Hi there, I got an offer for an early stage cyber security saas startup in Canada and they offered me 130k base and 10-15% commissions which they estimated at 160-240k additional a year. They only have 1 sales person at the moment and I would be 2nd and they are hiring for 3 more. I’ve always been on a 50:50 model and never done the % of revenue. Average deal size is 40k. I got 12 yoe in enterprise tech sales. No stock options upfront but potentially after the first 3 months. Good deal?

Is this in USD or CAD? Usually cyber SaaS sales people are making $150k - $175k USD base and have on-target OTEs in the $300k - $350k USD range. Also, get the stock commitment in writing before you join. The "potentially" thing sounds sketchy.

Ahh CAD makes much more sense. I would take it if you don't have any other offers lined up

Turned down a Canadian cybersec role. 200k+200k with equity at $50k seed value
Because their plan sucked. Too many decelerators.

Know your value

Has anyone else had a mentor (assigned to them by the Company) who seemed to have it out for you? I mean downright sabotage to make you look bad left and right. I didn’t realize it at first. She was fake friendly, but she was discrete too. Some of the executives thought she was amazing, but I had to clean up her work all the time. She wasn’t above me either on the chain of command. Later I found out she had tried for the exec assistant role and they didn’t choose her, they wanted me instead.

Was wondering if yall know of any remote sales jobs with a good starting base salary? I'm doing great at my current role selling senior health insurance (76k give or take a year) but I know I'm capable of selling at a higher commission range. My calls at my last company were all cold (around 100 a day). I got job offers as a recruiter and also a few SDR offers but both fields the base is under 45k. I have a four year degree and one year of sales experience. Thank you

Thoughts on leaving a commercial AE role from Salesforce to a smaller company (Snowflake/MongoDB/Databricks etc). I have consistently been 150%+ of OTE at SFDC but know for a fact my comp is way under the market. Would be moving into an EAE role and almost doubling base and OTE. Seems like a no brainer but at the same time too good to be true? Has anyone out there made the move and can provide feedback?
