Account Executive

| Greater NYC Area

At some companies you can feel the momentum building. People are engaged, they're approaching their work with energy, enthusiasm and resilience. Being part of the organisation becomes part of your own identity.

At others, it feels impossible to get everyone pulling in the same direction. People lose sight of the company's purpose, they start looking out only for themselves – or elsewhere for new opportunities.

We started Peakon to help companies around the world build better workplaces. Where employees know they're listened to, managers learn from their own decisions and develop as leaders, and entire organisations see a step-change in what they can achieve.

Trust and transparency guide everything we do. At Peakon you’ll find a transparent salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends…

An Insider's view of Peakon

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a truly global company, cross-functional (and transatlanic) collaboration is essential on a daily basis—whether that’s working with a US-based AD to strategize an account expansion or setting up a customer feedback call with our Copenhagen-based Product team.

How does your team reward individual success?

Working in Sales at Peakon, one of the best feelings is being able to hit gong in the office when a deal closes. We recognize individual successes in any team at Peakon, though, by sharing them through Slack. Its always really rewarding to see colleagues from around the world celebrating your success as well.
