Jessica

SDR Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Theo

Corporate Account Executive

How does the company support your career growth?

I started off as an intern and then joined CrowdStrike as an SDR. I was quickly promoted to an SDR team lead and now I'm looking at my next possibilities. I have friends that work in other companies and their trajectory in their first entry level job can take 2-3 years. At CrowdStrike, if you prove yourself, you're fast tracked to the next role.

Marit

SDR Team Lead

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

My leadership style is to be supportive and a little bit experimental. We don't try to cookie cut our reps. We want everyone to find out what they are good at and then coach to those strengths, cover the weaknesses and help everyone find their own way to be successful.

Jack

Director Corporate Sales, East

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

There is real cohesion and teamwork here. We're all in this open setting sharing what is working for us in real time. So I would say it's very much a team and we have a tribal knowledge atmosphere. We all help each other succeed.
