Job Description

Our mission is to build the Covariant Brain, a universal AI to give robots the ability to see, reason and act on the world around them. Bringing AI from research in the lab to the infinite variability and constant change of our customer’s real-world operations requires new ideas, approaches and techniques.
Success in the real world requires a team that represents that world: diversity of backgrounds, points of view, and experiences. Our common denominator: ambitious expectations, love of learning, empathy for those around us, and a team-first mindset. Read more about our culture at .
The Solutions Team is the lynchpin to ensuring our cutting edge product delivers measurable value to real customers in real operating settings. In this role, you will interact with all parts of the organization in order to drive individual partner and customer success with our technology. Their success is our success and this role is vital to both.

Responsibilities of the Solutions Team

      • Pre-sales: Support sales and prospect meetings with technical knowledge, use-case analysis, qualification, and demos.
      • Solutions design: Work collaboratively with our partners to design cells that meets the requirements of the end customers.
      • Installation support: Ensure the smooth deployment of the cell at the partner and/or customer site and collaborate in order to achieve the expected level of performance.
      • Ongoing support: Be the first point of contact when there are technical issues, and lead upgrades, updates, and other technical improvements. 
      • Ongoing technical leadership and expansion support: Lead the technical relationship with customers, providing help, education and thought-partnership, while also sharing insight with your colleagues in Product.
In addition to delivering the work outlined above, Solutions engineers are also expected to be builders. They should be excited to design and implement workflows, content, processes and/or tooling to improve outcomes on each of the five areas above. You’ll collaborate with internal stakeholders and external partners to ensure that what we do not only ensures the current customer’s success, but also sets us up to scale and grow that success to new customers reliably over time.

    • You enjoy working across organizational lines with a variety of people all focused on the same goals
    • You relate to customers and are driven by their success. You seek not just to understand what they want, but to actively define and shape what they will most need for the future
The role is highly technical because our product is highly technical. It is exacting because our partners demand a high level of demonstrated performance. It is collaborative and dynamic because we are growing and changing as we prepare for the next stage. You will be an integral part of achieving our next plateau of growth as a trusted voice of the customer for the rest of our team.
Join the team in making the future of AI robotics a reality.
