About Census 🔁

Census is how data teams at companies like Figma, Notion, Rippling, Clearbit, and Fivetran build better business operations.

With Census, analysts can turn their data warehouse into a single source of truth and publish their insights directly into the apps that marketing, sales, and success teams use daily. With richer customer data, these teams can build better campaigns, understand what users are doing, and ultimately drive more sustainable revenue.

Backed by a16z and Sequoia, we're a hybrid team headquartered in San Francisco who love taking annoying problems most people avoid and building elegant solutions for them. We believe that data should be used for more than just making charts. This is why we built the first integration platform that works directly within cloud data warehouses.

Your Mission 🚀

We're looking for new members for the Account Executive team. This role involves both inbound and outbound sales prospecting, qualifying, closing, and expanding new and existing customers. 

Account Executives at Census have a passion for technical resolutions to business problems. Given the breadth of Census’s impact on an organization, our team regularly engages in very technical conversations with engineering leadership and simultaneously works with marketing, sales, support, and other areas of a business to help them resolve their data issues. Our team is curious, works hard, stays organized, is trusted and accountable, communicates and collaborates, and has fun doing it all.

Your responsibilities 🗓

  • Work with prospective Census customers in our Commercial segment to win their business and execute contracts
  • Prospect into new accounts and collaborate with the BDR organization to generate new opportunities
  • Turn new opportunities into legitimate pipeline, getting prospects through the evaluation and trial phase. 
  • Collaborate with Sales Engineers on how to best progress opportunities, through RFIs, security reviews, demos, trials, etc.
  • Stay organized in your deal flow by utilizing our CRM and sales engagement stack, contributing back to how it can be streamlined
  • Work with our signed customers in tandem with Customer Success to expand their usage and value of the platform and close upsell opportunities
  • Collaborate with enablement, management, and leadership to hone your sales skills and provide internal feedback to help improve your team and future hires
  • Develop strong sales and product knowledge to create, educate, and qualify Data and Operations teams about Census and the modern data stack.
