As a Solutions Architect at TRM Labs, you are responsible for delivering technical excellence and strategic guidance to client accounts. You will lead the technical pre/post-sales relationship, propose business processes and technical architectures, demonstrate the product, and help clients integrate and succeed with the TRM platform.

  • Present TRM's APIs to clients to help them understand implementation requirements and timelines
  • Create resources that clients need to integrate successfully with TRM APIs including API docs, reference architectures, and reference implementations
  • Own the relationships with technical counterparts and help them solve any issues that arise during integration
  • Stay up-to-date on the latest product features, dependencies, and architecture to effectively map TRM solutions to client requirements
  • Assess and synthesize client needs that arise during implementation to inform product roadmap

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of pre-and post-sales experience, either as a sales engineer, solutions engineer/architect, customer success engineer, or a consultant
  • Strong empathy and customer orientation. You are able to demonstrate technical concepts to technical and non-technical audiences, build value with end users, and drive solutions over the line
  • Experience working with engineers and project managers on the implementation, testing, and customization of API-based SaaS products
  • In-depth understanding of APIs, databases, and developer tools
  • Experience in Enterprise SaaS, data analytics, payments, and/or ML/AI technologies
  • Exceptional ability to structure problems and identify the most critical issues to prioritize
  • High degree of initiative and attention to detail, including completing multiple tasks simultaneously and functioning with minimal supervision
  • Previous software development experience in backend web development preferred
  • This position requires an active Top Secret clearance and must be located within the Washington DC Metro area.
