As the leading Strategic Planning Platform, Elate helps companies connect long-term vision with tactical execution in a simple, intuitive way. Built by Strategy and Operations Leader for Strategy and Operations Leaders, Elate is redefining the way companies go about strategic planning by simplifying the experience for employees and surfacing proactive insights that elevate the results of strategic initiatives in a measurable way.

With world-class investors and a year of exponential growth, Elate is taking this success to the next level in 2024. Companies are continuing to invest earlier and more aggressively in Strategy & Operations teams, and this shift isn't slowing down any time soon. We are now seeking the right individuals to help take advantage of this exciting opportunity that lies ahead.

Elate is looking for Account Executives (AE) to help drive growth by closing new business, generating sales leads, and owning the entirety of the sales pipeline. As an Account Executive, you will be responsible for working target accounts within our ideal customer profile, breaking into new accounts, and consistently meeting or exceeding quota.

This role will be a foundational member of the team, working directly alongside the Sales Leader and CEO as one of the early hires of the Sales Team. You will be joining Elate on the ground floor of a venture capital-funded software startup and will be given the opportunity to see firsthand what it looks like to scale a high-growth company. Unlike a traditional AE role, this opportunity comes with the opportunity to quickly advance through opportunities in managing enterprise-level accounts, as well as the opportunity to earn leadership positions.

As an early member of the Sales Team, you will be working closely to continue building out the sales process, develop go-to-market strategies, and identify new opportunities to advance the company.

With aggressive growth goals and the leading platform for Strategy and Operations Leaders, there are limitless opportunities for personal and professional growth. We are looking for candidates with a desire to grow fast and be a part of the incredible team we are building.
