Who we are

StarLifter is on a mission to simplify and streamline data analysis for every scenario.  Our platform replaces the patchwork of solutions operators are using to get the insight they need to run their business.  This includes (1) business intelligence tools and their required data analysis stacks, (2) purpose-built point solutions (think FP&A reporting, KPI software, customer QBR reporting), and (3) the dreaded spreadsheet supported by a team member. 

 

In short, we are the answer to the "there has to be another way" heard from most office suites and operations floors.

 

Founded in early 2022, we are based in Indianapolis with an office in San Diego.  We believe our bold vision may only be realized by attracting and retaining the right talent.  

The role

We are looking for sales professionals who can help us in our next phase of growth. Are you someone who thrives in a growth stage company, where part of the fun is figuring it all out? If it’s easy to communicate the art of “what’s possible”, you have a proven track record of quota attainment, and a knack for leading a sales process heavy on outbound opportunities, keep reading.
