SMB Account Executive - Remote US

San Francisco / United States /
Customer Success /
Rainforest QA is an on-demand testing software startup on a mission to disrupt the antiquated QA industry by enabling teams to deliver bug-free software at the speed of continuous delivery. QA is subjectively measured, inaccessible to most people, and a labor-intensive black box. We aim to make achieving quality easy by empowering everyone to own quality and to deliver results that are meaningful. Our commitment to remote work and to our company values has earned us multiple culture and workplace awards and helped us build a diverse tribe of owners working toward a common goal.

About The Company
We are a truly distributed team, spanning across Asia/Pacific, Europe and North America (our headquarters is in San Francisco). Culturally we implore each other to champion our belief that life is about more than work and that we are all responsible in fostering a culture which can support a team with a diverse set of lifestyle options.

Our Values
Own the Outcome: We are fiercely passionate and detail-obsessed. We take ownership of observed challenges to swiftly overcome obstacles and strive for outcomes that make our customers better off.

No Bulls**t: We all play a part in furthering our organization’s culture, when discussing ideas or challenging existing views, by communicating candidly with thoughtfulness and care. 

Commit and Iterate: We tackle tough situations head-on by making informed bets. We define and measure our success based on our ability to take risks, fail with purpose, and continually iterate on our business.

A Note on Diversity and Inclusion

Pro-environmental Initiatives
As a globally-distributed company, one of our largest negative externalities is travel, specifically air travel. As such, we calculated our annual carbon emissions at 203.59 tonnes of CO2 and paid to offset it until September 26th 2020.
