Contentful provides content infrastructure for digital teams to power websites, apps, and devices. Unlike a CMS, Contentful was built to integrate with the modern software stack. It offers a central hub for structured content, powerful management and delivery APIs, and a customizable web app that enables developers and content creators to ship their products faster. Companies including Spotify, Red Bull, WeWork, Lyft, and Urban Outfitters rely on Contentful to manage content as part of their modern web stack.
Contentful is growing rapidly, backed by $80 million in funding from VC firms including Benchmark and General Catalyst, and strategic investors including Sapphire Ventures (SAP) and Salesforce Ventures.
We’re a fun team of more than 350 people from 70 nations, with offices in Berlin and San Francisco. Join us!
ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Solution Engineering Manager, you are responsible for building and running a team of regionally distributed Solution Engineers throughout EMEA. You will grow the size and abilities of the team already in place and work in close collaboration with regional and global sales and partnership teams to align on go-to-market strategy, role focus and locations in order to support our continued growth.
Contentful’s Solution Engineers serve as trusted advisors for prospects, customers, and internal Sales and Product teams. They map customer needs to the value of the Contentful platform, and demonstrate its benefits to developers, product managers, marketing leaders, and C-level executives. They also advocate internally for keystone customer needs, and synthesize their in-market experiences to provide strategic insights to our Product and leadership teams.
At Contentful, our Solution Engineers are critical members of our sales team and own key components of the sales process including infrastructural/architectural discovery, collaborative solution design, and technical validation. In collaboration with our Solution Architects, Solution Engineers at Contentful also play a critical role after the conclusion of a sales contract by continuing to advise and assist the customers’ developers and implementation teams in conjunction with the efforts of our Services Success team.
Solution Engineers may travel up to 25% of the time and will have the opportunity to work with teams around the world, from visionary brands to innovative digital agencies.
“Variety is the spice of life” — and a celebrated component of our culture. At Contentful, we strive to create an inclusive environment that empowers our employees. We believe that our products and services benefit from our diverse backgrounds and experiences and are proud to be an equal opportunity employer: all qualified applicants are considered for positions regardless of race, ethnic origin, gender, age, religion or belief, marital status, gender identification, sexual orientation, or disability.
