Posted on Tuesday, May 28, 2024
A named leader by Forrester in the sales performance management space, Varicent was founded in 2005 when we pioneered sales performance management software. Evolving quickly to become the fastest growing software company in North America according to Deloitte’s Fast 50™ in 2010, Varicent was acquired by IBM in 2012 and has since been re-founded as an independent global business serving mid-size and enterprise clients with our full suite of solutions to assist in smarter territory and quota planning, efficient lead to revenue operations, and the fastest and most flexible way to pay sellers accurately and on-time. We are looking for talented, driven people that can make an impact across our organization.
Moving at our pace brings a lot of change, complexity, and ambiguity. Varicenters are comfortable being uncomfortable. ​
Before you apply, consider if you : ​
· Respect diverse backgrounds and perspectives.​
· Be resilient and resourceful in face of ambiguity and thrive on (rather than endure) change.​
· Bring critical thought and opinion — and embrace differences and disagreement to get work done and move forward.​
At Varicent, we are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. We believe in equality and recognize the value that diverse perspectives bring to our team.
