Become a Sales Rep at Gravitational

About us

Gravitational is a Y Combinator backed software startup headquartered in Oakland. We are well-funded and have a clear path to profitability. The founding team is experienced, including founding Mailgun (which was acquired by Rackspace) and creating significant product offerings at Rackspace. We are a small team, consisting mostly of software engineers.

We are also dedicated to our friends, families, and hobbies outside of work. Our past experiences building companies taught us about the importance of life and work balance. It matters even more when you are building a lasting company, like Gravitational.

About the opportunity

We build software that allows businesses to deploy and manage applications across cloud providers and on-premise infrastructure environments. Our technology is built using the fastest growing open source projects available today: Kubernetes, Docker and other container focused technologies.

Until now, we have been successful bootstrapping sales with the founding team, generating millions of dollars in sales in under a year without any marketing spend. We have developed a popular open source project on Github called Teleport that generates good lead flow and we are closing deals with large technology companies, including telecoms, SaaS providers and enterprise software companies.

The possible market size is large and growing - anyone that manages and operates server fleets and applications across cloud providers and/or internal data centers (i.e., almost all successful companies). There are multiple use cases for our offerings: migrating legacy workloads to the cloud, selling SaaS offerings on-premise, improving the efficiency of Ops and SRE teams, securing internal IT systems, and more.

We need your help to take the business to the next level. We plan on starting by hiring two junior or mid-level sales reps and building the team from there.
