Ribbon is looking for a pre-sales engineer to support our channel partners and Service Provider sell-through account base.  The Systems Engineer (SE) will have several objectives all centered around accelerating adoption of Ribbon’s product portfolio with customers through our channel partners.   To this end, it is expected that the engineer will provide assistance on quoting and positioning products to Ribbon’s Channel Partners and the Partner Account Teams. At times it will also be expected that the engineer will work with the inside sales team to assist end customers who are engaged in a self-service trial through technical hurdles they encounter.   Part and parcel will be the continuous input and improvement of Ribbon’s guides and instructions to make all trial and channel onboarding processes as simple and painless as possible.

The SE will work with the Ribbon channel teams to identify revenue opportunities focused on North America and CALA.  The SE will coordinate and provide technical support to ensure that the best and most appropriate Ribbon solution is selected and make sure that any opportunity and necessary input is handed off to the appropriate partner, PAM, or Ribbon account team.  It is the responsibility of the SE to help develop and present product and applications presentations to potential customers. Successful candidate will provide high-level network architecture support and work with Professional Services to validate customer architecture.  The SE will coordinate and lead lab trials and a smooth transition into production directing a variety of resources.  It will be required that the SE interface with customers and Ribbon engineering as issues arise, monitor bug fixes and track feature development in code releases and ensure that the relationship between Ribbon and the assigned accounts is strong. The SE will also conduct on-going technical presentations to various organizations within the assigned accounts to uncover future opportunities and to strengthen the business relationship.
