  • Overview

    SolarWinds is a different kind of software company.  Rather than sell to CIOs through a large and expensive outside sales force, we sell directly to the user through our inside-only sales team.  That means that rather than focusing on expense accounts and dinners, we focus on driving a high volume of qualified leads through our website.  At SolarWinds, our website is our outside sales force and our storefront all rolled into one.  It is a mission critical part of our business.  If you are passionate about marketing analytics and looking for a great next step for your career, then this is the job for you.
