Solution Architect - Federal

  • Sales
  • USA, East Coast
  • Full-time


Location: Remote.

Noname Security, founded in 2020, is one of the fastest-growing cybersecurity companies, acquired by Akamai Technologies, the world's largest and most trusted Cloud Security Platform. Our mission is to reduce the risk of API security vulnerabilities and cyber-attacks. Our API Security Platform is an out-of-band solution that doesn’t require agents or network modifications and offers deeper visibility and security than API gateways, load balancers, and WAFs. No one addresses the API security challenge like Noname.

You are the technical workhorse through the entire sales cycle, driven to get the Technical Win. You will work closely with our Federal agencies to support the mission, educate, empower, and ensure their success on the Noname platform. Your technical expertise in Noname's technology will allow you to find best-fit solutions for prospects, train and onboard new customers via video conference or in-person, through documentation, and support the customer's long-term success. As a subject matter expert, you are a trusted source for technical information, support, and communication.

As a Solution Architect, you are the technical customer advocate within Noname. To aid your customers, you will work closely with every team at Noname, from Sales and Product Management to Engineering and Customer Support.

Ultimately, you are passionate about technology and can explain complex technical concepts in easy-to-understand terms.

  • Manage a project, work to deadlines, and prioritize between competing demands.

  • As a critical part of Noname’s Federal Sales team, Solution Architects work hands-on to drive technical discussions to help generate new business, expand an existing business, and keep our customers happy.
  • In business generation and expansion, you’ll be tasked with qualifying prospect and customer use cases, technical requirements discovery, leading demonstrations, solution identification, design, and collaboration with workshops and proofs-of-value (PoVs).
