Must be a Sales Challenger. You are willing to challenge the status quo adoption of technology solutions in public safety – on prem vs cloud, video vs no video, budgetary constraints, legacy brands vs new brands, established service providers vs new energetic service providers and automatic ticketing vs no automatic ticketing.

Must be Articulate. You are capable of communicating value propositions in a clear and succinct manner to establish rapport and become the subject matter expert and technology advisor.

Must be a Team Player. You know how to work in a fast-paced environment where daily obligations may change dramatically day-to-day. Sector team members are mission-oriented and are proactive in their needs to be successful.

We offer a competitive salary, attractive bonuses and incentives, a fun work environment, a solid benefits package, and the opportunity to work with a dynamic and passionate team in a young and mission-driven company.
