Magnetic Force, our new self serve interface, brings control directly to them, putting the keyboard and control in their hands. Help us understand the needs of our clients, build long-lasting relationships, and put the power of the platform at the tips of our users' fingertips.

As a sales engineer, you'll connect directly with our customers in order to deeply understand their needs, both business and technical. You'll work directly with our sales team to help potential new prospects understand how our product works, and how it differs from other platforms with which they might be familiar. You'll communicate proficiently about technical features of the platform, and persuasively present how Magnetic Force can help build true value for brands and agencies. Alongside our account management team, you'll also help build healthy continuing relationships with existing clients, and work closely with our product team to ensure that all of Magnetic's clients have their voices heard.

  • Contribute to pre-sales discussions with sales members by consulting with potential customers on the features and functionality offered
  • Maintain a keen interest in the market, know how Magnetic’s platform capabilities address current major concerns, and be engaged in relevant communities
  • Be recognized as an expert in how digital advertising technology should be most efficiently used to create high-value outcomes for brands

Skills and Experience:

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills, and a desire to directly connect with end-users and customers
  • 5+ years of Sales Engineering experience on a platform or subscription based service

  • Extensive prior DSP, DMP, Cross-Device vendor, or other ad tech platform experience
  • A deep understanding of the ad tech + marketing tech space
  • Strong analytical skills -- giving you the confidence to assemble robust working solutions around the specific demands and limitations of clients
