You

You understand enterprise customer expectations of technical support and judge your success by the success of your team and the happiness of your customers. Maybe you’re interested in working directly with stakeholders in addressing their concerns, or perhaps you enjoy collaborating with global teams across many functions on operationalizing continuous process and product improvements with meaningful impact to the business of support. Either way, you thoughtfully advance your projects by listening, organizing, planning and facilitating decision-making to increase effectiveness, and happiness of both external and internal customers.

You are analytical, organized with a problem-solving mindset, and focused on continuous improvement of yourself, your team, and Support systems.
