You’re technical and plugged into the world around you. You’re up on apps for your smartphone, you have a Skype account, your Bluetooth headset is paired to your phone. There are no viruses or spyware on your laptop. Your new TV came with apps and you got your Netflix account up and running in a few minutes. Your friends and family are always asking you questions about the internet, technology, gadgets; any good stock tips? You know what cloud computing is. You also know that there are not 1000 bytes in a KB.
While we’re at it, you know the chemical symbol for salt. You know the first prime number after 7. And while it took you about an hour, you did successfully set up your own WiFi router at home. You don’t have one computer, you have two. And both of them can print to the same printer at home.
Are you an IT person? Not really. Are you a software developer? No.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about you is that you can talk to anyone about technology without coming off like a jerk. How do you do that? You can have a very technical conversation with one person, then a very relaxed conversation with another about the very same subject. You’re an interpreter; hearing it one way and then being able to relay it another way.
If this describes you, then you may be just the type of person we’re looking for; someone who can have deep conversations about the details of our technology platform, then act as a resource to the sales team while they’re on important sales calls with big-name clients.
WDA has created an amazing mobile marketing platform called Impulse. The system is able to track users as they click on banner ads on their smartphone apps or browsers. It is a dream-come-true for marketers that need to run effective advertising campaigns on phones and tablets and while it’s easy to use, it has lots of nuances and complex features. Sophisticated retailers, auto companies, media companies are always trying to push the system to do more complex things with richer reports and deeper integrations to their own systems. The sales engineer’s role is listen to those requirements, match them up our feature set and engineering roadmap, and interpret all of that for the salespeople and managers involved in each opportunity.
