This SE organization comprises go-to technical experts who are instrumental in helping our customers architect, scope and realize their cloud security transformation.

You will work closely with the District Sales Manager for Prisma Cloud and, along with your team, build relationships with your customers with the goal of helping them securely deploy applications, containerized and serverless workloads securely across any of the major Public Cloud Service Providers and in some instances their own Private Cloud infrastructure. Your guidance, expertise, and mentorship of your team of SEs will keep them ahead of the latest cyberthreats and staying on the leading edge of prevention and vulnerability detection.

We are looking for a leader to develop our pre-sales teams, providing training and technical support as a product expert. Additionally you will provide feedback to the product management team on new feature requests and product improvements based on what you learn from your customer base. Your team, in partnership with the technical sales managers, will displace competitor technologies, and build market share within your targeted list, and most importantly, help your client sleep at night as they use our products to secure their public cloud infrastructure and workloads.

  • Provide effective technical leadership in customer interactions to include sharing security trends and standard methodologies employed by other customers to actively be part of the selling process

  • Build and maintain relationships with key customers to solidify reference accounts and to assist the account teams with defining plans to drive more business

  • Present to customers as our expert in your area at all levels in the customer hierarchy from engineer to CISO

  • Steer conversations about industry trends and emerging changes on the security landscape that every customer needs to plan for

  • Discuss competitor products in the marketplace and positions ours as the best alternative
