West Coast

We are looking for a deeply technical Strategic Technical Account Manager (TAM), to join our team.This role could be based remotely, or close to any West Coast metro area in the U.S. As a Strategic Technical Account Manager, you will drive maximum adoption of Sysdig’s products and identify expansion opportunities via high value relationships with our customers, ensuring they remain successful by realizing the full value of their investment with us.
