Your responsibilities

As a Solution Engineer, you are responsible for defining and designing the architecture for new client initiatives. You lead workshops with clients, and work closely with colleagues from Professional Services and beyond to ensure client satisfaction with proposed solutions. You take user experience, system performance, the product itself, and many other aspects into consideration when identifying the best technical solution to the set of complex requirements you are presented with. You have a solid engineering background, as well as the capacity to adapt swiftly to different business contexts. You are able to rapidly pick up clients’ vocabulary, and quickly understand their goals.

In this role you will become an expert, helping clients and fellow developers solve intricate and challenging technical matters. As part of your job, you provide coaching and run troubleshooting sessions with clients and colleagues when a more in-depth understanding of the product is required. These sessions will often result in you needing to build prototypes or client-specific custom modules: the ability to execute hands-on assignments is therefore a must.

You will create collaterals and best practice guidelines based on your day-to-day experience. You will feed the department feature requests, bug reports, and ideas to help us improve the product, and steer the roadmap even closer to market needs.

  • You possess strong verbal and written communication skills and do not shy away from customer interaction. You can present complex solutions within a customer-facing environment, using a communication style appropriate to the audience.
  • You are organized, able to handle multiple assignments efficiently, and not fazed by rapid context-switching
  • You like working on short-term assignments at short notice, rather than being involved in the same initiative for a longer timeframe
  • You are ready and willing to support colleagues and clients in removing any roadblocks they are experiencing
