Job Title: Pre-Sales Engineer

Location: Manila, Hybrid

Job Overview:

As a Pre-Sales Engineer at Brankas, you will play a crucial role in supporting the sales team by providing technical expertise, conducting product demonstrations, and engaging with clients to understand their needs. You will be responsible for training, assisting in Request for Proposals (RFPs), advising on the appropriate solutions for client requirements, and addressing technical inquiries. You will be required to work closely with Sales, Product, Marketing, Engineering, and Implementation teams to ensure success.

This position requires a combination of technical proficiency, communication skills, and a strong understanding of the financial technology industry.

You should have the insight to make the connection between a customer’s specific business problems and Brankas’ solution, the customer-facing skills to communicate that connection, and vision to a wide variety of technical and executive audiences, and the technical skills to be able to conduct demos and provide consultative assistance on architecture and implementation.

The person we’re looking for shares our passion about Open Finance and thrives in a dynamic environment. That means having the flexibility and willingness to jump in and get done what needs to be done to make Brankas and our customers successful.

This is a hybrid position. Hybrid employees can alternate between both remote, office, or at customer location (if in person meeting is required).

Product Demonstrations:
