At Celonis, I’ve been given an extraordinary opportunity to have authority over large proof of value projects, working with executives from Fortune 500 companies. The trust and support I have from my team has accelerated my growth in both business acumen and process knowledge.
Use LinkedIn! Every job opportunity I’ve had has been through a connection on LinkedIn or university jobs platform. Find a commonality to someone who works at the company you’re interested in, and reach out to them. LinkedIn is a huge resource—with tools for learning as well as easy ways to find people who went to your school or grew up in your hometown.
Our Solution Engineering role entails a unique combination of process knowledge, consulting nature, and technical capability. Have you worked in consulting or process excellence? Do you have sharp SQL skills? Sounds like you’d be a great candidate.
The biggest challenges we face surround prospect requests during proof of value projects. Prospects get so excited about Celonis and what we have to offer that here and there they want to add little customization. It’s the teetering of the scale between giving the customer what they want and ensuring an efficiently executed sale utilizing our incredible out of the box solutions.
Growth-minded. Collaborative. Humble.
Each day is a little different, depending on what phase the proof of value projects are in. Every week, though, I will likely have a couple internal team calls, customer meetings, and time spent working on analyses within Celonis. During new product launches, I’ve also spent a good portion of my time learning the ins and outs for my own personal development.
