Due to the tremendous success we have enjoyed, exciting opportunities exist within our Sales organization for technical sales Solution Engineers (SE). This position represents an opportunity to join our dynamic company and become an integral part of a talented team transforming the technology landscape.
The VMware Solution Engineer plays an important role in building and sustaining customer relationships, while driving the adoption of our solutions to achieve our revenue goals. The SE works very closely with sales to build long-term business relationships within assigned “named” accounts. The SE is a high-impact, highly visible role responsible for ensuring pervasive enterprise adoption of VMware software and solutions and closing enterprise transactions within assigned accounts in the region.
The SE works hand-in-hand with the VMware Field Sales teams to develop and deliver customer solutions.
The SE seeks to build deep, consultative relationships with their customer, effectively becoming a trusted advisor. The SE is ideally positioned to understand the customer's high-level business objectives and provide a point of view on how to align these to VMware solutions to satisfy the business and technical requirements.
The SE owns the Technical Customer Relationship by being comfortable presenting VMware’s value proposition, technologies, strategy, and product roadmaps to all levels at their customer including executives, technical management, and technical engineers.
The SE is responsible for creating a current and opinionated future state architecture which states how we will specifically achieve their business outcomes with our technology.
Everyone is responsible for pipeline growth. A great SE always seeks to identify new customer opportunity or demand for VMware solutions in their named accounts, as well as participate in demand generating events and activities. SEs track these opportunities in Salesforce.com.
Once an opportunity is identified, the SE plays a critical role in developing the opportunity and moving it towards closure. The primary activities the SE leads are to ensure that the proposed solution has been technically validated and that there are no technical barriers that would prevent the adoption of the solution. The SE works collaboratively with their Client Executive to develop business cases and value justifications to support world-class value propositions to your customer.
SEs constantly seek to expand their technical expertise and knowledge of VMware technologies, industry direction and trends, and competitor’s solutions via enablement and internal training offerings
As a group, SEs communicate and collaborate with their peers and colleagues on trends, product feedback, customer success, etc.
We are seeking an enthusiastic self-starter with an outgoing personality, comfortable working both independently and in a team setting.
