Data Replication Sales Engineer

Continuent, a leading provider of database clustering and replication software, has a position available for a highly experience sales engineer in the field of high-performance DBMS replication. As a sales engineer responsible you will handle pre- and post-sales engagements for Continuent's advanced Tungsten Replicator in deployments ranging from linking MySQL and Oracle RDBMS servers within a single data center to heterogeneous data loading into Hadoop or Vertica to geographically distributed multi-master systems.

The job responsibilities include:

  • Demo Tungsten Replicator to prospective customers as part of sales team
  • Assess user technical requirements, recommend deployment architectures, and prepare written statements of work for sales proposals
  • Assist customers in setting up, testing, and deploying replication in production environments
  • Work with engineering team to devise requirements for and try out new replication features
  • Make public presentations and generally evangelize use of Tungsten Replicator to enterprise customers

Successful candidates are hands-on, self-starters with great written and oral communication skills who work well in a distributed team environment. To get in the door, you'll need broad DBMS implementation skills including hands-on experience with Oracle and MySQL DBMS as well as data warehouses (especially Hadoop), knowledge of replication software like Oracle GoldenGate, MySQL native replication, or Sybase Rep Server, and demonstrated experience implementing complex, business-critical systems. Open source community exposure, enterprise software sales background, and experience with data center management are all plusses.

Continuent offers competitive salary and benefits. If you want to get in on the ground floor of a growing company in a challenging field, this job is for you. The company is fully distributed. For this position we prefer candidates in the Western US.
