Sr. Solutions Consultant (R2561 )
MentorMate is seeking a Senior Solutions Consultant. This role is responsible for supporting business development activities, especially with larger accounts that we believe have significant long term prospects for MentorMate. While they likely will be involved in some billable capacity with each prospect with which they engage sometime during their lifecycle, this is not the primary goal or measure of success for this role. Instead, each Senior Solutions Consultant has a portfolio of clients at different stages of maturity and their success is measured by setting and meeting revenue growth objectives within that portfolio of clients.
Some of these clients may be larger prospects that need to gain confidence in our overall capabilities by meeting and working with consultants that can gain their trust and who demonstrate that they know how to be successful in shipping software products using blended, distributed teams. In this scenario, the consultant may need to help propose the work, determine the overall technology stacks in play and the best team structure to complement the client’s existing personnel, and then assure a smooth kickoff, ramp up, and transition to program/project management.
In other situations, these clients may have mature project efforts underway but need help sustaining their product roadmap and translating it into actionable work.
