Pre-Sales Storage Engineer (Unicorn)
Wanted brilliant pre-sales engineer to join our team.
Pre-sales engineering is a huge part of driving customer success. It’s hard. One reason is because it’s extremely difficult to build trust with the sales team. Sales is paid on sales, and when they bring people on their sales calls they have to have absolute confidence that the person can add value to their customers. Sales and customer success is at risk. You get this. This does not scare you.
You might not be the right fit.
Pre-sales is a hard position to recruit for, but not impossible. What makes it hard is that in our world the ideal person has the technical chops to do remediation and technical systems analysis as well. We have the largest team in the world dedicated to the resale of used data storage equipment and third party support (Dell-EMC, NetApp, Cisco, HP, etc). While VARs and OEMs only have to focus on the newest technology, we have to know how to troubleshoot and size technology for 3-7 generations of product - all over the phone.
Imagine analyzing SPcollects, Autosupport or SysConfig files to help size a solution for a customer. Think EMC VNX, NetApp, Data Domain, Isilon, Networking, Brocade, VMware, Backup applications - the datacenter stack.
Maybe you work for an end user and have top notch communication skills and are looking for your chance to get into pre-sales. Maybe you work at an OEM or VAR and are looking for the right environment to call home. I have faith there is someone out there that would be excited and excel in this role.
To succeed, you’ll need to have the potential to quickly become great at the following things
Compensation and benefits
Salary is dependent on experience. We firmly believe that one great mind is better than one hundred mediocre ones, so we’re happy to pay the best rates for the best people.
Our office feels like California, is located off of Howell Mill Rd in Atlanta, GA. Bill Withers is playing on the Sonos in in the background. Our purpose is to love and serve our customer, and we helps IT organizations save time and money, buying, selling and supporting server, storage and networking hardware. We are 37 teammates strong who want you here.
