  • Cross-functional Collaboration: Work closely with the sales, marketing, product, and legal teams to develop strategies that penetrate and grow our presence in the federal market. Establish yourself as a thought leader in our field by contributing to industry discussions, publishing articles, and participating in panels and conferences. Leverage this visibility to enhance Everlaw's reputation and influence in the federal sector, driving awareness of our solutions and fostering relationships with key government stakeholders.
