Employee Spotlight: Jeff Maier
Who are you?
My name is Jeff Maier and I am the Global Sales Leader at Big Network. I have been in cloud infrastructure and cloud security sales leadership for over a decade at companies like Dyn (acquired by Oracle), Fastly (IPO, 2019), and Orca Security (> $2.5BN valuation). During my college years at Wesleyan University, I was captain of the baseball team and an All-NESCAC selection. While I enjoyed my time on the sports fields, I now find my time outside of work spent coordinating logistics with my wife to ensure our three boys (12, 10, 8) get to their respective games, practices, and rehearsals! I like to think that my years of experience in supporting GTM at early stage startups have prepared me well for the rigors of managing and balancing my childrens’ extracurricular schedules!
Why did you join Big Network?
There are many considerations when determining the right place to work. I have learned that some significant factors are the technology and market fit, but the most important aspect is the people. Big Network has great people who are committed to providing the best, fastest, and most efficient way to build critical private and secure cloud networks to support the robust modern connectivity demands across the internet landscape. Creating an experience where current and future customers can interact with Big Network in ways that positively impact their business is critical. I joined Big Network because we have the product, the people, and the unified commitment to support our customers with their network requirements.
What is your role and what is your primary responsibility?
As our Global Sales Leader, I am responsible for creating a buyers journey that enables our current and future customers to become more educated on our services, while providing a frictionless buying experience. There is no “one-size-fits-all” model, and Big Network wants to create fast “time to value” for our customers. From evaluation and purchasing to onboarding, our commitment is to make Big Network simple - that is what our customers deserve. Our team obsesses over how to create the perfect customer journey with Big Network from first engagement through the life of the partnership!
Where are you located? Where do you work each day?
I am located in southern NH, and primarily work out of our Nashua, NH, HQ. Living close to the HQ provides the opportunity to collaborate with my peers and colleagues on a regular basis, but I am also proud that our company has a flexible work policy that allows me to best balance work and family. Of course, it also helps that I can always be connected to Big Network through our great platform and products!
