Adrian Wilkins' Experience

Sales Engineer / Video Solutions Architect

Nasdaq OMX / Thomson Reuters

Public Company; 10,001+ employees; TRI; Information Technology and Services industry

August 2012April 2014 (1 year 9 months) Toronto, Canada

In this very technical pre-sales role I designed and built bespoke enterprise video solutions for global clients. I would engage with the customer to fully understand their business and technical requirements. Most cases required a proof of concept where we would use our integration lab to setup mock events. I would scope out work and ensure all STOW was signed off before any work commenced. I would price up my work and feed this back into sales for the final quote. I also evaluated new technology for our streaming product team.

I also created technical documents for each solution and maintained our Knowledge Base articles on existing and emerging technologies.
I provided feedback into the strategic roadmap on our video systems integration and suggested improvements to widen our compatibility with other technologies.

I worked closely with vendors such as; Akamai, Cisco, Bluecoat, Riverbed and Kontiki.
Clients included but not limited to; IBM, Samsung, Universal Studios Orlando, Bell, Telus, Blackberry, GE and Suncor Energy.

Corporate Solutions was acquired by NASDAQOMX in June 2013 from Thomson Reuters.
