About the Role
Udemy is looking for a Sales and Solutions Engineer with excellent communication and organization skills, knowledge and experience with software development practices and techniques, and a passion to help businesses become modern “learning organizations”.  Success requires close collaboration with multiple teams including engineering, design, sales, customer success, support, and a set of diverse stakeholders around the world.  You will need to understand general issues across a wide technical landscape from authentication protocols (e.g. SAML, OIDC, SCIM, OAuth), to assisting customers debug the effects of a corporate web proxy, and supporting our Customer Success team with API-based integration for small and large enterprise customers.  Knowledge of security protocols surrounding handling of personal data is a big plus.  Getting results for our customers and partners is vital, and this role requires someone that will fill the gaps that exist and communicate to technical and non-technical audiences.  And, as the world so often changes around us, you will need to be comfortable in a fast pace and growing business.  
The role reports into the Udemy for Business Sales and Solutions Engineering team, with direct support for Sales, Customer Success, Product Development, and Customer Support teams.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and a track record of successfully overcoming technical and security objections in customer integrations; problem-solving is in your DNA
  • An understanding of core security concepts; e.g., SSL/TLS, encryption ciphers, and GDPR data privacy.
  • Self-driven, highly motivated, and able to learn quickly in a fast-growing and dynamic environment.
