Solutions Architect

    • Flexible / Remote

In your world, every call with a potential client is an opportunity to help someone tackle a set of problems. Sometimes you can solve those problems, and sometimes you can't. Either way, you get joy out of those conversations. 

Do you love grabbing a whiteboard and collaborating with a client to find the right solutions? Do you keep a pulse on new technology and security solutions hitting the market? If so, Expel’s Solutions Architect role may be of interest to you.

At Expel we've got our eye on the long game. Our clients need to be able to trust us, and that begins with understanding where they currently are, where they want to be, and connecting them to solutions that will help them (even if it’s not Expel!). We do what we say, and they will love what we do. We don't use jargon, replay tired phrases or provide fuzzy answers. We want our clients to love our product and feel good about how we treat them during every interaction.

As a Solutions Architect at Expel, you’re responsible for understanding the needs of prospects, setting expectations around what we can and can’t do, then creating a strategy for the delivery teams to ensure the prospects success. And the fun doesn’t stop there, you’ll get your hands dirty on the delivery side as well. Solution Architects own Proof of Concepts (PoC), meaning you’ll be responsible for scoping PoCs, and working with various Delivery teams to ensure we’re showing prospects what they need to see in order to make a buying decision.

Success is ensuring that Expel can make space for the client to do what they love about security. You do this by aligning prospects and Expel on the right solution. Sometimes, that means showing them we can do what we say we do. Other times, that means leading them to a new vision.

You dig it either way.
