The Technical Account Manager serves as the primary business contact for SendGrid’s major accounts; understanding their business, acting as an internal advocate and proactively monitoring customer activity. The TAM will develop new and repeat business with existing customers. The ideal candidate will have great project management skills, excellent technical credentials, and most importantly, a friendly, consultative approach to addressing customer needs. Because SendGrid is small, nimble and fast-growing, the TAM will occasionally wear multiple hats, sometimes helping insides sales with tracking and closing new business and also acting as a Sales Engineer for more complicated sales.
