As the Clearleap platform and technology stack expert, the Solutions Architect will support Sales by representing Engineering and Operations early in the sales process in strategic opportunities during customer site visits.  You will structure and drive conversations with client stakeholders to understand and solicit business needs and requirements for solution architecture, then engage with platform engineering, business stakeholders, and delivery teams to provide the blueprint for customer solutions and implementation.  As one of the main points of contact for our most strategic accounts, this is a highly visible role with significant ownership. This person will have considerable influence on the future of our product by acting as the voice for customer solutions.  The position requires vast knowledge and experience with principles, patterns, and best practices of providing a SaaS-based solution to top-tier media & entertainment companies.
