Join the team as our next Manager, Segment Sales Strategy.

Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we have presence throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We're on a journey to becoming a globally anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-bias company that actively opposes racism and all forms of oppression and bias. At Twilio, we support diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business. We employ thousands of Twilions worldwide, and we're looking for more builders, creators, and visionaries to help fuel our growth momentum.

You will work closely as the International Business Partner to our senior sales management team in the EMEA region. These sales leaders have successfully built other successful enterprise SaaS companies, you will help grow and scale our global revenue-generating operations, increase sales efficiency, and develop new business processes. This is a multi-faceted role where you will work cross-functionally with our sales team, finance, operations, marketing, and product teams. We are seeking people with a passion for helping others and who are eager to take on a variety of projects in a dynamic environment. Proven problem solving and communication skills are required, and a quantitative or technical background is a big plus.

Responsibilities

In this role, you’ll:

  • Provide comprehensive sales operational support, including but not limited to territory management, headcount, capacity and quota management, account and opportunity management, and rules of engagement decisions.
  • Support our global forecasting cadence, while continuing to build and refine business models that improve the predictability of our business.
  • Act as a business partner with sales leadership to solve sales process pain points and implement solutions that reduce friction and increase predictability.
  • Provide ad hoc analysis on top of funnel metrics, pipeline trends, account segmentation and sales activity to inform sales leadership decisions on how to scale and grow our sales org.
  • Identify opportunities for process optimization, process redesign, or development of new processes/policies.
  • Partner with sales leadership to analyze and refine our segmentation, organizational structure and go-to-market planning processes.
  • Build and maintain key documentation regarding our policies, sale processes, and requirements.
