We Are

At RelationalAI, we are enabling the future of data-centric systems that learn, reason, and predict, built on our cloud-native relational knowledge graph management system. We are bringing together a global team of exceptional people who inspire and respect one another to achieve our mission.

We are intellectually curious, with problem-solving mindsets and a proven track record of delivering results. We value the ability to learn, grow, and respond to an ever-changing landscape of challenges and opportunities as much as we value past experience.

RelationalAI is a remote-first company that has been operating with a distributed team since day one. We are based on six continents, support team members wherever they live, and are fluent in the tools and processes of distributed and often asynchronous work.

About the Sales Engineering Team

Sales Engineers at RelationalAI serve as the trusted technical advisors for our customers and often act as the key translator and facilitator across functional groups. They use their knowledge of the competitive landscape, industry trajectory and prevailing market trends to drive business value, offer advice, and support our customers as they deploy solutions.

Rel Practitioners at RelationalAI leverage deep knowledge of the Rel language and RAI's unique architecture to build data apps that prospects are dreaming about but have been unable to implement with existing legacy technologies. They combine their modeling, coding, database, graph, and ML/AI skills to demonstrate the business value of Rel and the Relational Knowledge Graph.

The Opportunity

At RelationalAI we are defining a new approach to developing analytic solutions or “Data Apps” utilizing the vast amounts of complex data now available to our customers. As the complexity grows for both us and our customers, we are looking to our Sales Engineers to strategize and lead customers in use case discovery, RelationalAI evangelism, and oftentimes helping new users with concepts like declarative programming, business modellng, or AI/ML.

We are in search of insightful and intellectually curious pre-sales professionals looking for their next challenge.

Covid has driven us to a nearly entirely virtual sales motion at this time, making physical location less important except in terms of timezones. However, as the world continues to re-open we expect to eventually resume some measure of in-person sales activity. Candidates should be US-based and prepared for travel when it becomes appropriate.
