We are looking for an exceptional Solutions Engineering Director who will work directly with Ribbon’s largest and most strategic customers to make sure our products are powering better healthcare decisions in the real world.

You will be critical to both the present implementation and the future design of Ribbon’s product.

Together, we can create a healthier future where people receive exceptional care!

  • Commitment to Ribbon Health company values, working on an exceptional team, and building an exceptional company.

When you see a problem, you solve it or make sure someone else does by stepping in to help your team and offering creative solutions outside of the scope of your responsibilities.
  • Excellent Communicator: You can explain complex technical concepts with clarity and simplicity, to an engineer and an executive.
