Job Description:

At Palo Alto Networks-- everything starts and ends with our mission:-- Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.-- We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren't easy goals to accomplish - but we're not here for easy. We're here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we're looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.-- As a member of our sales leadership team, you will build and drive regional major account sales teams to exceed company objectives while growing your region according to plan. You'll be responsible for building a high-performance sales culture that delivers results in bookings, sales development, and forecast accuracy while simultaneously mentoring and developing your team members to accomplish individual and organizational goals. It will be required that you track sales activity, provide sales projects, and create and analyze metrics.-- A challenge inspires you, rather than intimidates you, and you aren't afraid of setting accelerated goals to drive you to succeed. More than that, you are motivated by empowering our clients to meet their cybersecurity needs and you are driven with an encompassing passion for solutions selling. You're not afraid of addressing the critical challenges they are facing within digital transactions - and really, you thrive on the pressure.-- Your Impact--

  • Build sales analysis for insight into weekly, monthly and quarterly execution and strategies--
  • Attend weekly regional forecast and management calls to provide Inside Sales perspective
  • Work closely with other District Sales Managers on crafting business strategy to accomplish company goals
  • Required to stay knowledgeable and up-to-date on product roadmap, industry changes, and competitive landscapes Your Experience--
    • Sales experience and management experience: preferably experience handling both quotas carrying and lead generation inside sales teams
    • Enterprise sales experience required: networking or network security industries strongly preferred
    • Experience with channel and partner sales models
    • Consistently achieved sales goals through your leadership and personal goals--
    • Able to learn new technology quickly, as well as adapt to changing needs
    • Hired, developed and retained successful sales talent--
    • Deep understanding of enterprise sales methodology that you can translate and coach others in--
    • Built strong cross-functional relationships across clients, partners, and internal teams
    • Previous practice in Salesforce.com--
    • 25% quarterly travel within region The Team Our sales team members work hand-in-hand with large organizations around the world to keep their digital environments protected. We educate, inspire, and empower our potential clients in their journey to security. As part of our sales team, you are empowered with unmatched systems and tools, constantly updated research and sales libraries, and a team built on joint success. You won't find someone at Palo Alto Networks that isn't committed to your success - with everyone pitching in to assist when it comes to solutions selling, learning, and development. As a member of our sales team, you are motivated by a solutions-focused sales environment and find fulfillment in working with clients to resolve incredibly complex cyberthreats.-- Our Commitment We're trailblazers that dream big, take risks, and challenge cybersecurity's status quo. It's simple: we can't accomplish our mission without diverse teams innovating, together. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all qualified individuals with a disability. If you require assistance or accommodation due to a disability or special need, please contact us at accommodations@paloaltonetworks.com . Palo Alto Networks is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity in our workplace, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ancestry, color, family or medical care leave, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, medical condition, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, protected veteran status, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, or other legally protected characteristics. When Jamie was hired at Palo Alto Networks in 2011, I told him, "We're a startup and we need you delivering on day one." I almost feel bad in retrospect because Jamie didn't have any product management experience at the time, but I must have known that he would thrive under the challenge. I believed then (as I do now) that in product management, talent is often more important than experience. To really know Lewis, you have to spend time with him. Whether it's joining a phone call to hear his endlessly positive voice, or hearing his passion when speaking about celebrity real estate, his role model, Lebron James, or grapefruits, he's a constant presence in our working lives that will never be quite the same. One of Regina's passions is ensuring technology companies like ours are able to hire and nurture a strong, diverse workforce. She herself knows how difficult and unclear the path to success can be for underrepresented minorities; black women comprise just 3% of the American technology workforce, and even fewer hold leadership roles. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all qualified individuals with a disability. If you require assistance or accommodation due to a disability or special need, please contact us at accommodations@paloaltonetworks.com . Palo Alto Networks is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity in our workplace, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ancestry, color, family or medical care leave, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, medical condition, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, protected veteran status, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, or other legally protected characteristics.
