  • Take the lead in customer calls when necessary, where you're not needed on every call (teach to fish) but can enhance the calls that are escalated to you--
  • This role is highly cross-functional with Product, R&D, and Marketing, your ability to manage peer relationships outside of your team is paramount--
  • Become an expert in understanding proper use cases in Computer Vision applied to different industries

    • Excitement toward disrupting markets not previously disrupted by technology and facilitating digital transformation
    • Aggressive, action-oriented, and excellent closing skills
