Looking to leverage your client facing, technical sales skills?

Do you thrive in an environment where you are empowered and incentivized?

About Datavail:
Datavail is a mature managed service business with data at our core.

Through database operations, data management, storage, integration & analytics, and application modernization, development & management we help clients mature, migrate and manage complex cloud and on-prem solutions.

We are a company of over 900 professionals with a proven onshore/offshore shared services delivery model across all our technical practices, along with large-scale project execution capability.

We help clients build and manage data and applications via a word-class tech-enabled delivery platform and software solutions across all leading technologies.
Datavail has grown rapidly (9x our size in the last 6 years).

Executing on both organic and acquisition-based growth has resulted in an organization poised for tremendous expansion of our market footprint.

While we occasionally help clients with targeted staffing, we are not a “body shop”.

Our ability to execute across multiple practices has been honed since our founding in 2008.

And we are coming off the strongest year in company history!
Solution architecture is at the core of our growth strategy.

Solution Architects provide the organizational “glue” between our practice areas and our world-class sales and marketing organization.

In this role you will work 100% in the sales cycle and act as the quarterback of solutions.

You will partner with sales to drive new business while also partnering with our delivery/practice areas to provide solution proposals to solve our client’s needs while ensuring we can deliver high quality within or capabilities.

Job Description:
Opportunity
Your opportunity is to play a fundamental role in our expansion, and growth will come to those with a desire to lead, work hard, and collaborate in a low ego, high performance environment.

We are looking to add an experienced Solution Architect responsible for conceptualizing and architecting end to end solutions in areas such as: cloud modernization, data analytics and integration, data management, database migration, and database management.
Reporting to the Vice President of Solution Development, you will proactively engage with all internal teams to ensure timely delivery of appropriate solutions to customers and drive deal closure.

You will be able to collaborate with your peers to continually improve our standards and processes for solution development.

Your primary focus area will be on Analytics, Data Integration, and Database opportunities; however, you may also be asked to work with other service offerings that align with your expertise and skillsets.

There is also opportunity to expand your skillset, if you choose, into other Datavail core competencies.

Responsibility Areas
The solution architect will leverage existing collateral and collaborate with operations, sales, project management, and service delivery management to develop innovative approaches and execute in these responsibility areas.

Opportunity qualification
– You will be involved in numerous late-stage qualification calls in conjunction with the sales and marketing teams.

Engagement scoping
– Solution Architects lead the scoping effort for qualified engagements utilizing both Practice SMEs and other Solution Architects as needed.

This is a vital role which also typically involves intense communication and credibility building with clients.

Solution development
– Once a client’s business needs are understood, the Solution Architect leads the development of a solution set.

Our goal is always to “start with why”.

At Datavail we are not order takers or need fillers, we strive to be want-creators and solution providers.

Clients seek our expertise so that they can concentrate on their core business.

We need to provide the right solution not just fulfil an order.

Engagement pricing
– Whether a long-term managed service engagement, a consultative short-term project, or a multiyear implementation, Solution Architects spearhead the pricing process as a logical extension of solution development and scoping.

Sales support and closing
– In the complex world of IT outsourcing, no individual can close a deal alone.

A team typically comprised of sales, solution architecture, practice SMEs, and often delivery management is required to earn a client’s trust and their business.

Your role will be to prepare presentations, collaborate on messaging, build credibility, and participate in team presentations
– ultimately helping close engagements by reinforcing confidence in the Datavail delivery model, experience, and expertise.

Sales to Delivery handoff
– The internal kick-off is a critical function.

In conjunction with the rest of the sales team it is essential that knowledge gathered during the sales cycle and client expectations beyond just what may have been stated in a SOW is communicated thoroughly and clearly to the delivery team.

How Datavail starts a project or managed service engagement speaks volumes to our professionalism and skill of the solution architect.
