Job Description
We're looking for a talented and experienced Senior Technical Support Engineer who can hit the ground running in a fast-paced and quickly evolving environment. The position will report to the Director of Customer Support and will provide solutions based support to the company’s most important customers. The right candidate will bring the technical skills required to deploy, troubleshoot, and support the ThreatConnect product, related technologies, and integrations. Support Engineers are the front line in getting and keeping ThreatConnect customers up and running in a quick and impactful way and support them technically through the lifetime of the customers with ThreatConnect. This Engineer's expertise, combined with their ability to work with various teams onsite or remotely with the customer, allows them to ensure that customer relationships start off on the right foot and are sustained for the long haul.
About You 
You are highly motivated and work well in a fast-paced environment. In order to provide such an elite service, the ThreatConnect Customer Support team requires highly motivated individuals who love to tinker and solve problems as a team and individually alike. 
You are tech-savvy and love working with customers. You want to help our clients reach their full potential with our software. Whether it is helping with a new release, working on diagnosing and fixing a complex technical problem with the software or with the customer’s infrastructure, or proposing a better way to customize and use the products, you want to be there for our clients.
You think of Technical Customer Support first, but are willing to step up for other technical needs. Between debugging and solving complex technical problems with the software and the customer’s infrastructure, you are ready to step up for other needs. The needs may include debugging a deployment or stepping up and deploying the latest version of the software for a customer in a linux based environment if it is a need of the time and situation.
You have excellent communication skills and a problem-solving mindset. You believe that strong written and oral communication skills are just as vital as technical expertise and critical thinking ability.

    • Stay up to date on the latest ThreatConnect platform, integration offerings, and features
