Granicus is seeking a Solution Consultant!  The Solution Consultant is a highly strategic technical consulting resource for Granicus. This person is responsible for actively driving and managing the technology evaluation stage of the sales process, working cooperatively with the sales team to help our federal, state, and local government customers identify the best-fitting solutions to meet their service delivery goals.
At Granicus, we value every conversation as an opportunity to leverage human-centered practices and a systems-thinking approach to transform how people experience public services. We apply a user empathy, data, and insights to nurture the connection between people and government. Our Solution Consultants serve as both technical and consultative strategy leads, analyzing the current state customer experience, then mapping an idealized journey to meet our customers’ goals and inspire new approaches.

Solution Consultants lead discovery and technical demonstration activities to understand our customers’ needs and their overall goals. They conduct individual interviews, facilitate discovery workshops, and review content or data to glean insights – then develop actionable plans for enhanced digital experiences. They produce artifacts to aid the development of strategies that meet real human needs – including personas, journey maps, messaging frameworks and more. Our Solution Consultants are responsible to provide agencies with guidance in various spheres of business, including engagement strategy, business transformation, and digital and innovation capabilities.

Solution Consultants identify technical issues assuring complete customer satisfaction through all stages of the sales process, establishing and maintaining strong relationships throughout the sales cycle. They create combined solutions of services and technology to facilitate critical business objectives for Granicus customers. A good Solution Consultant needs to be an expert in government technology and business practices – and have excellent communication skills to work with various leaders throughout the agency to support the goals and objectives of the organization.
The opportunities to make a difference while designing solutions for the public sector are limitless. Projects range from designing and demonstrating the possibilities of a rural county’s digital communications initiative, to technically architecting a state-wide social services communication initiative, to creating a proof of concept for a large federal agency’s digital audience project in a short timeframe. This position reports to the Manager of the Solution Consulting team and works alongside other Enterprise Solution Consultants within our Local Enterprise, State, and Federal sales teams.

  • Evaluate internal functions, business development strategies, and IT processes – and suggest improvements.
  • Create business architecture models to reflect the organization's strategies and goals.
  • Evaluate agency systems for discrepancies, vulnerabilities, and improvements.
  • Work with product and sales teams to interpret customer requirements and deliver solutions with the end-goal of sales in mind.
  • Meet with agencies and help them reimagine the connection between people and the government.
  • Develop and deliver effective Pitch, Solution, and Technical Demonstrations of key aspects of Granicus solutions that show how the solution will help the customer achieve goals.
  • Build and maintain a library of solutions, customer examples, supporting collateral, and POCs.
  • Build and maintain demonstration websites and assets that will be used by our team and others throughout Granicus.
  • Guide technical scoping conversations with the agency and our Granicus implementation teams.
  • Assist with sales and our own team's learning paths through content, coaching, and training projects.
  • Learn the full suite of solutions that make up the Granicus platform through constant training, review of product releases, and internal product discussions.
