  • Revenue Goals: Achieve significant sales milestones

What you need to succeed (Requirements)

  • B2B SaaS Sales Expertise : At least 3 years of experience in SaaS sales, with a proven track record in a startup environment, preferably in the early stages (VC-backed Seed or Series A).

  • Leadership in Scaling Sales : Demonstrated experience in scaling sales operations from the ground up, including setting up sales processes, CRM systems, and building a sales team.

  • Achievement of Significant Sales Targets : History of meeting or exceeding significant sales targets, with the ability to close deals of varying sizes, and achieving rapid sales growth.

  • Building Customer Relationships : Strong experience in building and maintaining relationships with key decision-makers in businesses, preferably in developer-facing products.

  • Marketing Drive content creation and marketing initiatives to grow our brand within the industry

Join us in our mission to empower developers worldwide

Mintlify's platform reaches 12m+ developers every year and power the documentation of 2000+ companies. We're also the #1 most popular YC product used by other YC companies in the past four years.

What's Mintlify?

The best companies have effective and user-centric documentation at their backbone. Mintlify helps any company achieve the documentation they need effortlessly, so that they can focus on building what they do best.

Our team has worked across transformative tech companies, gone through YC, and found some amazing investors from Bain Capital Ventures and the founders of Vercel, Sourcegraph, and other top developer tooling companies. We’re well capitalized and ready to put it to good use.

We're an in-person team in SF and hire for in-person, but we can always make exceptions for exceptional people :)

Our values

We’re a small team with big dreams - and the culture we create is just as important to us as the product we’re building.

📈 Growth oriented

Slope y intercept. We invest in people and growth as the company grows.

💚 Humility

Everyone has a lot to give and a lot to learn. Egos are not allowed.

🌟 Customer focused

We love our customers. We make decisions by focusing relentlessly on them - and accept if this means changing our ideas. Customer success is our success.

💡 Intellectual honesty

We believe in creating an environment where the best ideas win and acknowledging when we are wrong.

👾 Hack to success

We move fast and take big swings. We always aim for a solution that addresses 80% of the problem in 20% of the time. We make educated bets, launch MVPs, and iterate.

🔥 Having fun

Be unapologetically you! We love our game-nights, ping pong tournaments, bufo emojis, and cow jokes (the CEO knows over 100 of them and TechCrunch made fun of him for it).
