Team Description

Our Sales and Channel teams share Dropbox Business with companies around the world, helping them understand the power Dropbox has to offer teams at scale. The Sales Strategy team develops insights to assess business performance, and leads initiatives to identify new sources of growth. We work closely with senior sales leaders to develop shared goals, and do the planning and execution necessary to make those goals a reality.

Role Description 

The role of an Account Manager serves as the sales interface for our existing accounts, maintaining strong relationships with customers and sales partners. Responsible for collaborating with key internal teams (customer-facing technical departments, customer success, and various internal back-office teams), the Account Manager takes on the responsibility of expanding business with assigned clients.

By building trust with existing accounts, proposing appropriate utilization of services, understanding customer issues, and providing resolution proposals, the Account Manager enhances customer satisfaction.

As Dropbox celebrates its 15th year since its founding, it enters a new phase as an AI-first company, envisioning a second era of innovation. Considering the value that can be delivered to customers through new Dropbox solutions, the Account Manager engages in daily dialogues with accounts to identify opportunities for upselling and cross-selling. Proactively collaborating with the global counterparts in the same position, there is also the potential for building a robust career in future sales. We are seeking individuals with the ability to enhance and maintain good relationships with customers, intuitive insights into business, strong problem-solving skills, energy, and a commitment to long-term success. Join us if you are someone who can contribute to the improvement of customer relations and thrive in the business, offering a lasting impact.
