About Semgrep

Our mission is to make world-class software security available to everyone. This means building program analysis tools that are open source, easy to use, powerful, and fast. It also means building a team with security expertise and a passion for great developer experiences. Most of all, it means working with honesty and respect in a diverse community of dreamers and builders. We’ve redefined static analysis tooling by committing to all of these, and turned our project, Semgrep, into an essential safeguard for code at Snowflake, Dropbox, and more.

About the role

You'll be an Enterprise Account Executive in one of the fastest growing products in the DevSecOps market, working with some of the best Application Security and Developer teams in the world. You'll be an astute ambassador for your customers while tenaciously growing Semgrep's business.

Along the way, you’ll learn how to scale a sales organization and take a developer-centric security product to market. You will grow your career by being an early member of a high-growth startup backed by Sequoia Capital, Redpoint Ventures, and Felicis Ventures. As the company grows, so will your career opportunities.

As a member of our team, you’ll be a part of the decisions that make an early-stage startup successful and your work will be critical to our mission. Every customer you onboard will have a measurable impact on their software security. We’re excited to see what you do.

What you’ll do

  • Work with the large Enterprise customers in a variety of industries, from banking to software development SaaS companies and everything in between
  • Own customer engagements end-to-end, from prospecting and qualification to negotiation and close
  • Once you land an account, you’ll onboard and grow them with additional products or increased Semgrep usage

  • You are tenacious: build 4-5x pipeline, advance deals, work the organization chart, know how to align resources. Ultimately, you know how to GSD - Get Stuff Done!
  • You are resilient: you will take early morning or late evening customer calls and travel for customer onsite meetings
  • You have 5-10 years of sales experience in high pace environments with consistent quota achievement. You have closed multiple 6 or 7-figure deals a year, several years in a row within large Enterprise organizations. Bonus: relevant AppSec experience and/or early stage startup experience
  • You have excellent customer orientation: possess record breaking SLAs in responding to any and all customer needs
  • Are an expert in working asynchronously using Slack, Google Suite, email, video conferencing, etc.
  • You have the technical aptitude to become fluent in the Semgrep and the DevSecOps industry


  • Salary Range: $110,000 - $125,000* USD ($220,000 - $250,00 uncapped OTE)
  • Our compensation package includes equity and benefits in addition to salary.

Our benefits are for everyone, so that you’re taken care of, and we work with individuals to make sure they have what they need, whether that’s quiet work space, adjusted hours, or something else.
