Commuter traffic, it’s probably the only thing I would change about my job, if I could. Luckily for you, this won’t be an issue.

Picture yourself enjoying the flexibility of working from the comfort of your own home and only travel as and when needed… all expenses paid, of course.

Selling analytics solutions which are far more advanced and customisable than competitors, makes your life easier as a Sales Engineer, agree?

Doesn’t it also make your job more enjoyable, selling a solution which actually provides value to a client, giving them insights they otherwise wouldn’t have known.

Being a 10 times Gartner Magic Quadrant leader suggests that they’re getting something right, and their customers are seeing the value, so selling it shouldn’t be an issue.

At this stage in your career, you will certainly know a thing or two about Analytics Software, but that doesn’t mean the learning stops here.

The hiring manager told me that one of the biggest selling points of the team is their collaborative culture where people can learn and develop - 7 years average tenure tells me they have a happy team and the very reason for this vacancy is due to internal promotions.

Working with salespeople, should be something that you enjoy and I want to emphasise the word “WITH” and not “FOR”, which I often hear can be the case; PreSales feeling subservient to Account Executives.

You’ll get an opportunity to meet with the sales team to make sure you feel there is a fit. And “Equal Business Stature” was something the Mike emphasized as being their mantra.

In a recent survey, the number one reason for leaving a role was due to lack of opportunity to use your skills. Picture yourself walking into HSBC with a board of directors, and you hold the answers to their data problems. This should be something that gives you a real buzz, so you need to know a thing or two about analytics.

Being able to hold your own with a whole host of technical questions relating to cloud, web technologies and analytics is essential. How you then communicate this in a commercial way is what will really set you apart from the rest.
