Job Description

Your Mission 

As a Pre-Sales Cloud Engineer at SADA, you will work collaboratively with other architects and engineers to design, prototype, and inspire customers into Google Cloud services and properties. You will partner directly with sales teams, Google, and customers to qualify potential engagements, craft robust proposals, and deliver proposals plus contracts on which engineering teams can successfully execute.  You are hands-on, able to conduct experiments, and build functioning prototypes that prove out ideas and build confidence in the solutions you advocate. 

You will also direct early-stage opportunity/technical objectives calls and requests, as well as assist and potentially head client-facing technical discussions.

Pathway to Success 

#BeAChangeAgent: You think out in front of our delivery organization, meeting with the spectrum of internal stakeholders and both small and large customers that need our consultative services. You will have your finger on the pulse of their technical needs and take pride in helping them solve their real-world problems in Google Cloud. 

As you continue to execute successfully, we will build a customized development plan together that takes you through laddering into senior levels, solution architecture, or management growth tracks. 


Required Travel - Please expect about 30% travel to customer sites, conferences, and other related events. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, travel has (of course) been temporarily restricted.

Customer Facing - You will interact with customers on a regular basis, often daily, other times weekly/bi-weekly.  Common touch points occur when qualifying potential opportunities, throughout the sales motions, and periodically through the lifecycle of a customer account. You can expect to interact with a range of customer stakeholders, including engineers, technical project managers, and executives.

Training - Ongoing with first-week orientation at HQ followed by an extended onboarding and uplevelling training schedule.  Details of the timeline can be shared. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all onboarding will be temporarily conducted remotely.
