Why would you recommend others to start as a Solution Engineer at Celonis?

What makes Celonis special and stand out from other companies for me are the team I work with and the company culture. The culture in the Madrid hub is very multi-cultural, everyone is driven, collaborative and entrepreneurial, which makes it a great environment to kick-start your career. You not only learn through the comprehensive onboarding programme and the work you do, but also from your peers. You get customer exposure from the start and you get to work on some of the most critical topics in helping the business scale. It’s a unique role which will really push your professional development.

The Centre of Excellence Program offers the opportunity to take ownership of strategic projects that impact the company’s hyper-growth, while learning and collaborating with the wider Solution Engineering organization. It is incredible to see the value derived from the assets we have developed in the past year, a true reflection of the motivation and talent of the team, matched with the holistic approach of the Center of Excellence!

Why would you recommend others to start as a Solution Engineer at Celonis?

Solution Engineers at Celonis are uniquely placed at the intersection of technicality and business by the very nature of the platform - meaning that starting in the SE team is a great opportunity to develop skills in both domains. No two days are the same and you can go from discussing cash flow issues with a CFO one morning, to building a data model or running an IT infrastructure workshop in the afternoon. For people who love to learn fast and be challenged it’s an ideal place to get started in tech - and a strong springboard into a career in the industry.

What was the biggest benefit from the Solution Engineering program so far?

  1. Being part of such an ambitious and talented team where people always help each other and at the same time pushing each other to the next level.

What three attributes would someone need to succeed in being a Solution Engineer?

As a solution engineer you need to be able to understand the pain & needs of customers and prioritize them. Authenticity and analytical thinking will help you to uncover the underlying root causes. With some technical understanding you will be able to translate these insights into solutions to generate value for each customer.
