You'll directly engage with clients, providing expert consultations, and presenting tailored, secure cloud solutions to meet their specific needs. You'll also develop and deliver compelling presentations, proposals, and communications to effectively showcase the value of our cloud solutions, with a special focus on contributing to Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
