On a day to day basis, you will own a portfolio of strategic accounts and provide ad hoc assistance to smaller accounts. These accounts will be across multiple verticals and located across the US.

  • You can see the needle in the haystack. As a trusted advisor to our customers, you will be pivotal in spotting new opportunities where Imply could add even more value for them
