a bit about you
A Solutions Engineer at Salesforce plays a crucial role in developing innovative solutions for complex technical and digital marketing requirements. This role collaborates with sales, services, product, business consulting, as well as prospective and existing customers. Meeting with C-level, Director-level, management-level and user-level customer contacts, the Solutions Engineer must be able to easily adapt to each type of conversation, whether it's strategic and high-level, or highly detailed and technical.
As part of our commercial business sales organisation, our Solution Engineering team covers a wide range of business sizes from SMB through to Mid Market and non Enterprise customers and prospects. The highly respected role of the Solution Engineer is seen as the voice of reason (and realism), and generally focuses on the following key areas:
Solution Development: Work closely with business stakeholders and technical resources to uncover technical challenges and goals relating to digital marketing, to then develop a solution and roadmap for the success of the customer.
Build: Showcase through software demonstrations and rapid prototyping how connected experiences come to life with the Salesforce Marketing Cloud. This includes the delivery of executive level software demonstrations, construction of future state customer journey strategies, and developing long term IT roadmaps.
Dance: Deliver an engaging and coherent presentation that connects complex technology to C-level audiences with persuasive story-telling. No dancing required, occasionally some jazz-hands help though.
Live on the Bleeding Edge: Stay up-to-date on product development and roadmap, industry trends, and industry news. Sounds easy, it's not. Minimum Requirements:
- Excellent English communication skills
- Experience Storytelling through different mediums (presentation, demonstration, white boarding and workshops)
- Pitching ideas, presenting to internal/external stakeholders
- Demonstrated passion for creating engaging customer experiences
- Pre-sales consulting experience (or similar client facing experience)
- Understanding of digital marketing best practices
