We help businesses centralize 100% of their data on a connected ecosystem, delivering actionable answers to any question, any time. Only Teradata’s enterprise-grade scalability scales all dimensions simultaneously—so our customers can handle the massive, cloud-based data workloads of the future, today.

So, you’ll need the experience and technical ability to see and assess their challenges in order to provide our best possible solutions for their needs. Your direct solutions sales experience is as vital as your ability to seek out and capitalise opportunities for profitable growth. This means working closely with your customer, both as a consultant and as a trusted advisor. Teradata’s professional reputation and range of solutions and services is second to none, so you’ll be a trusted ambassador for our brand.

Your communication skills must be such that you can identify and clearly explain solutions to potential customer, and that means right up to the C- suite. Excellent collaborative and organisational skills are a must, too, because you’ll be part of a greater Teradata team of technologists, sales colleagues and partners, all working together for the best interest of our customers. And it goes without saying that you’ll have the strong personal skills to quickly build trust and respect between you and your customer.
