About Netskope

Today, there's more data and users outside the enterprise than inside, causing the network perimeter as we know it to dissolve. We realized a new perimeter was needed, one that is built in the cloud and follows and protects data wherever it goes, so we started Netskope to redefine Cloud, Network and Data Security.

Since 2012, we have built the market-leading cloud security company and an award-winning culture powered by hundreds of employees spread across offices in Santa Clara, St. Louis, Bangalore, London, Melbourne, Taipei, and Tokyo. Our core values are openness, honesty, and transparency, and we purposely developed our open desk layouts and large meeting spaces to support and promote partnerships, collaboration, and teamwork. From catered lunches and office celebrations to employee recognition events (pre and hopefully post-Covid) and social professional groups such as the Awesome Women of Netskope (AWON), we strive to keep work fun, supportive and interactive. Visit us at Netskope Careers. Please follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter@Netskope.

About the position:

We’re looking for a competitive, hard-working, and goal-oriented Sales Development Representative (SDR) to join our growing team. As an SDR, you’ll be responsible for prospecting, qualifying, and setting demos for our Regional Sales Managers with companies that could benefit from Netskope. You will have the opportunity to truly contribute and help impact the company at a pivotal stage. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with exceptional outbound skills, a risk-taker, and a desire to make an impact at a fast-growing company/leader in Cloud Security.

  • Naturally curious
  • Resilient in the face of objections
  • Passionate about sales

  • Positive
  • Willing to hold yourself accountable
  • Confident using programs like LinkedIn and Salesforce or you have had to learn new programs

Responsibilities include:

  • Generate qualified sales opportunities through inbound prospect qualification and outbound pipeline generation.
  • Leverage various outbound prospecting techniques including cold calls, automated email sequences, LinkedIn, and video to generate prospect meetings for our Region Sales Managers to initiate sales opportunities.
