As the technology sector continues to expand, so does the need for technologically literate salespeople, often called sales engineers. There are sales engineers on staff at all of the major technology companies that sell enterprise-ready software: those include Slack, Salesforce, VMWare, SAP, Adobe, MuleSoft, Twillo, Oracle, Microsoft, and many others. Because of this, there are now many bootcamps and courses for people who are interested in kickstarting a career in technology sales by learning the necessary technological and sales-related skills.

Sales engineers are among the highest-paid salespeople, earning a median annual wage of $101,000, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). This wage is substantially higher than average for salespeople across all industries ($41,000). The BLS also projects 6 percent job growth in this area between 2018 and 2028, which is on par with the expected 5 percent growth across all occupations over the same period.

Several immersive bootcamps and a number courses are available for people interested in technology sales. Below is a list of bootcamps, with more specific information about the material they cover and to what kind of students each course caters to. SwitchUp also aggregates alumni reviews for each bootcamp.
