The Solutions Engineer role allows you to act as both an internal and external technology expert in a way that a standard developer role cannot provide. Moreover, the role requires you to operate and educate both at a high level, speaking with execs and product leaders, and at a low level, speaking with developers and designers. Importantly, the role demands that you operate as an engineer, applying a methodical mindset both towards technical solutions and business oriented outcomes.
