You want to be an integral part of a cross-functional team that prides itself on effectively and efficiently delivering to the needs of our customers. You are known for building smart, effective, efficient processes and templates to deliver projects. You are able to communicate, build relationships, and influence across all levels of the organization. You care deeply about driving business value at a customer. You are always operating from the perspective of “How will this positively impact our customers?” and “How can we help our customers achieve greater business value with our product?
You have director-level consulting experience and know your way around a business development process, too.
You will play a key role in supporting our customers’ objectives through accelerating the adoption and deployment of Platfora as we enable them to answer their most challenging Big Data questions. Your goal will be to increase user adoption, enhance and develop new use cases and increase Platfora usage across the enterprise.

Throughout project delivery, you will help surface impediments and collaborate cross-functionally to remove them. You are comfortable managing multiple projects that are at various stages of delivery.
