Get to know Klaviyo
Klaviyo is using technology to reinvent email marketing from the ground up. For too long marketing has been pretty selfish. Companies blast everyone with the same email, not because they think that’s what customers want, but because they don’t have a choice. Klaviyo fundamentally changes the game. Our software ties together everything companies know about their customers, processes massive quantities of data in real-time, and uses it to drive a platform that’s part CRM, part analytics engine, and 100% an email platform that gets results. Technology has come a long way in the last 15 years, but email hasn’t really changed. We’re here to fix that.
Why you should join The Sales Engineering Team at Klaviyo
Klaviyo has a unique take on Sales Engineering. While most companies hire SEs to give demos, fill out questionnaires, and explain complicated setups, that makes us yawn. We built a product that anyone can use and we have smart sales reps who are true product experts. So what does our Sales Engineering team do? We work directly with a small percentage of potential customers, alongside our sales team, and use these engagements as an opportunity to learn, prototype, and ship meaningful improvements to the Klaviyo experience. 
What does this mean practically? Well, here are a few examples of what we’ve done recently:
Develop and maintain personal relationships with prospects during the sales process across many different prospects simultaneously.
Act with urgency and precision to give users best in class pre-sales support in troubleshooting issues as they arise.

Become a complete expert in the Klaviyo app, from understanding the data pipelines and code base of our integrations to understanding technical tradeoffs between different implementations.
Solve problems manually first and then either automate future solutions and/or collaborate with Product and Engineering to proactively improve the Klaviyo product and customer experience over time.
Be the go-to internal technical resource for the entire go to market team, educating team members as well as prospects in service of providing a consistently positive Klaviyo experience.
- Using our expert knowledge of Klaviyo’s APIs and data model, we productized several integrations with third-party platforms at the request of prospective customers to help them synchronize data more efficiently and effectively
- After hearing requests for additional flexibility with our email templating language, we wrote code to extend it to support more use cases for more customers
- After helping customers build data pipelines that go depended on syncing data from cloud data warehouses, we wrote product specs to support this more natively 
- We delivered trainings to the Sales team to enable them to better understand technical concepts and autonomously handle advanced technical questions
If you’re an entrepreneurial engineer that gets excited by imagining new features, prototyping solutions, and incubating new technologies - all within the context of actual customer engagements - this could be for you. What you’ll get in return is the opportunity to be part of an extremely high-performing, strategically-important team that works at the exciting intersection of engineering and sales.

An Insider's view of Klaviyo

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The simplest way I would describe the Klaviyo office is "energy". From the minute you start your day there's an excitement that everyone is working toward the common goal of helping businesses grow. It's a pretty amazing thing to be a part of and you can really feel it.

Director of Community Management

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the great things about working at Klaviyo is that I get to work with amazing people from across the organization. While working in Finance isn’t intuitively a role that involves a lot of collaboration - Klaviyo’s finance team has regular interactions and team syncs with Sales Ops, Customer Support and the People Team!
