business model. If you are tired of being lost in the crowd or feeling like you don't have the opportunity for personal impact, we think we could be a compelling place for you to work. And if you drool at the opportunity to collaboratively create something new, we want you on board.
What You’ll Do Here
We are looking for a qualified Sales Engineer to work with our Sales, Software Development, and Support teams. You will provide accurate technical service before and after the point of sale, ensuring customer satisfaction. You will travel to customer sites to install and configure systems for new and existing customers.
As our Sales Engineer, you should be a tech-savvy professional, able to explain technical details and requirements to a non-technical audience. You should also be results-driven and aspire to achieve specific goals.
Ultimately, you should be able to provide technical, product and business knowledge to support the sales team and strengthen customer relationships.
The Kind of Person Who Would Fit This Role
Compensation, Benefits, and a Bit More about Us
StrongKey is based out of Durham, NC and Cupertino, CA. We are planning on building our team in Durham, NC, but if that isn't you – send us a note anyways. We are open to discussing remote working potential for the right candidate, and if you're not from the area, you may find Durham (and the greater Triangle) the perfect blend of affordability, good weather, great food, and a strong (and growing) tech community.
As an early member of the StrongKey team, you will be compensated with a competitive salary and equity stake. You will also have the opportunity to help build a company from its early days and work closely with the co-founders. We mentioned it once, but it's worth saying again – if you're motivated by helping write a company's story from the near-beginning, this is a powerful opportunity for you to join the ground floor of a company we truly believe is going to be meaningful.
With portions of your role functioning as a sales engineer, we anticipate bonus payouts in line with sales and customer focused metrics.
