Lead Splunk Professional Services Consultant

Job Description

Our Lead Splunk Consultant performs as a “Player – Coach”, responsible primarily for client projects but also sharing ownership for the development of Aditum’s Splunk Professional Services staff and practice as a whole – as well as being a key driver of Aditum’s Core Values.

Aditum’s Splunk Professional Services (PS) Consultants drive solutions to ensure Splunk enterprise deployments make the deepest impact possible across a customer’s organization.

The Lead Splunk Professional Services Consultant will:  

Splunk Consulting

  • Drive complex deployments of Splunk while working with the customers to solve their unique problems across a variety of use cases
  • Leverage previous experiences, share best practices and create innovative solutions that will maximize customers’ value of Splunk and aid in user adoption
  • Knowledge transfer to customers throughout a project lifecycle
  • Develop product expertise in at least one Splunk premium app (Splunk ES, Splunk ITSI, UBA, Phantom)
  • Develop and continually extend domain expertise in at least one of Splunk’s primary use areas (IT security, IT Ops, Dev Ops, etc.)

Technical Team Leadership

  • Act as a coach/mentor/first-line point-of-contact to Splunk PS staff that need technical assistance with training or project work, when less experienced staff may require such assistance
  • Act as a Shadow Lead while delivering Splunk PS, whereby less experienced staff shadow on assignments, are given responsibilities which are reviewed and coached, and documenting shadow evaluations
  • Take action when Splunk PS projects go sideways and require senior involvement
  • Review SOWs from sales engineering prior to their presentation to customers
  • Based upon SOW and project reviews, be involved (along with the Services Manager) in the assignment of projects and tasks to the most appropriate PS team member
  • Conduct and document technical interviews with potential new Aditum PS hires
  • Lead the technical portion of monthly Splunk PS staff conference calls (30 minutes to address any technical issues among staff)
  • Perform monthly 1×1’s with assigned Splunk PS staff
  • Provide input into annual staff performance reviews/assessments for assigned staff
  • Provide active input to team collaboration and questions (i.e., on Slack)
  • Contribute knowledge management and artifacts to Confluence
  • Assist with the creation of training labs (exercises) in Aditum’s internal Splunk lab (AWS)
  • Assist with the establishment of training documents that will correspond with our labs and Splunk’s certification process, in order to help develop other Aditum Professional Services staff as they go  through Splunk’s Certified Consultant (SCC) / accreditation process
  • Attain and keep current with Splunk certifications, including certifications on premium apps, so as to maintain a top level of expertise with the Splunk platform

Practice Development

  • Assist with the guidance of our technical sales and delivery processes and methodologies

Other Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with technical presales engineers (SE’s) to review SOW’s, to ensure that projects are properly scoped and that the SE-to-PS handoff is a smooth one.
  • Occasionally perform pre-sales engineering duties on direct-sourced engagements (note: on a longer-term basis, this will be performed by a dedicated technical pre-sales role, but ad hoc assistance may be needed on occasion, based upon specific expertise that may be needed in particular situations)
  • Lead with a “customer first” attitude and be an exhibitor of Aditum’s Core Values, as an example to other team members

Requirements

Attributes that demonstrate that a team member is ready to succeed in this role:

  • Minimum 3+ years of Splunk administration, architecture or consulting experience
  • Minimum 10+ years of cybersecurity or technology industry experience
  • Excellent teaming, coaching and communication skills
  • Actively and regularly engaged in helping other team members (shows a propensity to naturally want to coach / assist / help)
  • Timely and thorough in their help and troubleshooting with others
  • High customer satisfaction scores and work excellence on assigned projects
  • Demonstrates servant leadership
  • Demonstrated ability to take on additional workloads while still maintaining high levels of performance and responsiveness (when taking on responsibility for others, it generally adds hours to your day/week)
