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 fourth 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.
