As a Solutions Architect, you will play a critical role in educating potential customers, partners, and existing customers on the features and value of Cohesive Network products. You will connect users to solutions, through product education, proof of concepts, project management, and product design. You will bridge sales, engineering, troubleshooting, and product teams. Through team-based project management, you will help the professional services team members deliver VNS3 products and onboarding consulting projects.
While your primary role is to help customers customize network topologies and build solutions in cloud, you will also have the flexibility to shape our product direction and engineering development processes. As a growing company, we seek team players who will contribute beyond job description roles.
You need to have foundational knowledge in virtualization concepts and experience in project management and consulting. Life in the cloud is a never ending stream of community members, users, potential users, partners, and teammates. You will be the bridge between product and solution.
If you devour new knowledge, if your approach to problem solving is highly elastic, this is for you.

Cohesive Networks aims to be an equal opportunity employer and is determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
As a growing UK and US-based cloud security and network company, we are focused driving customer value and developing flexible software products. Customers seek out Cohesive Networks to solve specific, urgent network connectivity and security needs. Our partnerships with cloud providers and system integrators allow us to focus on solving enterprise needs.
Cohesive Networks positions ourselves as cloud networking advisors in a space full of vendors selling “magic”. Our leadership team promotes the belief that enterprise IT should incorporate security best practices and existing resources without redoing everything for cloud. Because of our strong believe in low “cognitive load” on customers, Cohesive Networks has always been provider, vendor, application, OS and script neutral.
Our VNS3 technology lets cloud customers customize networking features for specific use cases. Customers save cloud run time costs and simplify network management. Currently, VNS3 is available in the cloud marketplaces for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, CenturyLink Cloud, and ElasticHosts. VNS3 is also available for IBM Bluemix/Softlayer, Google, VMware, OpenStack, HPE Eucalyptus, Abiquo, KVM, and Xen.
When hiring, we look for candidates who can adapt quickly and apply new ideas to their role. We give an “elasticity test” to all applicants, from software engineers to sales. The test is not technical, but a way to measure how you process, learn, and express new information in a limited amount of time. Just like our software, our team is software, vendor, and education agnostic. All new hires spend roughly 2 weeks in the Chicago Headquarters to get to know the team and take the “Cohesive Class.”
