UserGems is the future of outbound sales. We apply artificial intelligence to create alignment across revenue teams throughout the entire funnel and identify who to best target for their sales and marketing outreach. We’re growing 5X year-over-year and recently raised $20M series A from Craft Ventures, Uncork Capital, Battery Ventures, Tiger Global, and more.

We're looking for a VP of Engineering to build and manage our Engineering team. You’ll have the unique opportunity to shape the engineering department of a fast-growing and well-funded startup according to your vision. Help us to scale from 30-200 employees in the next 2 years.

What is UserGems

We monitor a company’s existing customer list for job changes and alert their sales teams whenever someone moves to a new company.

Each month, our customers get a list of people they should reach out to – identified and ranked by our proprietary algorithm. This algorithm combines thousands of data points to generate the best possible prospecting list, uniquely tailored to them.

Example: Jared was using AWS when he worked at Hooli. Now that he’s working at Pied Piper, he could be interested in using AWS again. We’ll alert AWS’ sales team of Jared’s job change. Jared already knows AWS and might be interested to hear what AWS has to offer for Pied Piper.
