The Sales Enablement Architect (Pre-sales Technical) is a dedicated performance and productivity partner to technical sales teams and leaders! As a key internal partner, the person in this role monitors and elevates sales leadership satisfaction by understanding and shaping technical sales team needs and requirements and working to align within and across the commercial system.

The role is tethered between internal content, skill, technology, tool providers, and the sales teams, at both strategic and tactical levels. This position is responsible for ensuring product, marketing, sales, training, and process teams understand the business requirements of sales leadership while also working cross functionally to design productivity services that meet or exceed those needs to deploy agile sales enablement solutions!

This role requires an understanding of business and technical / service requirements within an architectural domain, including industry knowledge. You will be encouraged to mentor others and share technical and architectural depth within the Elastic community.

We believe sales enablement includes three key pillars; talent enablement, message enablement, and pipeline enablement. Our enablement strategy aligns with that framework with the intent to empathize with sellers and make their work less complex as well as reduce customer confusion.
