Eloqua is looking for an entrepreneurial-style Regional Sales Manager…someone with drive, who will walk through brick walls without having to be asked to achieve whatever goal is in front of them. This role is perfect for someone inherently curious. A person who loves what they do and devours information related to their field, their profession and their craft. They read about it, study it, talk to other people about it... immerse themselves in it, continuously. And work like hell to stay current in it! Not because they have to, but because they love to.
