Einstein Analytics & Einstein Discovery combine dynamic, interactive data visualisation with the power of machine learning to deliver insights and data-driven applications for every business user. Our suite tells businesses what happened, why, what might happen next, and importantly, what can be done to improve it.

This Strategic Account Executive will formulate and execute an Analytics sales strategy for Switzerland, drive revenue growth by penetrating the current customer base, and develop new customers in this segment.

You will consult with customers on the Salesforce Einstein Analytics & Einstein Discovery suite to evangelise solutions that will help them reach their business goals and blaze new trails within their organisations.

You will truly 'own' the Einstein Analytics & Einstein Discovery lead generation to order process in your sector and will also enable Core teams with key product and industry plays relevant to their accounts, and subsequently either lead these activities end to end or work jointly with Core teams to drive growth.
