About the Team:

The Technical Support Engineer is a technical expert who is the primary contact between different support teams and core engineering teams. They handle work requests (which can be internally or externally generated) that have been routed for diagnosis and implementation while regular updating internal and external customers. The Technical Support Engineer will handle work requests directly, or solicit assistance from the core engineering teams within the R&D team for non-known issues/defect reporting. They would also identify application defects, then test and document them for the core engineering teams to fix as part of the product. The Technical Support Engineer is a analyst who has a record of customer satisfaction, a reference point for the entire team on several application topics and can resolve most of the items escalated from the previous support teams.
