About Snowflake
 
Snowflake is growing fast and we’re scaling our team to help enable and accelerate our growth. We’re passionate about our people, our customers, our values and our culture! We’re also looking for people with a growth mindset and the pragmatic insight to solve for today while building for the future. And as a Snowflake employee, you will be accountable for supporting and enabling diversity and belonging.
 
Snowflake started with a clear vision: make modern data warehousing effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Because traditional on-premises and cloud solutions struggle with this, Snowflake developed an innovative product with a new built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
 
We are looking for a world-class technical Solutions Architect to be part of a team that is responsible for the technical deployments of Snowflake at our customers. The SA will work directly with customers and with customer system integrators to deploy Snowflake. This person must be a self-starter and used to a fast-paced, fun, energetic environment and comfortable with dealing with ambiguity. This person must also have a passion to solve unique world-changing technology problems. The Solutions Architect will be responsible for providing the technical expertise to make Snowflake’s customers successful.
 
This person will have a broad range of skills and experience ranging from data architecture to ETL, security, performance analysis, analytics, etc. He/she will have the insight to make the connection between a customer’s specific business problems and Snowflake’s solution, the customer-facing skills to communicate that connection and vision to a wide variety of technical and executive audiences, and the technical skills to be able to not only build demos and execute proof-of-concepts but also to provide consultative assistance on architecture and implementation.
 
The person we’re looking for shares our passion about reinventing the data platform and thrives in the dynamic environment. That means having the flexibility and willingness to jump in and get done what needs to be done to make Snowflake and our customers successful. It means keeping up to date on the ever-evolving technologies for data and analytics in order to be an authoritative resource for Snowflake, System Integrators and customers. And it means working collaboratively with a broad range of people both inside and outside the company.

  • Work with System Integrator consultants at a deep technical level to successfully position and deploy Snowflake in customer environments
  • Provide guidance on how to resolve customer-specific technical challenges
  • Support other members of the Professional Services team develop their expertise
  • Collaborate with Product Management, Engineering, and Marketing to continuously improve Snowflake’s products and marketing.

  • Minimum 10 years of experience working with customers in a pre-sales or post-sales technical role
  • University degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics or related fields, or equivalent experience
  • Outstanding skills presenting to both technical and executive audiences, whether impromptu on a whiteboard or using presentations and demos
  • Understanding of complete data analytics stack and workflow, from ETL to data platform design to BI and analytics tools
  • Strong skills in databases, data warehouses, and data processing
  • Extensive hands-on expertise with SQL and SQL analytics
  • Experience and track record of success selling data and/or analytics software to enterprise customers; includes proven skills identifying key stakeholders, winning value propositions, and compelling events
  • Extensive knowledge of and experience with large-scale database technology (e.g. Netezza, Exadata, Teradata, Greenplum, etc.)
  • Software development experience with C/C++ or Java
  • Scripting experience with Python, Ruby, Perl, Bash.
  • Ability and flexibility to travel to work with customers on-site, up to 75% travel.
Bonus Points for Having
  • Experience with non-relational platforms and tools for large-scale data processing (e.g. Hadoop, HBase)
  • Familiarity and experience with common BI and data exploration tools (e.g. Microstrategy, Business Objects, Tableau)
  • Experience and understanding of large-scale infrastructure-as-a-service platforms (e.g. Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack, etc.)
  • Experience implementing ETL pipelines using custom and packaged tools
  • Experience using AWS services such as S3, Kinesis, Elastic MapReduce, Data pipeline
  • Experience selling enterprise SaaS software

"A New Challenge Every Single Day": Inside Snowflake's Growth Opportunities

An Insider's view of Snowflake

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is very inclusive and collaborative. I have a non-traditional background in city work and the service industry, and wasn't sure what to expect in the SaaS sales world. I was pleasantly surprised when my diversity was embraced and welcomed. I'm happy to be part of a supportive team that helps each other become 1% better every day.

Diana

Sales Development Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Contrary to the “eat or get eaten mentality” that cripples businesses, I share communication daily with members of the marketing team, educational and training teams, IT staff, and executive leadership. I work with these teams in a collaborative manner that enables everything from getting tasks done to generating new ideas for the org.

Christina

Sales Development Representative

How does the company support your career growth?

Snowflake has provided an incredible amount of growth opportunity early on in my career. Taking advantage of Snowflake's growth has propelled me personally and professionally. I've been challenged more than I expected, and those challenges have forced me to step up. Being on this team at this time is special and a massive opportunity.

Abby

Corporate Account Executive

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The Denver SDR team (aka The Pioneers) are having a significant impact on the trajectory of our business. Each member of the team is responsible for cracking into some of the most data driven organizations on the planet. We embrace risks and see failure as a chance to improve. And we know we won't be successful without consistent collaboration.

Quinn

Manager, Sales Development

What makes someone successful on your team?

I truly believe that the thing that makes us successful is our core values: Put Customers First, Integrity Always, Think Big, Be Excellent, Get It Done, Own It. I've been at companies where the core values are just words. That is not the case at Snowflake. These words are the foundation of what makes each of us successful as individuals.
