About us

3T Software Labs has one mission: to build the finest NoSQL tools available. Over the last six years we have firmly established ourselves at the forefront of NoSQL innovation and the NoSQL tooling market with over 400,000 active users of our industry leading IDE, Studio 3T. We have teammates from over 30 nationalities working both from our offices and remotely in Berlin and Cambridge, UK.

Purpose of job:

Our Named AE’s (NAE’s) are responsible for hunting, developing, and closing business from some of our largest Enterprise Accounts and opportunities. A Named Account Exec will own, develop, and communicate account plans internally, and lead the execution on a complex set of sales strategies to senior stakeholders for an assigned territory of $5bn+ Mkt Cap ICP companies in the Finance, Tech, Healthcare for our rapidly growing business.

In addition to targeted outbound to the top accounts in their territory our NAE‘s will also take the lead on various Enterprise deals that enter the funnel elsewhere in region through inbound – Studio 3T is the most downloaded tool in the world for MongoDB with over fifteen thousand downloads every week and we are growing fast with fortune 500 companies, Mid Market and some of the most well known Enterprise logos taking on enterprise licenses.

Our Named AE’s must have prior hunting and closing experience with strong professional presence and an advanced set of sales skills they will harness to maximise every commercial opportunity. NAE’s must also be great communicators capable of working cross functionally to support Enterprise Accounts with the right level of resources and to influence the future of our solutions in line with Enterprise customer needs.

Person specification:

We are looking for highly intelligent, driven, and dynamic AE’s with experience selling regular six figure (TCV) deals into enterprise accounts or high value Mid Market. Our EAE’s must posses a strong professional presence, a high business acumen, and a value based approach to proposals and negotiation. It’s preferable though not necessary that applicants for the NAE level have experience negotiating multiyear deals, true up models and or Term Licensing through bespoke enterprise agreements.

Our NAE’s must have excellent discovery, account planning, and business development skills ideally trained in MEDDPICC/MEDDIC and some form of account planning methodology (although we do also provide this training and regular coaching).

Whilst Studio 3T offers highly technical solutions for Mongo DB Database Development no former ‘technical tech’ experience is necessary as long as the candidate is capable of learning a few key technical concepts initially, and is committed to becoming a domain expert over time. (we provide lots of technical training and support)

A Named AE will be a natural leader capable of using, influencing, and organising key internal resources in support of strategic account plans, and they will be an internal champion for our biggest customers.
