Manager, Field Engineering

Calgary, Canada

Req ID: FEQ425R92

Databricks is leading the next paradigm shift in solving problems with data and is looking for a Field Engineering Manager to lead our Western Canada Team. You will lead a team of Solution Architects and Solution Engineers in the Enterprise GTM vertical. You will lead and promote a dynamic team focusing on enterprise software, big data/analytics, data engineering, and data science. Leading the technical split-focused team (70% pre-sales, 30% hands-on solutions development), you will partner with Sales and your technical peers to increase revenue and help customers become wildly successful. You'll scale and maintain an outstanding Field Engineering team that is efficient in its operations to help accelerate Databricks' growth in the market.

The impact you will have:

  • You will grow a team of Solutions Architects for a company in high-growth mode.
  • You will maintain a hiring pipeline for ongoing hiring needs throughout the year.
  • Crush your region's sales target - by making sure your SA team knows how to build a comprehensive technical point of view to establish the lakehouse architecture across a wide array of business units, identify valuable business-impacting use cases and validate consumption demand, and establish themselves as trusted advisors by building strong relationships with technical partners.
  • Make your customers in your region extremely successful by driving priorities with sales and alignment with the other databricks technical functions (Specialist, PS and CS)
  • Establish relationships across the business to make your customers and team successful.

What we look for:

  • 5+ years of experience in the data space with a technical product (i.e. data warehousing, big data, or machine learning).
  • Experience leading technical pre-sales teams - hiring, onboarding, and supporting pre-sales professionals, building a territory; up-selling strategic accounts; and exceeding annual quotas.
  • Lead a team through best practices for technical account strategy, architecture discussions, and solution advocacy in a customer environment.
  • Experience hiring candidates, ramping them up to be successful, and promoting them into larger roles.
  • Create positive morale for the team, establish work-life balance and help foster a healthy and productive working relationship within the team and between Field Engineering, Sales, and other important internal partners.
  • Experience working with other teams such as Sales, Product Management, Industry Got to Market and Customer Success.
  • Experience with driving executive alignment in accounts that guides strategic data infrastructure decisions and establish partnerships through adoptions and growth.
