DataCamp is building the future of data science education. Our students get real hands-on experience by completing self-paced, interactive data science courses from the best instructors in the world, directly in browser. In fact, over 2 million students around the world have completed 90+ million DataCamp exercises to date! Currently, DataCamp has over 500 businesses and government entities around the world subscribing to our full course library and we will be massively scaling that number in 2018 and beyond.

Reporting to the Chief Sales Officer, you will demo our product to potential customers, prepare customized proposals, document all your work in our CRM system, and be the face of DataCamp to new prospective clients. As an Account Executive you will attend multiple trade shows per year and meet face to face with top prospects as needed. You will also solicit feedback from prospects on what tools they are currently using, what training goals they have, and what new courses and projects they would be looking for from DataCamp.
