What’s in, who’s in Ashburn Virginia? My website is constantly hit by numerous different IP address there. Tech? Advertising agencies? It’s weird.

I had someone hack into my phone once and troll me via IG dms.. the IP address was in ashburn VA. I asked around and posted in forums, it seems like a vpn type thing that masks where they really are and a ton of people who use it show up at “ashburn va” .. they could be anywhere

Its bot traffic.

Hmm that is very interesting. I'm not sure what that is about.

People from Martin and arts and letters.

Nobody I know. That’s a couple hours from Richmond.

SalesForce folks, a recruiter reached out for an opportunity to interview for a AE position in my specialty. I noticed there is also an opp available locally for a Strategic Account Manager in my vertical as well.
Any one know of pay difference between the two, responsibilities/expectations, how they are viewed in the org itself?
I understand they are different but in my job today, I handle both roles so can go in either direction.
Appreciate any input.
