How would you describe what it’s like to work in sales at Autodesk in a few sentences?

Autodesk is a highly collaborative sales environment with an amazing, humble culture and incredible leaders and managers. Our sales teams work together to do what is best for our customers. We ensure every client’s needs are met and provide the best solutions possible to make their business more efficient, effective, and profitable.

Our leaders not only want to see you succeed, but they also work very hard to help you develop and move into your next role. It's a good environment to learn SaaS, especially within more entry-level roles. Our account executive and closing roles tend to have a lot of autonomy.

What is Autodesk’s approach to interviews? How does the process work?

The interview process helps us get to know you, and helps you learn about our people, culture, and business. We’ll ask about your skills and experience, and you can ask us questions as well. Be prepared to tell us about your achievements and the value you could bring to Autodesk. 

On average, there will be 5-6 interviews for senior roles and 3-4 interviews for junior roles. Timing typically takes 3-4 weeks but may vary based on role and location, so we suggest you speak with the recruiter for details specific to a particular role.

What’s the one thing you want candidates to know about a career in sales at Autodesk?

It's very rewarding financially and otherwise — there are no limits on what you can accomplish. The world is your oyster!

There are many growth and development opportunities, and the team encourages internal progression. They provide coaching and development that meets you where you are and helps you get to where you want to go. There is a lot to learn from and grow with here!

What makes sales roles at Autodesk different than other companies?

The number one thing? Culture. We’re building a culture of belonging where all employees have equal opportunities to succeed and contribute.

There’s also a lot of collaboration. We have “pit crews” made up of team members from different areas of the business that you can go to for support. You also get to work closely with our partners to achieve their goals – and yours.

Why do people come to work at Autodesk instead of a competitor?

Autodesk is extremely rare based on the humility of even the most brilliant, top leaders within the organization. We offer a true work-life balance with awesome benefits, like sabbaticals* that you are encouraged to take in a timely manner! In addition, there is so much opportunity and encouragement from management to explore new roles in different parts of the company.

Employees are well-trained for their positions and empowered to do their jobs. As an industry leader, we get to enjoy name recognition and credibility within our space. Not to mention, our products are well-designed!

*Benefits may vary by location.

What does the sales organization look like at Autodesk?

We have four regions at Autodesk — AMER, APAC, EMEA, and Japan — and each region has its respective vice president. We have leaders from channel, industry leaders, and inside sales who report directly to the VP. We also have extended business lines like license compliance marketing and demand gen, who work very collaboratively with the VP to meet respective regional numbers. Named accounts (our enterprise business) have their own VPs in APAC, EMEA, and AMER.

No matter which region you’re in, our sales team operates with very high collaboration.
