What You'll Do

Birdeye is a SaaS platform reimagining the way customer feedback is used to acquire and retain connected customers by closing the loop between business reputation and customer experience (CX). With Birdeye's tools, businesses can engage in every step of the customer journey, establish a positive online presence, and benchmark performance across locations and against competitors. By providing strategically actionable information, we empower our clients to achieve previously unattainable performance. In today's reputation economy, Birdeye provides the eyes, ears and algorithms necessary to create a stand-out customer experience that pleases a digital consumer society reliant on instant gratification.

If you are the type of individual who thrives on cutting-edge technology, building relationships within all aspects of the C-Suite (particularly CMO), and if your expectations of your performance are higher than your employer's... we'd like to discuss an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial-minded sales executive to get in on the ground floor of one of Silicon Valley’s hottest startups. If you possess the right energy, competitive spirit, personal drive and track record of success in sales, this is a perfect opportunity for you.

As a Strategic Account Executive with Birdeye's Enterprise Sales team you have the opportunity to attack a defined territory with a solution already driving improved reputation and customer experiences for more than 50,000 companies in North America. The market opportunity for Reputation Management and Customer Experience software is $10B+ in the US and 2-3x that number globally.

Bottom line? We're growing, rapidly, and need sales champions to help Birdeye grab market share as enterprise organizations realize that they do not control their reputation (top driver for new customer acquisition) and that they are not acting on customer feedback (top driver for customer retention).
