  • Engage with the customer as their technical contact throughout the pre-sales evaluation cycle, demonstrating how Rapid7 products meet the customer's business and technical needs. 

  • Engage with channel partners in the region to provide technical sales training and support for partner led-opportunities. 

  • Provide on-stand demonstrations at Rapid7 seminars or events and industry trade shows 

  • In pursuit of the above, expect to travel up to 30% of the time domestically within the UK and Ireland region.

  • A genuine interest in helping your customers achieve their goals 

  • The ability to relate to and engage members of both the technical and non-technical community 

  • Highly competent interpersonal skills in English. 

  • Experience of presenting to larger groups 

  • The ability to be self-driven, enthusiastic and determined to succeed

  • An understanding of the sales process, the roles and responsibilities involved 

  • A high degree of personal responsibility as you may be working from home/remotely for the time being

 

 

 

You Might Also Have: 

 

  • Experience of working in a startup or other fast-paced environment 

  • Experience as a security practitioner within a commercial or public-sector organisation 

  • A good understanding of network topology, TCP/IP network configuration and components (firewalls, routers, etc.)

  • Expertise in IT, DevOps, Application Security, Vulnerability Management, Incident Response or Security Automation

That said, we truly believe that your attitude and teachability are the most important and thus we encourage you to apply if you feel you have the values and potential to be a Moose: https://share.vidyard.com/watch/vU3G78mSHzFg7gWvzrt2ZM?
