Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we have presence throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We're on a journey to becoming a globally anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-bias company that actively opposes racism and all forms of oppression and bias. At Twilio, we support diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business. We employ thousands of Twilions worldwide, and we're looking for more builders, creators, and visionaries to help fuel our growth momentum.

About the job

Twilio is looking for a Sales Leader to run our Segment sales organizations in APJ. The ideal candidate will lead a team of Segment Sales Account Executives responsible for driving the entire opportunity sales cycle from discovery to closure, employing a solution-oriented sales methodology with a focus on customer data and marketing activation use cases. 

The right person for this role is a go-getter, who wants to develop people and identify new revenue opportunities in Enterprise, Mid-Market, and Growth companies. You are the right candidate if you have a passion for new logo acquisition and experience in driving scaled motions around customer expansion.  Responsibilities will span managing AEs that drive the end to end sales process from marketing generated leads and outbound self generated prospects. Additional responsibilities  include the execution of GTM strategies in the region in close collaboration with respective marketing and sales engineering teams.

If you are a leader who believes deeply in building inclusive and anti-racist environments, allowing employees from all backgrounds to contribute, grow and prosper, we’d love to hear from you.  As a senior leader in APJ, you must be a visible advocate and champion for our values, the Twilio Magic, helping build Twilio’s brand as an inclusive and diverse employer both internally and within the communities of our hubs in APJ. You must believe a diverse team, from the top down, allows all employees to achieve their full potential and as a result will allow Twilio to reach our goals, collectively.


At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. Unfortunately, most product managers, analysts, and marketers spend too much time searching for the data they need, while engineers are stuck integrating the tools they want to use. Segment standardizes and streamlines data infrastructure with a single platform that collects, unifies, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. That way, our customers can focus on building amazing products and personalized messages for their customers, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. 

Continuing to build out and grow our APJ business is a strategic component to our go-to-market strategy.  We bring incredible value to growth, mid-market and enterprise companies, and thrive on finding new use cases to optimize their customer engagement.  With no vertical restraints, the sky's the limit to what we can accomplish.

In this role, you will:

  • Help develop and execute strategy for massive growth of our sales team
  • Recruit, develop and enable a team of account executives
  • Oversee and ensure successful execution of high velocity and strategic sales cycles

  • Motivate individuals and team to exceed targets through coaching and mentorship
  • Accurately forecast the business
  • Meet and exceed monthly, quarterly and annual sales goals
  • Cultivate sales through a specialist design framework aligned with the Twilio generalist organization
