Regional Sales Director
Axis Security is pioneering a game-changing approach to Zero Trust Application Access. Axis Security’s Application Access Cloud makes private app access amazingly simple. Built on a zero-trust approach, users are securely connected to private apps, while avoiding the need for VPNs, agents, or appliances. Users never touch the network or applications themselves, providing organizations with reduced risk, greater visibility, and increased productivity.
There are a lot of security companies out there, but no one is doing what Axis is doing: giving our customers the ability to deliver the safest way to connect users to private applications. As a result, we’re seeing phenomenal growth as some of the top companies in the world adopt our platform. We have top tier venture funding, an amazing team who will fight beside you to accomplish the impossible, and we offer great benefits and stock options.
The Reginal Sales Director will lead efforts around sales and adoption of the Axis Security solution focusing on Fortune 1000 companies, leading a full lifecycle sale from discovery through negotiation. We are searching for an experienced, highly motivated, RSD with strong business skills, a track record of success, and a natural desire to win. You are a sales hunter who can tell a compelling story to multiple roles in an organization, using your influence and skills at relationship building.
