Are you someone who is currently in a role where you feel your skills are undervalued? Are you ready for your "big break"? Are you in the service industry, retail sales or apartment leasing? We are looking for someone smart, creative, and hungry for growth. If you don't have direct sales experience, but you think you can do this job, we want to hear from you! Tell us why you'll be our next superstar! 

Who We Are

At SecureLink, we take our job seriously, but ourselves, not so much. We aren't afraid of a challenge and understand the individual and team effort required to accomplish something great! SecureLink's world headquarters in West Austin is called the Hill Country Spaceship - a great facility we believe you would be proud to call your workplace.

Founded in 2003, SecureLink doesn't just offer products – we provide partnerships. We have the knowledge, existing relationships, and expertise to make the maximum impact on our customers' business. This, and our "failure is not an option" mindset, is what has led to us solidifying our place as the leaders in managing secure third-party remote access and remote support for both highly regulated enterprise organizations and technology vendors.

After 14 years in business, we announced a strategic investment from Vista Equity Partners, the leading technology investment firm focusing exclusively on software, data, and technology-enabled companies. Since then, we have nearly tripled our revenue, earning a place on the Inc. 5000 list of the U.S.'s fastest-growing privately-owned companies three years in a row. During that same period, we've proudly maintained our strong culture, recently being recognized with a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award. In 2020, we announced an added partnership from Cove Hill which will position us to accelerate our growth and further advance product innovation.

This position is expected to be filled in the Austin area even though our team is fully distributed for the time being. We are continuously evaluating our return to the office with the safety of our employees and their families at top of mind.
