Sales Manager (AMER)

Dovetail's mission is to enable the world to create better products and services through deep customer understanding. We empower 45,000+ people, from agencies to universities to Fortune 100 companies, to make sense of their customer research in one collaborative and powerful research platform.

We have recently established a presence in San Francisco to enable us to better serve our global customer base, and fuel continued customer growth. We've raised capital to further accelerate our growth, with backing from Blackbird Ventures (investors in Canva and SafetyCulture), Felicis Ventures (investors in Adyen, Shopify, and Notion), and Accel (investors in Slack, Dropbox, and Webflow).

You will join as our first Sales Manager and you will be a critical contributor in shaping our North American presence. You'll work with the team to recruit, hire, and grow a team of Account Executives. You will also help mature our sales motion and complement the self-service sales model that has taken us to where we are today.

To learn more about the Dovetail journey, listen to this episode of Blackbird Ventures' Wild Hearts podcast. If you need more convincing on the opportunity for Dovetail, check out Andreessen Horowitz' piece on The Market for User Research Platforms.
