Technical Solutions Consultant

Hearsay Systems is looking for a talented programmer to join our pre-sales team as a Technical Solutions Consultant!

In this role, you’ll be challenged on both technical and functional aspects of the deal lifecycle from developing new demo environment enhancements to presenting in front of a technical audience.  You'll enable the go-to-market team to navigate deep product and technical conversations winningly and easily; consult, develop, and present custom solution presentations mapped to strategic customer challenges; and function as a key liaison between go-to-market, product, and product marketing on our platform and services.

As part of this hybrid role, you will spend part of your time coding new features in our demo environment and then presenting these features to our customers and prospects.
