Our mission at OmniSci is to make analytics instant, powerful, and effortless for everyone. The OmniSci platform is used in business and government to find insights in data beyond the limits of mainstream analytics tools. Harnessing the massive parallelism of modern CPU and GPU hardware, the platform is available in the cloud and on-premise. OmniSci originated from research at Harvard and MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). Now, our platform is transforming the way enterprises and governments make decisions by allowing them to interactively query, visualize, and power data science workflows over billions of records.

We are seeking a Solutions Architect to add to our Customer Success team. As a Solutions Architect, you will be the trusted technical advisor that clients rely upon when evaluating and demonstrating how OmniSci solves their big data analytics challenges. You will serve as a product and industry expert, effectively architecting and implementing the solution while also educating clients for continued success. In order to do so, you must make it a priority to proactively master all facets of the OmniSci product suite in order to help solve some of the most complex data challenges at scale. As part of the broader Customer Success team, you may also participate in conducting training sessions, professional service engagements, and post sales relationship management. As a result of your technical efforts, you will produce field developed utilities and technical notes which will benefit many other OmniSci departments including sales, marketing, and product management. OmniSci consultants are instrumental to the customer journey and growth of the company.

We’re big fans of hiring people who are not just great at what they do, but also how they do it. Your success in this role will be predicated on your ability to prioritize your work, be self-motivated and a self-starter, to communicate effectively, and to work well with others - not just within their own team, but also across peripheral teams.
