What’s the Solutions Engineer role?

The Solutions Engineering (SE) team at LeanDNA is a prospect & customer-facing group of strategic, technical, and product gurus who understand the LeanDNA platform, our manufacturing customers’ challenges and systems landscape, and are passionate about applying LeanDNA to drive meaningful business results. The LeanDNA SE team partners with both our internal teams and our customers to understand requirements, communicate capabilities, respond to questions, and run product demonstrations on sales opportunities. The SEs work closely with our sales & marketing teams, our customers, as well as our product, design, and engineering teams to define and communicate how LeanDNA can help customers achieve their inventory goals and overall business objectives. The SEs are responsible for understanding a prospect or customer’s in-depth business issues, processes, and systems to help determine the best way they can leverage the LeanDNA platform.

The Sales team relies on the SEs to understand the requirements of their customers and how LeanDNA can be used to address their needs. Sales also relies on SEs to best position the product in discussions and to understand the customer’s technical landscape and how LeanDNA would fit into their technology stack.

SEs are a strategic resource able to wear many hats who are instrumental in helping our internal Sales, Product and Marketing teams, as well as guiding our prospects through the technical sales journey. Whether it’s a discussion about a specific prospect’s challenges, discussing a new product feature, helping with the solution support of new or existing customers, or ensuring that sales opportunities are moving forward, the SE team is central to the success and continued growth of LeanDNA.
