Snowflake started with a clear vision: develop a cloud data platform that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Snowflake developed an innovative new product with a built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. We are now a global, world-class organization with offices in more than a dozen countries and serving many more.


Snowflake's Pre-Sales team is actively seeking a Partner Sales Engineer to help us build an expansive Partner Ecosystem that includes technology vendors such as Informatica, Thoughtspot, Fivetran, and many more.

  • Evangelize joint solutions and product integrations by speaking at conferences, webinars, and other marketing events 
  • Present Snowflake technology and vision to executives and technical contributors at prospects and customers
  • Immerse yourself in the ever-evolving industry, maintaining a  deep understanding of competitive and complementary technologies and vendors and how to position Snowflake in relation to them.
  • Collaborate with Product Management, Engineering, and Marketing to continuously improve Snowflake’s products and marketing
  • Build assets to enable and train Snowflake Sales Engineers on partner integrations and solutions 


  • 7-8 years of industry experience with a minimum of 3 within a pre-sales/customer facing role 
  • Broad range of experience with large-scale database or data warehouse technologies and/or business intelligence technology 
  • Understanding of cloud architectures and services involving SaaS solutions with any of the popular cloud providers (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure)
  • Outstanding presenting skills to both technical and executive audiences, whether impromptu on a whiteboard or using presentations and demos
  • Ability to connect a customer’s specific business problems and Snowflake’s solutions
  • Experience architecting solutions with vendor technologies such as Tableau, Informatica, Thoughtspot, Qlik, Fivetran, AWS Sagemaker, Dataiku, Collibra, Immuta, etc.
  • Hands-on expertise with SQL and SQL analytics
  • University degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics or related fields, or equivalent experience preferred 

Our Sales Engineers are customer-obsessed and we believe in the value we can add and stay honest about it. We love to learn, are open to giving and receiving feedback, and are passionate about making our clients successful. Our team works to ensure data is accessible, usable, and valuable to everyone.

Snowflake is growing fast, and we’re scaling our team to help enable and accelerate our growth. We are looking for people who share our values, challenge ordinary thinking, and push the pace of innovation while building a future for themselves and Snowflake.
