Digital Account Executive

 

Equinix is the world’s digital infrastructure company. We believe that the future of infrastructure will be developer-led and software-defined, and we’re committed to helping digital leaders assemble infrastructure in minutes, anywhere in the world, on-demand from an ecosystem of providers. 

 

To make this vision possible, we’re building a culture and set of products that put practitioners, builders, and creators at the center.  A key part of our strategy is to position ambitious, knowledgeable, and savvy account executives as the trusted partners that help these digital leaders succeed at Equinix. That’s where you come in!

 

Growing Digital-First Accounts at Equinix
As a Digital Account Executive, you will play a key role in helping cloud-native SaaS companies, startups, and fast-growing Enterprise “lines of business”  adopt our platform value.  While currently focused on Equinix Metal, this role has the opportunity to impact digital-native selling across Equinix’s entire digital services portfolio: Equinix Fabric, Network Edge, Equinix Connect, Metro Connect, and Precision Time. 

 

Growth is key to all aspects of this role. As we like to say about our digital accounts: if they’re not growing, they’re churning! To unlock this growth you’ll need to partner with a variety of internal and customer stakeholders to:
 

  • Remove barriers to adoption ...by working with Solutions Architects, Customer Success, Technical Account Managers, and expanding your own technical and business knowledge.

  • Provide appropriate resources...by sharing product functionality and explaining how to succeed with tooling and partner technologies.

  • Leverage data...by understanding account trends, buying and product adoption signals, and external enrichment sources.

  • Fill digital services gaps...by interfacing with established ecosystem partners in key functional areas e.g. Kubernetes, Storage, Databases, HCI.

  • Raise awareness internally and externally...by engaging peers across Equinix in practitioner culture and use cases.…by activating smart outreach campaigns in partnership with marketing and opportunity development colleagues.


Who You Are
This an entrepreneurial role that requires strategic, analytical, interpersonal, and sales skills; a deep understanding and interest in the cloud infrastructure ecosystem; experience working with technical buyers and the products they use; a commitment to building authentic and long-lasting relationships with champions; a business development sensibility; and a desire to engage across all mediums from code to video and the written word.  Most importantly, you’ll want to grow our business impact through the cultivation of a consistent and high-performing book of business.

 

The ideal candidate will have the ability to switch gears quickly while maintaining focus on stated goals.  You should apply to this role if you are:

 

  • A customer obsessed, platform and software-minded sales superstar with experience at AWS, Azure, GCP or similar.

  • A hardware nerd (gaming counts!) with a competitive streak.

  • An attentive listener that can identify opportunities, and translate that to action.

  • A passionate technologist looking  to make a positive impact. 

  • A driven team player with a strong sense of ownership and an entrepreneurial spirit.

  • Comfortable and excited by carrying a quota.

 

You should also have:

  • A minimum 3+ years of experience building, using, or selling Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) 

  • Experience with common sales tools: Salesforce, Outreach, Clearbit, etc. 

 

Critical Success Factors:

 

  • Demonstrate humility

  • Possess endless curiosity 

  • Listening to understand
