JOB DESCRIPTION

An exciting opportunity to join a leading vendor in cyber security. A Major Account Manager at DigiCert is a strategic sales role responsible for managing and expanding relationships with our tier 1 enterprise customers.

At DigiCert we pride ourselves on our collaborative customer-first nature. All team members are willing to help each other and find enjoyment in each other’s success.
