The Job

 Data loss can be devastating. Whether it’s caused by human error, bad code, rogue integrations, or malicious intent; all companies are at risk. OwnBackup is the #1 data backup, archiving, and sandbox seeding app on the Salesforce AppExchange. With over 2,000 customers, we are ranked #25 on Financial Times’ list of America’s fastest growing companies, and have raised $100 million in venture funding.

In many situations, you will work closely with our Partner Development team, but will ultimately be responsible for the successful growth of OwnBackup through acquisitions.

An Insider's view of OwnBackup

How does your team reward individual success?

At Ownbackup, internal promotions are extremely common. This is a key attainable measurement of success, rewarded based on your current role and interest in growth.
Beyond hitting our sales goals and metrics, we look forward to the opportunity to attend Presidents Club held in Aruba every April.

Tara Draganescu

Account Executive

What does your typical day look like?

My day at OwnBackup starts off pretty great. I commute in on the Manhattan shuttle that OwnBackup offers which makes my life that much easier. When I arrive at our HQ I'm greeted by everyone as I walk through the office. I head to my desk, latte in hand, and conduct my morning recruiter calls, review applications, and sync up with hiring managers.

Talent Acquisition

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been privileged with many opportunities to tremendously succeed and grow in my professional career at OwnBackup. I originally started as an SDR and after hitting my metrics I moved up to SDR 2, SDR 3, and then ADR (Account Development Representative) & Team Lead. I now am the Business Development Manager of the SDR team in North America.

Shira Osdoba

Sales Development Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Our team is a very intense and process/transactions driven environment. I always make myself accessible on the “call floor”, for meetings, conversations or just brainstorming. I truly believe in an open-door policy where anything & everything is “on the table”. It’s best to talk everything out, instead of holding it in.

Rob Ween

Regional Vice President

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office at OwnBackup is unlike any other place I’ve worked. When you walk in there’s always people around not only working hard but having a great time while doing it. It's the kind of place where you’re always happy to come in and see your friends (colleagues). The kitchen snacks and happy hours don't hurt either.
