Solutions Engineer Job Description

As a Solutions Engineer, technical knowledge and communication are both essential skills. It is the responsibility of the Solutions Engineer to understand what the customer needs to accomplish, then to find a solution through use of the company's products or services. To do this effectively, Solutions Engineers need to be creative thinkers and problem solvers with excellent understanding of the technical capabilities of what their company offers.

Because the position requires pre-sales activities involving heavy customer interactions, communication skills are necessary. An effective Solutions Engineer must be able to communicate about their proposed solution to people with varying levels of technical knowledge and product experience. As part of the pre-sales team, Solutions Engineers are responsible for speaking on behalf of the customer's needs and making sure that a company's products or services will be able to solve the problems stated and help the customer meet their goals.
