What you do
As a Pre-Sales Architect (Infura, Developers Tools & Infrastructure), you support product sale efforts by advising customers on ways to integrate Infura and other developer products with their tech stack.
Your role is part of Product Sales. While the role is not a sales quota-carrying role currently, the acquisition and retention of Infura customers are some of its main OKRs (objectives & key results).
Day-to-day, you participate in discovery and sales calls with fintech companies, blockchain application developers, DeFi protocols and NFT platforms in order to articulate the benefits of the Infura product suite and identify ways to integrate these products into the customers’ workflows.
Once a customer need has been identified, you drive the technical sales cycle with a high degree of autonomy, organizing technical workshops with customer stakeholders, delivering technical architectures and diagrams, estimating the time and cost of integration steps, and delivering customer-ready technical proposals summarizing your findings and recommendations. You work closely with the Infura product team in order to understand how the current features and API endpoints, and product roadmap, may be relevant to the customer’s needs.
The Infura product suite includes Infura Ethereum, Infura Transactions, Eth2, IPFS, Filecoin, Polygon, Arbitrum, Optimism.
This is a technical role – meaning that you are expected to be able to dive into the technical details of client requirements and projects. You continuously learn about Ethereum technology, DeFi protocols and ConsenSys product features, in order to be regarded as a world-class expert on decentralized application infrastructure on public blockchain networks.
The role is global in scope (Americas, EMEA, APAC). It mostly involves remote work, but occasional travel up to 20% of the time to attend customer meetings or conferences may be involved as the world reopens.
