About the Role 
Are you ready for your next real security challenge? Are you passionate about helping organizations stop breaches using a platform that just works?

  • Strong understanding of Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems
  • Can easily articulate complex security problems to a diverse set of audiences
  • Strong self-starter with the ability to work independently
  • Can work collaboratively with Sales, Marketing, Support, and Engineering; the Sales Engineer should be the technical bridge between CrowdStrike and prospects/customers
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills with the ability to present to a variety of external audiences, including C-level executives
  • Extensive contacts in the information security field and strong references

Requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in a relevant field
  • Sales engineering background or 5+ years of relevant work experience
  • Ability to travel as required

Nice To Have

An Insider's view of CrowdStrike

What's something quirky about your company?

Our mascot is a falcon so the SDR team puts falcon in front of activities - for example when we do team stretches when everyone needs to get up from their chair and take a break we call it Falcon Stretch

SDR Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

CrowdStrike does an awesome job at promoting from within. I started as an SDR a little of a year ago and am now an SDR Manager! When departments are looking for new hires the SDR org is the first place they look for internal promotions.
