Account Executive at Roboflow

Who We Are

Our mission is to make the world programmable. Sight is one of the key ways we understand the world, and soon this will be true for the software we use, too. 

At Roboflow, we’re building the tools, community, and resources needed to make the world programmable with artificial intelligence. Roboflow simplifies building and using computer vision models. Today, over 250,000 developers, including those from half the Fortune 100, use Roboflow’s machine learning open source and hosted tools. That includes counting cells to accelerate cancer research, improving construction site safety, digitizing floor plans, preserving coral reef populations, guiding drone flight, and much more

Our team is small relative to our impact, and we believe our user success is our success (not the inverse). A team member summarized: “Roboflow is a company full of giant brains and tiny egos.” We find software has a multiplier effect on all roles (not only product and engineering), so Roboflow employs developers across the company in design, sales, customer support, marketing, and beyond. 

We’re supported by great customers and investors, having raised over 23 million from Y Combinator, Craft Ventures, Sam Altman, Lachy Groom, amongst other leading software investors. 

What We're Looking For

Primarily, you like to make great things with passionate colleagues. You are someone that likes to own outcomes, not only inputs. You’re motivated by having responsibility and accountability. You’re eager to ‘do the work,’ big and small.

You’re curious and learning about new technologies, perhaps an early tinkerer with ChatGPT and AI products. You show more than you tell.

You’re motivated by the question, “How can I improve this?” and have a track record of doing so, even in ways adjacent to your role. Much of our current team is made up of former founders and thrive in the level of autonomy at Roboflow. Maybe you had a side hustle in high school or college.

Many Roboflowers have used our tools before joining. One of the best ways to stand out amongst other applicants is to write about something you have built with Roboflow or contribute to one of our open source projects.

What You’ll Do

To continue hitting our ambitious goals, you’ll own deals from start to finish. This includes collaborating with our SDRs to qualify inbound leads and strategically prospecting into target accounts. You’ll be managing multiple deals concurrently, navigating org structures, and helping alleviate our prospects’ pain by showing the possibility, value, and impact of computer vision with Roboflow.

We're a small team, so you’ll have a key hand in shaping the sales process. That includes an eagerness to identify what’s working, creating collateral to support the process, and iterating. You enjoy not only helping customers succeed but building processes. -Identify and qualify leads (with our SDRs) and develop them into high-value opportunities. -Build relationships with our prospects and customers, including executives in your accounts, to help understand their needs and simplify closing a deal. -Close deals efficiently: Increasing our ACV and compressing our sales cycles. -Prospect into new accounts and expand existing ones. -Keep our CRM up to date (customer info, deal size, deal status), so we can forecast and improve our sales process. -Work with technical stakeholders, including executives, to identify opportunities to accelerate the adoption of computer vision -in their business with Roboflow. -Collaborate with the rest of our team (product, marketing) to identify new features and messaging to increase the value and use of Roboflow.
