Job Description: Account Executive


$75,000 to $85,000 base salary ($150K OTE with uncapped commission) + stock options 



Remote / Hybrid / Office (Birmingham, AL or Washington, DC)

HData is seeking to immediately hire an Account Executive to drive continued rapid growth and adoption of the HData Platform, including Regulatory AI, across the energy industry. In this role, you will be responsible for building and maintaining new relationships with key leaders across the industry in order to drive revenue for HData.

HData is a Techstars backed startup company delivering automated compliance, instant business intelligence, and AI for regulatory energy analysis across the U.S. regulated energy industry.

The HData Platform is the only SaaS solution that allows energy companies and their regulators to quickly and easily prepare their government filings while also instantly generating comparative analytics across hundreds of indicators and millions of data points. The platform turns research that used to take hours into seconds. Our demand is driven by a government mandate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) which requires all energy companies to begin reporting electronically by December 2021.
