Toptal is a network of the world’s top 3% of software engineering, design, finance, and project management talent – available on demand to help companies accelerate, adapt, and scale. With $100+ million in annual revenue and triple-digit growth, Toptal is the largest fully distributed workforce in the world.
We take the best elements of virtual teams and combine them with a support structure that encourages innovation, social interaction, and fun [see this video from The Huffington Post]. We see no borders, move at a fast pace, and are never afraid to break the mold.
If you’re not in the job market, you’re exactly the type of person we’re looking for.
As an Enterprise Sales Executive at Toptal, you will help us continue Toptal’s incredible growth and establish us as the premier partner for the world’s leading companies, helping them build amazing teams with Toptal’s elite talent. Toptal only accepts the best - we accept less than 2% of applicants, and we connect organizations to the talent they need with unmatched speed and efficiency. On average, we provide less than two candidates per hire, find candidates in less than 24 hours, and have a 98% success rate - imagine what you could do with such a powerful model. Leveraging your past success selling talent solutions to large, Enterprise-level accounts, you will build a portfolio of business helping organizations solve their talent shortage problems.
This is a remote position that can be done from anywhere in the United States.
You will build a portfolio of clients, with a focus on mutually-beneficial, long-term relationships that establish Toptal as a trusted talent partner.
