Highest TC Sales & Business Development Companies

Oct 8, 2019 13 Comments

I assume that many of the companies popularly discussed on Blind that offer high TC tech roles also offer high TC sales and business development opportunities.

What companies and sales/BD roles offer the highest TC (focused on minimum $500K TC annually, but ideally above $1M) for sales and BD? Seeking to identify the upper echelons of individual contributor roles, as well as management positions.

Product categories I have previous experience selling/am interested broadly in are IoT, SaaS, AI, Cloud, Telecom Infrastructure/Services, Security, Hardware, Managed Services and other related categories. Based in US and seeking to continue working remotely. Happy in my current role, but always interested to see what I might level-up to.

    This is obviously a troll post, but the real answer to it is global account executives at the major enterprise software companies - Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, SAP. Many of these guys manage a portfolio that is $200M+/year and get compensated proportionately

    • Tam at gcp is non commission. And I have only 3.5 YOE so I'd much rather get my current Tc while learning. I am a excellent communicator and think that I am very suited to sales. Along with my experience (and masters) in data science I think gcp will be a great fit for me selling to ml heavy clients. I was a little concerned about leaving data science at a technical level but your points above paint a clear path for my career at a company like Google. Thanks a lot.

    Splunk to be honest. If you are 310 percent or over you make over 1m

      Any legit enterprise AE role if you 3x your number you should be over 1M. I have heard good things about Splunk though

    AWS enterprise field sales (I’d assume same or similar for Azure with GCP further behind)

    On the biz dev side you’re also looking at Partner level at VCs.

    Really most enterprise field seller roles will get you 300K+ then look at the industry leaders to find the top billers.
