The role

We’re looking for a Global head of SDR to oversee a team of inbound and outbound enterprise SDR’s and SDR Managers.

The team empowers our strategic and enterprise customers to measure, report and act with our enterprise sustainability platform at the core. As a founding leader of our go-to-market organization, you’ll work directly with our Head of Revenue to help build the sales playbook, shape Watershed’s product, build a stellar team, and accelerate pipeline generation across the world.

We are looking for this hire to be in our HQ office in San Francisco where our sales development team is based.

  • Oversee day-to-day sales development representatives operations while setting clear expectations and managing performance goals across the global sales development team.

Where does Watershed work?

We have hub offices in San Francisco, New York and London, and some remote team members in the US and EU. Most of our jobs need to be in San Francisco / New York / London, but certain jobs are open to being remote and will be specifically noted on the jobs page and in the job description.

What’s the interview process like?

It starts the same for every candidate: getting to know the team members through 1 to 2 conversations about Watershed, your experience, and your interests. Next steps can vary by role, but usual next steps are a skill or experience screen (e.g. a coding interview for an engineer, a portfolio review for a designer, deeper experience call for other roles) which leads to a virtual or in person interview panel after that if the screens go well. We prioritize transparency and lack of surprise throughout the process.
