You’ll see us expand into more markets with innovative products and services that are changing the way companies recruit new talent around the world. Whether you’re interested in our sales, technology, or corporate support roles, you’ll have the opportunity to truly shine. Our employees are what drive our success and are at the very core of our identity.

Together….We Empower Employment!

With our continuously expanding suite of recruiting software products, it is crucial that we strive to fit the right customer with the right solution.  It’s not about selling a one-size-fits-all product…it’s about revolutionizing a customer’s recruiting efficiency by plugging into CareerBuilder’s vast product-suite in a way that perfectly fits their specific needs and goals.  That’s where our Solution Architect team comes in! 

Senior Integration Solution Architects partner with the sales force and its leaders to help increase revenue and achieve sales goals within CareerBuilder’s most vital customer accounts. Senior ISA’s, in an unbiased fashion, use their technical, sales, and recruiting software business acumen to understand client needs and collaborate resources to present the best possible solution design while also deepening existing client integration to protect and maintain account revenue.

The Senior ISA is responsible for defining customer technical requirements related to recruitment technology and custom solution design and is responsible for creating solution scopes, working with technology to finalize solution design, and present solutions directly to reps and customers. Senior ISA’s collaborate with multiple internal departments to ensure customer needs are being met and sales targets are being reached, including but not limited to: Sales, Automated Posting Solutions, Engagement and Services, Client Support, Product Development, Integration, Business Development, and Customer Success.  Being consultative and solutions-oriented are critical for this position as is fostering and leveraging partnership relations with our customer’s key 3rd party vendors and systems.
