  • Evaluate Performance Metrics to ensure success and continuous improvement

We’re looking for a Deployment Engineer with technical knowledge and a customer-focused mindset. To succeed in this new position, you will need:

  • Customer-focused approach and commitment to ensuring customer success with new technology
  • Ability to communicate with sales, marketing and operations executives.
  • Ability to address unexpected challenges while onsite – you will need to solve challenging problems to implement 6RS technology in each customer’s warehouse environment

  • Experience working alongside a commercial organization
  • Learning sales and marketing strategies and tactics
  • Familiarity with Linux and writing scripts to automate tasks
  • Familiarity with databases and the ability to write and edit SQL queries

  • Computer Vision
  • Programming
  • Linux System Administration
  • SQL
  • Automated Software Testing
  • Networking
  • Web Services

Travel: Deployment Engineers travel frequently (more than 50% of the time) to be onsite with customers during implementations. These implementations typically last 3-4 weeks and the most complex implementations require additional time onsite.
