Multiple IT/T-com/Cloud positions

Approved by SB:

I have a few opportunities within a national IP/MPLS/Cloud/Data Center player.

If interested, drop me a PM. I'll give you an email address to forward your resume to; and then I'll drop that resume directly on the hiring managers desk.

I'll also add that the Sales Engineer, and the DC Sales Exec roles are "on fire" req's that need to be filled quickly. The comp package is also very lucrative; just in case you're curious.

Current req's:

1. Atlanta based Senior Sales Engineer that can speak telecom/IP/MPLS.
2. Multiple Senior Sales Execs: Urgent needs are 2 slots in DC: one for the fed space, the other for the commercial space. Note: for the Fed spot, it is more important that the person know the fed sales process, know the contract vehicles; the tech will be taught. For the other roles, the person is at a minimum expected to be technically astute.

Add Chicago to the hot sheet: Chicago, needs a super star. Someone that can close, not straight engineer, a technical sales person that has sold direct before. Hosting/Collo/Cloud a must. I have found EMC has the same landscape I am looking for which is hardcore.
