Commercial Software Sales Executive

Centrifuge Systems, Inc., an established venture-backed software company in McLean, VA, seeks a Commercial Software Sales Executive to join its rapidly growing team.

Centrifuge Systems is a leading provider of next generation big data discovery business intelligence software.  Our groundbreaking approach to finding the needle in the haystack brings together three compelling innovations to the problem: a unique link analysis and analytics perspective, cutting edge interactive visualization, and fully browser accessible/embeddable environment.

Our software is for everyone with data and questions about that data. Traditional business intelligence solutions require users to define what they want to see in advance and present the results in static dashboards. With Centrifuge, users determine what is of interest on the fly then manipulate the results in a highly revealing and visually interactive fashion. These unique capabilities have positioned the company for high growth and market leadership in the enterprise link analysis space. Today Centrifuge is used in some of the most demanding applications in the world, including counter-terrorism, insurance fraud, law enforcement, financial analysis, telecom operations, cyber security, and homeland defense.
