Are you ready to help us drive continued growth?

About Panopto

We believe that video can have a transformative effect on learning. So we built a video platform that helps businesses and universities improve the way that they train, teach, and share knowledge.  We’ve been a pioneer in video capture software, video content management systems, and inside-video search technology. We’ve been recognized by Deloitte as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America, and by Gartner as a Leader in video content management.

  • Effectively identify myriad use cases for a software solution and build a compelling business case tailored to the prospect.
  • Exercise sound business judgment, creativity, and resourcefulness in the pursuit of strategic accounts.
  • Develop a thorough knowledge of a complex technology platform and the ability to launch into a demo with the end-user in mind.
  • Collaborate with a team to provide RFP responses.
  • Successfully lead prospects through contract negotiations.

About you

  • 5+ years of sales experience managing inbound leads balanced with outbound activity in a high-volume environment
  • A consistent and proven record of exceeding sales quotas
  • Knowledge of the educational technology market desired but not essential

  • Experience balancing efforts between inbound and outbound activities to build and manage a pipeline of more than 50 accounts with 6+ month sales cycles
  • Willingness and ability to travel up to 25%
