Silktide is self-funded and is more than doubling in size each year. We plan to continue at this growth rate. To achieve that, we need more talented account executives to join our team in the US market.

We have ambitious plans to improve the quality of the web. We believe every website should be accessible, compliant, and of high quality. Our Silktide platform is the first step in our mission.

What we’re like

We heavily promote an open culture. Every member of our team keeps a Slack journal, to log their thoughts, work, and ideas. Everyone can read these. Want to know exactly what your CEO is working on? Done.

Freedom is key to Silktide. We’ll give you the freedom to choose your work, your tech, your working hours, and of course, your location! We don’t clock in and out, in fact, we don’t check your hours. As long as your work is done, the rest is up to you.

We’re growing fast and need smart, ambitious, and trustworthy people to join our team.

As a Senior Account Executive, you’ll work with a territory SDR who’ll fill your pipeline with qualified leads.
