Account Executive, Canada (Defense & Public Safety)

Chainalysis Inc.



About the job

The global financial ecosystem is changing. Revolutionary blockchain technology has unlocked the potential for people around the world to have more equal access to wealth and information. This transformation has begun with the mass global adoption of cryptocurrencies but like all new financial systems, it needs greater trust to realize its full potential and remain safe from bad actors. Thatโ€™s where we come in. The Chainalysis blockchain data platform enables businesses, governments, and banks to solve the worldโ€™s most high-profile criminal cases, paving the way for an economy built on blockchains.


The sales team responsible for our public sector customers around the world is driven by our mission to make the world a safer place by tracking and investigating activities that involve cryptocurrencies like human trafficking, terrorist financing, money-laundering and cyber security. Weโ€™re experts on the โ€œwhyโ€ and the โ€œhowโ€ with deep relationships and knowledge of navigating government sales processes.


Our Account Executives for the public sector have existing and trustworthy reputations within government customers and prospects, and are experts on navigating complex procurement processes. We measure success by new business and account expansion revenue.
