National Account Executive

PayScale is launching a new National Accounts Team focusing on F1000 companies. Our revenues in this sector have increased 300% in the last two years and PayScale is now creating a separate division with specific focus on F1000.

The NAE position will focus on improving the top and bottom lines of Fortune 1000 companies nationwide through expanding current relationships, while also selling to new decision-makers within accounts. Our key decision-makers include the C-suite and Vice Presidents (of Sales/Marketing, Technology, HR/Compensation and Operations), where having the right talent matters to the top line! NAEs have the opportunity to positively impact a company by creating a formal compensation strategy in line with the clients’ business strategy. NAEs learn how each customer makes money and the impact of turnover, C players, and open positions on the customers’ business. Through conducting both quantitative and qualitative analyses, NAEs draw meaningful conclusions from the data, and present these analyses and conclusions to their clients. Specifically, closing underpayment and overpayment gaps that lead to high turnover, sub optimal performance and morale and create difficulty in attracting and retaining the best employees.

  • Company & Solution Knowledge : NAEs must understand PayScale and its people, processes, and solutions, through knowing the company and exemplifying our vision and values, describing our products and solutions, and optimizing our resources and technology.
  • Individual Effectiveness : NAEs drive business results by leveraging and expanding their personal capabilities and qualities, including initiative, decision making, planning, and resilience.
  • Bachelor’s degree from accredited college or university; MBA a plus
