StreetLight pioneered the use of Big Data analytics to shed light on how people, goods, and services move, empowering smarter, data-driven transportation decisions. The company applies proprietary machine-learning algorithms and data processing resources to measure travel patterns of vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians that enable complex transportation problem solving using analytics available on SaaS platform, StreetLight InSight®. Acquired by Jacobs as a subsidiary in February 2022, StreetLight continues to provide innovative digital solutions to help communities reduce congestion, improve safe and equitable transportation, and maximize the positive impact of infrastructure investment.
StreetLight’s history and largest customers may still be governments and public sector organizations, but our Commercial Sector team has grown from a team of 2 to 6 and more than doubled its business in the last 5 years. This Solutions Engineer will primarily work with customers in private-sector markets. You will work with private providers of new modes of transportation and other companies whose business relates to transportation as they evaluate and leverage StreetLight’s real-world transportation analytics. Example clients include TNCs (ride-hailing and micro-mobility companies), urban air mobility companies, automakers, the autonomous vehicle industry, electric vehicle charging solutions providers, private infrastructure and toll developers, real estate developers, retailers, insurers, consulting firms, partner software companies, and many more. 
We are looking for a savvy, sophisticated technical sales professional who goes beyond sales to truly educate clients and partners, work closely with our professional services team to design custom solutions, and work closely with our executives and other cross-functional teams to further develop and build new processes for a scalable go-to-market strategy. Successful candidates will have experience tackling complex problems, fostering and managing client relationships across a range of different industries, and developing and then executing their own strategies.

    • Work closely with the Sales Team to introduce StreetLight’s unique technology to prospective customers and strategic partners, and to implement API and data evaluations, as well as pilot projects. Assist in driving sales to new customers and expand existing relationships through annual and multi-year contracts. 
    • Work closely with the Sales Team to refine business plans and drive the execution of go-to-market and selling strategies. This includes understanding various private sectormarkets’ business, pricing levers, and data gaps. 
    • Define and implement technical solutions based on the StreetLight InSight® platform and underlying transportation analytics, to meet customer needs. 
    • Develop and deliver presentations and demos of the software tailored to engage both executive-level and highly technical audiences. 
    • Cultivate relationships with technical members of staff at customer accounts, serving as their primary technical liaison at StreetLight Data both pre- and post-sale.

    • Participate in building internal knowledge base of technical and market related knowledge by delivering internal presentations and/or training course development. 
    • Interface with other functional groups, project teams and internal stakeholders to effectively work toward the goal of jointly exceeding assigned quotas. 
    • Provide regular updates to management, operations and support staff concerning account issues and financial status. 

Skills & Qualifications:

    • 3+ years of experience in a technical pre-sales role, working with enterprise software or data product OR 5+years of technical experience in transportation planning, transportation engineering, or geographic information systems preferred.
