The Customer Success team at Bluecore is committed to delivering quality products and services by holding each other accountable and always being open and honest. We use curiosity and creativity to drive ourselves and our customers towards higher levels of success while fostering a fun and collaborative environment.
Bluecore’s Forward Deployed Engineering (FDE) unit is a software engineering team dedicated to helping Bluecore customers to extract maximum value from the Bluecore decisioning platform.  As an FDE, you will bring your technical know-how to the front lines, working directly with customers to draw meaningful intelligence from their websites and implement marketing solutions that map to the customer’s vertical, audience behavior and product mix.
As a Forward Deployed Engineer, you will own (1) writing our JavaScript integrations, (2) configuring our internal Domain Specific Language that is used to configure marketing solutions, and (3) interfacing with our clients. Besides raw intellect and the ability to not take yourself too seriously, it is important to be detail-oriented with all our projects, as we work closely on a daily basis with a multitude of billion dollar brands, who all have very stringent requirements around look and feel.
You Are A Perfect Fit If You Love:
~Interfacing with Clients: You are someone who loves chatting with clients and figuring out how to push the limits of Bluecore’s technology for them. You are equal parts engineer, consultant and subject matter expert with distinct gravitas. Our customers are often non-technical and are responsible for choosing and buying technically sophisticated products. The better we are at helping them understand and use our product, the more successful they will be and the more they will appreciate Bluecore.
~Metrics and Data: You are someone who finds yourself consumed by daily, weekly and monthly metrics and loves turning those into best practices. Seriously, you will be advising executive-level decision makers at billion dollar brands on best business practices.
~Teaching Others: You are someone who actually believes that diversity in thought and skills makes for a better workplace and a better you.
