EMEA Senior Solutions Engineer (London based)


We are looking for an experienced Pre-sales Senior Solutions Engineer to join our growing EMEA team! 


About your Team:

The Presales team plays a crucial role in the sales process. Together with the sales and engineering teams, we work closely with potential customers. Our goal is to determine the functional and technical requirements to meet prospect’s goals and position the value of MANTA in their environment. Presales are the leaders in three major elements of the sales effort: discovery, demonstration and proof of concept.  During the discovery, the presales engineer works to uncover the details of the prospect’s business objectives, as well as identifying the technology in use at their company and in relation to the objectives.  In the presentation, the presales engineer provides a compelling demonstration of MANTA and shows how it can be utilized to provide the value the prospect is seeking. 

The Presales Engineer has a key role in setting the customer’s expectations correctly to maintain our high customer satisfaction levels.  The proof of concept is where the Presales Engineer leverages their strong technical talent to understand the unique techniques used by the customer and execute MANTA’s automation to produce world-class lineage representing their data flows. This process occasionally involves preprocessing of the customer’s scripts to enable MANTA’s analysis of the code and/or the use of Open MANTA to facilitate user configured lineage or to augment the lineage.

What you'll do: 

  • Work with sales representatives during the sales process, performing technical and product demonstrations (primarily remote, occasionally in-person);
  • Prove solution value during trials and POCs by guiding the prospect through the process of installation, configuration and troubleshooting of potential issues;
  • Find creative solutions for integration with technologies that are not OOTB supported;
  • Contribute to MANTA’s sales and customer success process improvement;
  • Actively contributing to the product roadmap: collecting feedback, improvements and feature requests from customers and prospects, and passing those to the product and the development team;
  • Document best practices and advanced configurations in KB and How-To articles;

What you should have: 

  • Customer facing experience;
  • Presales experience in an IT product company;
  • Experience in data management to relate to customer's challenges;
  • Familiarity with data management concepts;
  • Strong data-related technical understating of typical customer's environment - APIs, Databases, ETL and Reporting tools;
  • Troubleshooting and log investigation;
  • Troubleshooting integration issues across multiple applications/technologies;
  • Proactive approach to problem solving;
  • Ability to quickly orient yourself in new environments;
  • Ability to conceptualize and apply learned experience in other scenarios;
  • Open to learn and to ask for help;
  • Organized;
  • Collaborative;
  • Team-player;
  • Great customer facing experience;
  • Experience in doing presentations;
  • Creativity (to find workarounds, if needed);
  • Positive can-do approach.

What you’ll get: 

  • Health & Life insurance;
  • Stock options;
  • Self-Care days - 3 days per year;
  • Referral bonus;
  • Superior training and professional development;
  • Regular team building activities;
  • Strong ties to leadership to progress your career sooner rather than later;
  • Gain experience working with Fortune 500 companies to solve complex data management challenges;
