Interested in this position?

While I have been in technology sales for years, I had NEVER sold SaaS prior to coming to OPSWAT. My transition was easy since OPSWAT has incredible products with a World Class Customer Success Team and an amazingly creative and responsive engineering/design team. It is easy for me to speak about the benefits of our solutions which makes selling our products easy.
