Periscope Data, San Francisco

We Help Data Teams Do More


Periscope Data’s vision is to turn data teams into superheroes.  We have the opportunity to connect an untapped audience with a product that delivers the fastest time-to-value on the market. As an Account Executive, you will identify business pains and needs as well as demonstrate the value of our product to future Periscope customers.     


Learn to sell a proven, technical product in a greenfield territory. We’re serving a growing market that remains underserved and the proof is in our customer growth. In the last two years we’ve more than tripled our logo count, from 300 to 1000.  

In terms of pipeline support, you can expect a lot: we currently average one Account Development Representative for every Account Executive.  In terms of strong leadership, the C-suite comes from Google, Microsoft, Box, and Salesforce. Our vision for the future is clear.
