Considering a move to Zendesk as a Senior a commercial Account Executive.

I'd love to hear from people who have worked in Sales at Zendesk and whether the brand and experience helped them on their career growth.

I'm currently selling a very technical solution (Observability platform at New Relic) and wondering how beneficial it would be to sell something completely different

AdTech Sales - Account Executive. No experience in Sales, but was in client services with my company for 10 years.

Base 142 with 100% match, so 284 OTE. Accelerators after 100, which doubles up to 125. (101 to goal will garner 102 in commission, 105 will 110, caps out at 125 so max is 150% commission)

Q1 is looking good already so feel good about things. But curious if this is a good deal.

Account Manager here, 3 years experience, background in Proj Mgmt. I am noticing pretty clearly a trend to move into SaaS sales, specifically B2B. It seems like the income is higher and the wfh/hybrid situation is more flexible. If I wanted to move into a role similar in a couple of years, is there any industry information I can be reviewing or is it too broad to really focus on any one company or product? It is a bit overwhelming, as the product I sell now is very niche.
