At Paxos, we are creating the infrastructure for a new, open financial system - one that anyone can access & participate in, & that operates efficiently. There are billions of people in the world who are unbanked or underbanked, & trillions of dollars that are locked up because of the inefficiencies of the legacy system. We envision a new system that allows any asset to move instantaneously, anywhere in the world - to unlock the potential of assets & people everywhere. Our customers include some of the biggest enterprises in the world like PayPal, Credit-Suisse & Societe Generale, & together we are upgrading the global financial system using modern blockchain & crypto technology.

We are looking for a Solutions Engineer to join our rapidly growing FinTech company.  The Solutions Engineer will support business development teams by articulating Paxos product positioning to both business & technical audiences as well as architecting the integration design. This is a multi-dimensional role that not only educates customers on the value of Paxos solutions  but also advocates for customer interests to relevant internal teams & removes technical & business related obstacles in front of a sale.

What you will do:

  • Understand & qualify customer goals & effectively communicate Paxos ability to achieve them.
  • Create presentations, solutions designs, project plans, or other collateral to support the sales process.
  • Contribute to effective technical demonstrations throughout the sales process.
  • Conduct deep-dive hands-on education/training sessions to transfer knowledge to customers considering or already using the Paxos platform.
  • Gain & maintain a deep understanding of the customers' architectural solutions/environment.
  • Assist in Sales stages including opportunity qualification, demonstrations, RFP responses, & business justification in a technical pre-sales capacity.
  • Establish credibility & build deep relationships with senior technical individuals within customer organizations to enable them to be Paxos advocates.
  • Share customer interests, needs, & product feedback to internal Paxos Product & Engineering teams.
  • Maintain awareness of internal roadmap & new product features to evangelize with customers.
  • Assist in the synthesis of customer requirements into scoping & customization requests for internal teams.
  • Continuously learn & update skills & keep aware of industry trends in the cryptocurrency & blockchain technology space.

What you need to have: 

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Business Management, Finance or Consulting; or an equivalent combination of education & experience.
  • 3-5 years of experience in client-facing solutions engineering, technical sales, or consulting roles, preferably in a SaaS organization.
  • Strong verbal & written communication skills.
  • Experience with business process requirements gathering & analysis, project management, & familiarity with system design.
  • Ability to engage & influence technical & non-technical audiences, from implementers to mid-level managers.
  • Industry knowledge preferred or the ability to quickly develop a deep knowledge base in the crypto & blockchain space.
  • Strong relationship building skills.
  • Interest in both sales & technology functions.
  • Able to prioritize & multitask while staying organized with competing priorities.

Other than these qualifications, we're hoping to bring someone on board who loves what they do & can't wait to join an amazing team.
