Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree (BA/BS) in Computer Science or equivalent four-year college technical degree.

  • Experience as a Sales Engineer in enterprise software is a +plus but technical experience is more valuable
  • Experienced selling enterprise SaaS software to IT is also a +plus
  • In-depth knowledge of REST APIs, microservices and popular web technologies is a must.
  • Understanding of client-side JavaScript, be comfortable writing scripts/code
  • Experience using version control system such as Git
  • Important:
  • Knowledge of NodeJS, ReactJS, VueJS or AngularJS
  • Experience with AWS Lambda or similar serverless coding
  • Understanding of CI/CD

Responsibilities

  • Provide overall pre-sales leadership and support for new and existing customers.  
  • Actively participate in client meetings and presentations with Account Executives to identify technical requirements.
  • Confirm that Contentstack meets a prospect's requirements and provide technical expertise to the overall sales qualification process.

  • Ownership of all pre-sales documentation and technical lead on client proposals and questionnaires, such as RFIs, RFPs, and Security Reviews. 
  • Communicate new and trending client needs and potential, emerging market opportunities to product and engineering teams and influence product roadmaps.
  • Listen to and make it a mission to thoroughly understand what a customer is trying to achieve. Never pre-suppose or assume an answer or pre-determine solutions.
  • Work with Account Executives, Engineering and Customer Success teams to ensure successful delivery of solutions to customers and prospects.  
  • Ideate, create and demonstrate relevant product use cases and meaningful client scenarios featuring Contentstack to prospects and customers. Basically, your demos are jaw-droppers.
  • Help customers design and identify POC’s and provide support throughout the evaluation process.
  • Travel, as needed, to prospects, partner sites, and industry events (post-COVID) - we are currently not traveling and working from home but will resume once its safe.
  • Maintain an in-depth level of technical and industry knowledge.
  • Work with the implementation partners throughout the sales process and assist with documentation to successfully scope and size client engagements that include a combination of Contentstack and partner technologies and services.

What Do We Offer?

Interesting Work | We hire curious trendspotters and brave trendsetters. This is NOT your boring, routine, cushy, rest-and-vest corporate job. This is the “challenge yourself” role where you learn something new every day, never stop growing, and have fun while you’re doing it. 

Tribe Vibe | We are more than colleagues, we are a tribe. We have a strict “no a\*\*hole policy” and enforce it diligently. This means we spend time together - with spontaneous office happy hours, organized outings, and community volunteer opportunities. We are a diverse and distributed team, but we like to stay connected.

Bragging Rights | We are dreamers and dream makers, hustlers, and honey badgers. Our efforts pay off and we work with the most prestigious brands, from big-name retailers to airlines, to professional sports teams. Your contribution will make an impact with many of the most recognizable names in almost every industry including Chase, The Miami HEAT, Cisco, Shell, Express, Riot Games, IcelandAir, Morningstar, and many more!

A Seat at the Table |  One Team One Dream is one of our values, and it shows. We don’t believe in artificial hierarchies. If you’re part of the tribe, you get a seat at the table. This includes unfiltered access to our C-Suite and regular updates about the business and its performance. Which, btw, is through the roof, so it’s a great time to be joining…
