✍🏽 About Writer
AI your people will love. That's our vision, and it contains multitudes :-)
We're filling a big need for generative AI built ground-up for the needs of enterprises and embraced by their teams. As generative AI became a board-level initiative almost overnight for most enterprises, our market matured dramatically and we benefit from that tailwind. Our product is highly differentiated, our roadmap is transformative, and our customers are happy and vocal.
📐 About this role
Every company grows differently, and we grow when we help our customers identify how generative AI can transform their business.
As one of our first Mid-market growth account executives , you’ll drive expansion by initiating evaluations with our current customers/prospects focusing on departments we aren't currently in, as well as getting to CMOs and CIOs who are thinking about their larger strategy for generative AI. You’ll need to be able to map complex organizations to identify where Writer could add value, break into new lines of business, understand our customers’ objectives to tie what we do to business value, and have an evangelistic spirit.
Your positivity, sense of curiosity, business acumen, and ability to create champions from early adopters in the AI writing space will help shape our entire culture. If you have a builder mentality, this is the role for you.
You'll be reporting to our Head of expansion.
