SwiftStack needs your expertise to architect modernized workflows in the digital media industry! SwiftStacks cloud storage software presence in the media world is expanding quickly, and many of our clients are leveraging SwiftStacks functionality not only as an improvement over LTO for archive but also to simplify and accelerate their ingest, editing, transcoding, rendering, and distribution workflows. And with SwiftStacks multi-cloud features, advanced clients are making cloud-bursting, multi-cloud DR, and portable applications a reality! Take a look at swiftstack.com/media
for some examples.
As a Solutions Engineer, you will work closely with our clients, prospects, and media partners to both understand and influence their workflows. You will also collaborate with SwiftStack’s solutions architects, marketing, and sales teams to identify, validate, and communicate where SwiftStack provides unique value.
In addition to the focus on media, you will have an opportunity to apply expertise and related technologies to additional cloud-native and cloud-ready workflows and infrastructures in other markets.
Engage with clients and prospects as a media expert alongside our Solutions Architects team to provide architecture and workflow recommendations.
Work closely with media partners (e.g., vendors of asset managers, transcoders, NLEs) to help them modernize and optimize their applications to be cloud-storage-friendly.
Validate workflows in a SwiftStack lab, partner lab, or customer environment, and document configuration details for repeatability.
Work closely with SwiftStacks marketing team to produce how-to guides, demo videos, and basic sales training materials so that SwiftStack and partner sales teams can clearly articulate the benefits of these modernized workflows.
