What you will do

  • Drive impact, close deals, generate mission wins, and get user adoption by:
    • Building demos to engage executives and gain access;
    • Engaging users and subject matter experts to build new capabilities in production with Forward Deployed Engineers;
    • Acting as a first user to generate wins and gain insights into customer actions; and
    • Communicating high quality signal to inform core product vision.
  • Solve Real Problems: We search for the highest impact problems we can find by spending a lot of time with our customers to understand their true nature, we come up with new ways, and we don’t quit until we’ve reached impact.
  • Growth: The problems we work on are hard. No one has yet solved them. We are constantly learning and trying - and that includes learning about ourselves. We are a group who loves to grow - even if it requires hard work to do so.

About You

  • Ability to extract meaningful insights from data (in Excel, code, or anywhere) and use UI mock/prototyping tools.
  • Understanding of how technical decisions impact the user of what you’re building.
  • Skill and comfort working in a rapidly changing environment: decide when the objective needs to shift, rapidly pivot toward valuable progress.
  • Demonstrated ability to continuously learn, work independently abroad, and make decisions with minimal supervision. Willingness and interest to travel as needed to get very close to the difficult and complex problems we are solving.
