The Role: 

At ForgeRock, our Technical Consultants are the core of our Deployment Support Services (DSS) team.

  • Becoming an active member of the ForgeRock community: writing blog posts, wiki articles and generally evangelising ForgeRock software and technology.
  • Attending ForgeRock and community events.
  • Assisting the Sales and Pre-Sales teams regarding technical consulting delivery and implementation services.
