Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer 💫
We're building intelligent security that works for human beings as they are, not how security policies would like them to be. Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error - like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks - with minimal disruption to employees' workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.
Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by renowned investors like Sequoia, Accel and Balderton and has hubs in San Francisco, Boston, and London.
Sales Development at Tessian
Funded by VCs such as Sequoia Capital and Accel Partners, we’re building out our commercial presence and are looking for passionate builder to help us create something special.
You'll work out of our London HQ & coach a team of SDRs to success. You'll build a developmental sales culture that you’re proud of, and that our employees tell their friends about. You'll build, manage and draw data-driven insight from your team’s top of funnel pipeline creation, and use this insight to iterate and improve funnel conversion and team effectiveness.
You'll work cross-functionally with our partners in marketing, product, finance and recruiting to lead and/or support different strategic initiatives, and be a vocal evangelist and thought leader in the markets where we serve our customers and continue to recruit our talented teams.
We don’t pretend that it’ll be easy - joining a company and embarking on the scale-up phase is an amazing challenge, pushing well beyond the boundaries of natural growth cycles. You’ll move quicker than feels comfortable, and be brilliant at continually re-prioritizing what must get done to keep Tessian growing year over year at the pace of the fastest growing SaaS companies in history.
