Check out more info on our homepage: http://www.bigleaf.net Our service is growing quickly and we’re looking for a Sales Engineer to join our team. Bigleaf is a well-funded fast-growing startup, so your day-to-day tasks will vary quite a bit and morph over time, but here’s an overview:

Position Summary
  • Customer and Partner Calls: You will be a key technical resource for our sales team. You’ll typically be on several calls each day, working to qualify customer need and determine if Bigleaf is a fit in the customer environment. You’ll then clearly communicate which of the customer needs that Bigleaf can address, how implementation will go, and address any technical objections or areas of concern. You’ll also work to educate partners on Bigleaf, where we fit best, and how the technology works.
  • Technical Documentation: As part of pre-sales engineering work, and post-sales implementation hand-off to our provisioning team, you’ll create network diagrams and other documents for customers, partners, and internal team members. These documents will provide clear visual guides, appropriate for the technical depth of the audience, of Bigleaf implementations, technology, and our network. You’ll also work in concert with our provisioning team for larger projects, ensuring customer expectations that were set during the sales process are met or exceeded during implementation.

  • Network Troubleshooting and Technical Support: We believe it’s crucial to provide excellent service to our customers, eliminating the typical finger-pointing that happens in IT, through skillful troubleshooting. In this role you’ll occasionally help customers (usually working with their IT consultants or other skilled people) to investigate and resolve issues such as ISP/carrier circuit problems, VoIP call drops, slow downloads, and unexpected firewall behavior. You’ll use tools such as tcpdump, Wireshark, MTR, and iPerf.
 
Required Qualifications
  • A passion for humbly serving customers and partners
  • Integrity
  • A thoughtful, consultative communication style
  • At least 2 years of experience in a network sales engineering role

  • Excellent understanding of networking fundamentals
  • Strong experience with network edge device deployments, such as firewalls and routers
  • Self-starter approach to identifying and accomplishing goals
  • Natural ability to incrementally troubleshoot technical problems
  • Strong understanding of how specific network issues affect application performance (e.g. how does packet loss affect TCP throughput? Or what are the effects of jitter on VoIP?)
  • Ability and willingness to travel up to several times per month (including occasional international travel).
