Head of Sales

SF Compute is hiring a head of sales. You'll be responsible for building relationships with startups and research labs that are looking to train large generative models, and helping to make sure they have a good experience once they're running on our compute.

Sales volume is quite large—you'll have the option to sell contracts in the range of $1m to $100m. Commission is in the range of 1-5% of profit on compute deals.

If you do your job well, half of the startups in silicon valley will be running on our hardware, and they'll be getting a lot more compute for their money with us than they would with anyone else.

About working with us

We have a lot of revenue & profit for a startup. Many startups wander around in the desert for years searching for a successful product to sell. We start by selling a successful product and work to make a second, third, and fourth successful product.

The total comp is quite high. You should expect very high levels of equity. Your initial salary is about average and then will increase quite significantly when our second cluster comes online.

As the name implies, we mostly work in San Francisco. Our office is in Hayes Valley. Many of our customers are physically nearby, in that you can literally walk down the street to meet them.

We probably don't need to say it, but the problems are interesting. We make supercomputers, not SaaS.

Working at San Francisco Compute means helping hundreds of university labs, focused-research organizations, startups and tinkerers get access to ultra powerful machines. This is their biggest bottleneck and we think it's the highest possible leverage you can have as a software engineer to materially push scientific progress forward.

About you

Ideally you have some experience with AI—some of the job is advising companies on whether/how they should scale their models. As we develop more of our own ML tooling, you might be responsible for selling it and advising companies on how to use it as well.

If this sounds like you, please reach out to contact@sfcompute.com.
