Dell Deal Business Development Manager for Extreme Scale Infrastructure (ESI) in AUSTIN, Texas

Deal Business Development Manager for Extreme Scale Infrastructure (ESI) – Austin, Texas

This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated individual to join a dynamic and growing team in one of today's hottest sectors of the IT industry. The Extreme Scale Infrastructure (ESI) organization consists of Data Center Solutions (DCS) & Datacenter Scalable Solutions (DSS) and focuses on infrastructure and solutions for the hyperscale and near-hyperscale space. Operating as a semi-autonomous business within Dell, ESI maintains a “start-up and scaling fast” mentality. This culture has allowed ESI to grow exponentially. As such, applicants for this role should demonstrate an ability to manage a broad spectrum of responsibilities and interface effectively with non-product management functions such as engineering, architecture, sales, procurement, operations, program management, and finance. The ability to effectively deal with ambiguity cannot be overstated.

We are looking for people who like CHANGE - changing priorities, changing deliverables, changing subjects to learn about. The change could be as often as monthly to daily (though that's unusual). The individual must love fast-paced environments working with highly intelligent and motivated people. They must be willing to put in the time and effort to excel and succeed as an individual and as a team. They must desire to learn about every aspect of business. After time spent in our organization, they will learn more in a short period of time than they have likely learned in years elsewhere. After time spent in ESI, they will KNOW they can work in any environment and on any subject and be highly successful. There is one overwhelming and overriding goal for every single person in our organization: DELIVER FOR THE CUSTOMER.
