Below are some questions we asked Taylor— the responses are in his own words.
1. What does your role at Instaclustr entail?
I spend time speaking with clients and talking to prospective clients. I help them with everything around early-stage technical heavy aspects of the deal, initial contact to close, and onboarding. I conduct demos as needed and bring in the right people/specialist to help solve customer problems.
2. What does a typical day look like for you?
My day-to-day is never the same. I have anywhere from one to four meetings per day. I spend a few hours working on quotes for clients, internal and customer meetings, and solving challenges with closing a deal on the technical side. When solving a client’s problem, I have a lot of internal and external conversations with people to make sure we are giving them the best technology possible.
3. How did you first get interested in a technology career?
At ten years old I started to sell pokemon cards on eBay. I was fascinated with using the internet for commerce. I also played many online games, and in college had a natural talent for computers. Then I went into Tech Sales.
4. When did you join Instaclustr—and why?
I joined Instaclustr in May 2021. I was excited for this new opportunity, as it involved more tech than a typical sales job.
5. What’s been your favorite part about Instaclustr since joining?
I was intrigued by Instaclustr because it was a smaller company than I was used to. I also felt the product is very relevant and in-demand; it’s something that people want and need.
6. Why is it an exciting time to be in tech?
Technology is constantly growing. There is always new stuff coming out; it’s the future. The world runs on software, and it is exciting to know what’s happening behind the scenes. Without it, we would be living in the 80s!
