This hyper-growth is being driven by our incredibly high-caliber sales team.

 

Aqua Security is currently hiring a Regional Account Manager for the Chicago region. In this position, you will use your sales skills and strong relationship building capabilities to generate new customer opportunities focusing on a mix of commercial and large enterprise accounts.

  • Tell a great story about the capabilities Aqua offers and how to turn that into business outcomes and project initiatives
  • Thrive in a dynamic and fast-growing startup environment where you can work very independently and without a large supporting staff
