When leading companies decide to “go Google,” it’s a huge win for spreading the power of cloud computing globally. But the Enterprise Sales team can’t do it alone. Once educational institutions, government agencies and other businesses sign on to use Google Enterprise products to make their work more productive, mobile and collaborative, you come in. As an Enterprise Sales Engineer, you assist fellow Sales Googlers by problem-solving key technical issues for our customers. You liaise with the Product Marketing Management and Engineering teams to stay on top of industry trends and devise enhancements to Enterprise products.

  • Work closely with our product, support, engineering, and sales teams.
  • Take responsibility for technical aspects of solutions to include such activities as supporting bid responses, product and solution briefings, proof-of-concept work, and the co-ordination of supporting technical resources.
  • Work hands-on with Google’s Enterprise Enterprise Apps products to demonstrate and prototype integrations in customer/partner environments.
  • Travel to visit customers throughout the Middle East and Africa.

  • Conversant in Web 2.0 development platforms and solutions to include J2EE, Java servlets, javascript, XML/XSLT/XHTML/HTML, ASP, CGI, Ajax, cookies, session management and flash.

We’ve helped millions of employees and organizations around the world to “go Google.” As masters of cloud computing, the Enterprise team helps small and large businesses, educational institutions and government agencies discover the wonders of “the cloud” and work smarter through Google Apps. Our technical and sales teams design and implement solutions for these organizations with custom features, security and support — all with Google’s philosophy of innovation and ease of use in mind.
