Adzerk enables our customers to build innovative and relevant advertising and content experiences quickly and easily. The Adzerk Sales Engineer is a vital member of our sales team that works to delight prospective customers and their integrating engineers. They are effective communicators who can pivot with ease — from discussing targeting options and GDPR with a CEO, to the latest javascript framework or the latency involved with making requests from Google Cloud to AWS with a developer. They should be comfortable sketching out ad request / API workflows on a whiteboard, and delivering a product demo to a crowded room.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have prior experience working with REST APIs and a highly technical product.
  • Be high-energy, passionate and creative.
  • Be an exceptional communicator and presenter, comfortable speaking in groups, being recorded and speaking with both technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Research, Test, Ask. A successful solutions architect will always search for a solution, try it, and finally ask for help. An independent problem solver will find the most success.

The exceptional candidate will:

  • Have previous coding experience in some form. While you won’t need to write any code of your own, you should be able to write JSON and understand basic code.
  • Have experience working with tools like Postman, Datadog and Papertrail.
  • Have previous experience working in adtech.
  • Have previous experience working remotely.

You will: 

  • Become an expert in Adzerk, our APIs, and what they can do.
  • Work closely with Adzerk’s Sales team to develop and deliver technical demonstrations and answer technical questions during the sales process.
  • Troubleshoot customer problems while they are building, and keep sales execs and sales leadership up to date on development progress.
  • Assist in the completion of customer RFPs and security/infrastructure questionnaires.
  • Own and drive relationships with technical audiences of all kinds, from integrating engineers to CTOs, understanding business objectives and explaining solutions.
  • Capture feedback for product and engineering, and advocate internally on prospect and customer’s behalf.
