You will work with sales on delivering demos, building proofs of concepts and prototypes with prospects, and in answering technical questions, assisting in closing deals. You will use your knowledge gathered through sales motions and work with our Customer Success team to determine ways to best drive adoption and successful implementations of computer vision within their products. You will also contribute to the post-sales process (Customer Engineering) in an engineering capacity to ensure our customers are successful throughout their journey with Roboflow. We don’t just stop at signature and onboarding. We want our customers to be life long partners with Roboflow and ensure they are receiving the ROI they envisioned when they first signed on. If you think, “I’m an engineer that loves sharing my work with others,” you’d be in great company in this role.
