An Insider's view of CrowdStrike

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I was truly blown away by how great CrowdStrike’s culture is. We’re incredibly collaborative and everyone genuinely likes to spend time with one another. This is just one of the reasons that really drew me to grow my career here!

Vince

Corporate Sales Manager

What does your typical day look like?

A Corporate Account Executive is essentially a relationship manager between any organization that we're working with and CrowdStrike. We're strategic and we really dig into the current security environment of a company: finding out what their pain points are, finding out what their goals are, and then positioning a solution!

Theo

Corporate Account Executive

What are some things you learned at the company?

Being in a role that works with multiple departments within CrowdStrike, as well as, with others outside of the company, I have learned the importance of clear communication & collaboration skills through exposure to different situations and learning from those around me. I am excited to see how these skills grow as I develop in my career.

Marit

Account Manager, Renewals - 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

Senior Director, Corporate Sales

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

CrowdStrike has provided endless opportunities for my professional growth. Not only has the organization provided the support to advance my career internally, but they also prepare you for success with any future endeavors outside of the CrowdStrike organization!

SMB Account Executive
