About The Company
BigMachines is the global leader in delivering cloud-based mission critical applications to the Fortune 2000. Our industry-leading solutions help companies Sell More and Sell Faster, configuring, pricing, and quoting their complex products.
For the fifth consecutive year we had two great distinctions: landing on the "Inc 5000 list of Fastest Growing Companies" and being voted #1 on Salesforce's AppExchange. BigMachines also just delivered another record-setting year in bookings, revenue, profitability, and customer acquisitions. We do all of this while managing to maintain an industry-leading 95% customer retention rate.
We are looking to add exceptional talent across our entire company of great people who play hard as a reward for working even harder. At BigMachines, we thrive on using unique and unconventional methods to drive remarkable employee success. (We might have an amazing reputation, but we?re not above taking breaks for cheesecake bake-offs and Nerf gun battles.)
We are committed to hiring really smart, hip and altogether fantastic people who are intellectually invigorated and inspired by advancing their careers.
