Box is growing rapidly, and the world is eager to see how well the company can scale.  In order to meet our aggressive growth goals, we must enable our Channel Partners to implement Box as part of a broader digital strategy and help customers to solve advanced problems. The Channel Solution Architect will guide System Integrators on solution design and best practices for building on, integrating with, and customizing the Box Cloud Content Management Platform. You will translate Box product capabilities into clear guidance for System Integrator developers. You will be the Box Platform product expert within our partner community.

In this role, you will assist in the dynamic lifecycle of onboarding, educating, and enabling System Integrator partners on the Box Platform, and supporting the Channel Sales Team. This role will include in-depth architecture discussions (and whiteboarding), working directly with SI Developer resources, working with RFPs and Security Audits, and providing Channel Partner feedback and insights into the Product Management, Platform and Engineering functions at Box.  You will work alongside Account Executives, Channel Managers, and fellow Sales Engineers to nurture opportunities, and will spend a fair percentage of time in the field (travel required), to design and architect Box solutions.
