About the Customer Success & Solutions Engineering Team

Mixpanel’s Customer Success & Solutions Engineering teams are analytics consultants who embed themselves within our enterprise customer teams to drive our customer’s business outcomes. We work with prospects and customers throughout the customer journey to understand what drives value and serve as the technical counterpart to our Sales organization to deliver on that value. You will partner closely with Account Executives, Account Managers, Product, Engineering, and Support to successfully roll out self-serve analytics within our customer’s organizations, help the customer manage change, execute on technical projects and services that delight our customers and ultimately drive ROI on the customer’s Mixpanel investment.

About the Role

As a Solutions Engineer you are critical in presenting the value of Mixpanel’s capabilities to a broad set of prospects. As we continue to grow our Sales organization, you’ll will be collaborating with Account Executives as a trusted advisor to customers working to tie Mixpanel’s solutions to their business needs. Our SEs need to be inquisitive, nimble, able to clearly articulate the technical benefits and requirements of Mixpanel to developers and product managers, and communicate the value of our product to high-level executives.

In the first month, you will become a Mixpanel expert on both features and functionality as well as implementation.  You will be given the opportunity to shadow customer calls and demos with current Sales Engineers and Account Executives while learning how to articulate our value proposition.

Within the first three months, you will be directly involved in deal cycles with Account Executives.
