DC and Cloud Solutions Architect:

The technology industry is currently going through some of its biggest transitions in history and the advent of Cloud Services, Software Defined, as a Service models, and programmatic access to resources are to name a few, resulting in the coming together of Business Applications and underlying infrastructure to deliver true business agility. 

At Cisco this is changing the way we interact with our customers. We are experiencing a different type of conversation as we engage new teams and departments, where once the conversation was focused on the physical infrastructure, we are now looking at how we can manipulate that infrastructure in a smarter more agile way. Invariably this is around automation and orchestration, where once the human operator performed and delivered the function the new model takes a programmatic (API) approach.

We are currently looking for an exceptional individual with an excellent track record as a Solutions Architect to work as part of an existing EMEAR wide pre-sales technology team to take our full-stack reference architectures to market, and internally be an active part of the specialist groups providing feedback from the field to shape future strategy.

Required skills:

  • Ability to deliver a solution strategy message to senior Customer Architects and up to CxO level
  • Deep technical understanding of servers, storage, applications, orchestrations, analytics/assurance, programmability and networking along with thinking outside the box and overcoming objections
  • Specific experience with Cisco Unified Computing System (x86), Unified Fabric, ACI, Storage MDS, Virtualization, Automation, Cloud, Containers, Converged Infrastructure, and Data Center architectures
  • Provide a consultative relationship with the customer and collaborate with Account teams and Business Entities to develop customer focused architectures driving industry-wide innovation
  • Lead the architectural design and associated Cisco technology strategy in alignment with key business drivers and market challenges for an individual customer.
  • Experience of the Financial Services sector, Banking and Financial application environment

Role Overview:

  • Senior customer focused technical and architectural sales professional with knowledge of customer-specific business drivers and environment
  • Demonstrate business relevancy to executive stakeholders
  • Strong understanding of the industry trends in the customer's vertical
  • Act as a trusted advisor in an account(s) and work with the various Global account teams and account leadership, demonstrate the business value of Cisco solutions, architectures, and services by aligning opportunities with a 3-5 year cross-architectural vision
