Preferred Qualifications

SYSTEMS PRESALES CONSULTANT

Oracle

has a large community of pre-sales consultants across EMEA&APAC that on a daily bases engage in tasks such

as:

  • Product presentations & demonstrations

  • Advice customers & partners on how to best use Oracle products

  • Respond to tenders

  • Interact with product development about new releases, new functionality

As a pre-sales consultant you have the chance to develop in a very broad

spectrum, ranging from product expertise, customer interaction, communication

and general IT market knowledge. Successful pre-sales consultants are highly

demanded individuals with the possibility to develop a career in many different

IT (and non-IT) functions.

The EMEA Presales Centre is tasked to support the EMEA&APAC field pre-sales in a diverse number of ways. Ranging from

answering to tenders, customizing demos, building prototypes to directly

supporting partners and/or customers with specific requests.

For the centre we are looking for individuals who are willing to take on the challenge

of building excellent product knowledge (Oracle/Sun hardware) and to combine

this with a good commercial sense, clear communication while working in an

international environment.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

The

presales center in Bucharest is expanding it’s support to cover the Oracle

(SUN) Hardware product-line. On a day to day bases you will work closely with

the Hardware presales teams across countries in EMEA&APAC. The tasks delivered by the Presales Center hardware consultant

will expand over time, but initially will be focused on:

  • Supporting the field presales with creating and maintaining ‚shopping

baskets’. When large customers choose Oracle as their hardware provider they

typically specify their needs as „small, medium or large systems”. Shopping

baskets translate the customer requirements to actual products, these baskets

need to be initially specified and over time maintained as products become

obsolete.

  • Create and maintain component „picklists” according to given specifications.

Picklists are general product configurations (made up of many components) that

are known to have certain characteristics (e.g. performance, availability). An

example of how picklists are used is: the customer asks for a configuration to

support 250 Ebusiness Financials users. This request would then be matched

against a predefined ‚picklist’ known to deliver good performance in the

requested situation.

  • Provide Technical Approval for Completeness on hardware offers before they go

to customers. For example do a check that the components offered work together

technically, that all the required cables etc. are included and that all the

needed power supplies, mounting material etc. is included in the offer.

Over time these activities will be expanded to cover technical tender

responses, responding to technical enquiries and doing product briefings.

A significant portion of your time will also be used to stay up to date on the

latest product releases & Oracle’s strategy. This is done through self-study,

online training, classroom trainings depending on the topic.

QUALIFICATIONS:

fulfil the role of pre-sales consultant we are looking for individuals that

match the following profile:

Technical:

  • Good understanding of the IT market & trends.

  • Technical/IT education, university degree

  • Works in an IT related role today (preferably hardware related)

o Storage Technologies (Disk and Tape)

o Networks

o Datacenter equipment (racks, power sequencer, etc...)

  • Experience using or managing Windows, Linux or Unix operating systems. Linux

experience is a strong plus.

  • Eagerness to learn! Oracle has an incredibly broad (and growing) portfolio of

industry leading products. If you find it interesting and fun to pick up a new

product and master these in a very short timeframe, this is the place to

be!

Non-Technical:

  • Good communication skills, both oral and written in Japanese and English! You are able to not only understand complex

technologies but also to explain to others in clear and simple terms. You can

articulate key messages very clearly.

most of Europe)

  • Results orientation, you won’t be satisfied until the job is done with the
