From Fivetran’s founding until now, our mission has remained the same: to make access to data as simple and reliable as electricity. With Fivetran, customer data arrives in their warehouses, canonical and ready to query, with no engineering or maintenance required. We’re proud that more organizations continue to leverage our technology every day to become truly data-driven.

Our Sales team needs a technical ace in the hole for when the questions get tough. You’ll work one-on-one with both prospects and Sales team members to help discuss how Fivetran fits within their technology strategy.  You’ll have a full understanding of how Fivetran is architected and a clear understanding of how Fivetran is best used. Additionally, you’ll be tasked to invent and implement creative solutions for edge-case issues. This is a full time position and regular Denver office attendance is required.

  • Proactively engage with product and engineering teams on roadmap, soliciting and sharing customer/prospect feedback where necessary.  
  • Assist in documentation efforts around Fivetran product offerings, internal knowledge base, and training resources.


Your Superpowers:

  • Technical experience as a database administrator, backend engineer, or IT services within an enterprise or tech startup
  • Experience successfully demonstrating and articulating the value of Business Intelligence and Analytics tools
  • Proficiency in SQL programming 
  • Knowledge in Python/JavaScript and API interaction
  • Ability to influence technical audiences in their language, and influence business audiences by translating complex technology concepts
  • Passion for data and analytics, a philosophy of using technology to help solve business problems
  • Keen analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Curiosity to learn and assimilate technical information quickly, enthusiasm to share and teach others
  • Available for up to 10% regional travel


Perks of working with us:

  • 100% paid Medical, Dental, Vision and Basic Life Insurance

  • Commuter Benefits to help with transit and parking costs
  • Professional development and training opportunities
  • Unlimited coffee, office snacks and frequent catered lunches
  • Company happy hours and fun team building activities

An Insider's view of Fivetran

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

"Our work-life balance is less about "balance" and more about flowing seamlessly between the two. Everyone understands that to be our best in the workplace we have to embrace our true selves. That means a bike ride or yoga in the middle of the day is a priority so we can deliver great results for our customers, company, colleagues, and ourselves."

Mike Faber

Sales Leader Enablement Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

" I collaborated with other departments on a weekly if not daily basis. Our core value of One Team One Dream ensures that everyone makes decisions that are in the best interest of the organization."

Andrew Sutherland

Business Development Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Fivetran is a true rocketship. I didn’t realize what an incredible company I was joining, so I feel lucky to be here every day. Everyone loves Fivetran whether they’re a customer or they’re an employee. We all strive toward a common goal of making Fivetran the best, and we’ve done a pretty amazing job at it.

Rachel Musiker

Account Executive

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I just celebrated my one year anniversary with Fivetran! The accelerated growth has given me so many chances to learn new things and show off my skills! I’ve already been promoted twice and have more ambitious goals ahead!
