About The Role
Percona is at an extraordinary period of time and we are looking to add a Resellers & Channels Lead to our outstanding sales team. This is an outstanding opportunity to build and lead a new area of focus in a bootstrapped company with a fantastic reputation.

The Resellers & Channels Lead will build out a repeatable channel program - find, sign and train new partners, and enable new partners to sell more. This role will be measured by dollars brought in by partners and onboarding speed of new partners. This is a quota-based role, which includes a base salary, commission and MBO bonus.

You Will Be Successful If:
Percona has a group of partners that contributes to an increasing amount of revenue-to-partner lead activities
Percona has a world-class repeatable reseller/channel program with a growing organization
Partners are enabled and have what they need to be successful
