Sales Engineer (Palo Alto/Bay Area)
The Sales Engineer plays a pivotal role in the selling process. As a product-driven company, Catalytic leads and differentiates through actual product. In a buzz-filled industry, prospects often struggle separating actual capabilities from hyperbole and vaporware, service-providers or custom development masquerading as product, and how one product differs from another. The Sales Engineer helps the prospect to navigate through those product-oriented questions, bringing to life the power of the Catalytic platform in a way that is meaningful and relevant to the customer.
