Person Specification Splunk is looking to invest in driven, self-motivated, passionate technologists. Splunk has five core values; Passionate, Disruptive, Open, Innovative & Fun. Splunkers are energetic and hungry to deliver success to our customers.
As part of our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant Splunk is investing in Military Service leavers who are keen to pursue a career with Splunk as technical experts. Splunk is offering a fully funded training path, including exams, for a group of individuals who demonstrate a desire and aptitude for a technical career as a Splunker. All applicants will undertake a rigorous selection process prior to the successful applicants being funded and supported through the training paths. There will be two phases of enablement to be completed. On successfully completing the training, candidates will be offered a full-time position using the certifications and accreditations achieved.
This programme is specifically designed for individuals who are in their notice period, leaving the military in the next 4-6 months with time to undertake comprehensive training. There are two paths of enablement to reach either Sales Engineer or Professional Services Consultant. On successful completion of the enablement, individuals will be joining the Public Sector team and working with Central Government, Defence and Security environments. Applicants will therefore require Developed Vetting (DV) security clearance.
Splunk is prepared to invest in candidates who are driven to achieve the required level of certification for each phase in the timeframe allocated. The timeframes of each phase are shown below.
In the selection phase candidates will apply for a place on the programme in the same manner as applying for a job. Focus will be on transferrable skills, technical ability and aptitude to work in Splunk. Applicant will be down selected and interviewed as any person applying for a role at Splunk.
The successful applicants will all follow the same training path during Phase 1 of the program. This training is online and completed at the desired time of the candidate i.e. evenings and weekends.
In Phase 2 candidates will undertake training to progress to a PS Core Consultant. This will involve scheduled training online or in person. It would also require attendance to examination centres to attain the correct certification. This phase would also incorporate on the job training and experience via shadowing current Splunk Consultants as appropriate. At the successful conclusion of all certification, a full-time role at market rates will be offered.
Splunk employs technical resources in post-sales environments. The role for which this programme is investing is:
