  • Summer Sales Engineering Meetup Event at OneLogin

    How Sales Engineers can sell to CISO's ----------------------------------------- Justin Calmus, Chief Security Officer at OneLogin (previously at HackerOne, Salesforce, Zenefits & Linkedin). Justin will discuss how to sell to CISO's since SE's of all backgrounds in software always need to deal with security blockers during deal cycles. Meet us all at OneLogin's office where beer/wine and food will be provided as well. This will be a great happy hour event where fellow SE's can learn about how important security is when selling to companies in the pre-sales process. Feel free to arrive around 6pm. We look forward to seeing everyone! -The Organizing Team
