  • Provide specifications to prospects and respond to functional and technical elements of RFIs/RFPs
  • Manage deal cycle and deliverables including SOW and MSAs in line with compliance requirements
  • Build strong relationships within our partner’s sales organization, providing value in their sales cycle
  • Log all Salesforce licensing leads to ensure ACV is attributed to Oktana
  • Track and report on pipeline status, including escalation to appropriate internal management
