Protegrity, a global leader in data security, protects sensitive data everywhere and future-proofs businesses as data-privacy regulations evolve. Maintaining privacy today across distributed data has become impossibly complicated. With Protegrity, enterprises can secure data wherever it resides, control how it’s protected, and have confidence that data is safe, even if a breach occurs. The Protegrity Data Protection Platform is a modern alternative to traditionally complex data-protection methods that leave gaps in security.Deep integrations with Snowflake, AWS, Azure, Amazon Redshift, Teradata, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Cloudera, Databricks, and many other enterprise applications ensure that data remains fully protected in hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud, and on-premises environments without performance penalties. The platform’s fine-grained data protection anonymizes Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that’s used in AI and Machine Learning models, providing faster access to critical analytics data and dramatically shortening the time to business insights.JOB POSITION: PRESALES SOLUTION ENGINEERLocation: Melbourne, Sydney, BrisbaneTHE OPPORTUNITY:As a key member of the Sales team, the Presales Solution Engineer is responsible for maximizing sales opportunities by architecting and acting as the Technical Lead in presenting and implementing Protegrity solutions for potential net new customers.
