  • You’re a recognized leader and escalation point for our customer-facing teams.
  • You’re passionate about owning and resolving cases yourself, but humble enough to know when to ask for help.
  • And you’re flexible, collaborative, patient, open to feedback, proactive, and able to manage projects from start to finish.

What you’ll do when you’re here

  • Take on our customers’ most challenging technical problems after our Support Engineers have exhausted all other options
  • Delight the customer, and remind them why they chose Articulate
  • Coach and lead other team members, always demonstrating patience and empathy
  • Be proactive and deadline-driven, manage your time well, be organized, and propose creative solutions
  • Reproduce and isolate bugs before involving QA
  • Write high-quality bug reports

  • Write detailed client instructions and contribute to the Articulate knowledge base
  • Use Salesforce to record, track, and close cases
  • Be so knowledgeable, versatile, and humble that you can back up every other role on the team

What you’ll bring with you

You are a digital native; you innately possess a deep and broad knowledge of all things technical, including but not limited to:

  • Extensive experience with Windows, Office, and a wide variety of Windows applications, including experience troubleshooting installation problems and examining Windows Event Logs. Mac/Parallels experience is a plus.
  • Experience with iOS and Android devices.
  • Web Technologies, including all major browsers, email delivery, accessibility tools, and challenges such as low bandwidth, proxy servers, content filters, and firewalls.
  • No fear of logs—you can jump in and attempt to decipher any log file from any application; for example, within Windows Event Logs, Installer Logs, LMS Debug Logs, Tin Can API Communication logs, Fiddler logs, and DxDiag logs.
  • Basic understanding of corporate networks and security protocols.
  • Basic understanding of HTML/CSS.
  • You aren’t afraid to jump into tense situations, and you love turning frustrated customers into successful advocates.
  • You love to help everyone: customers, peers, and the neighbor down the street.
  • You have excellent oral and written communication skills and can convey complex concepts concisely and clearly to customers with professionalism, empathy, and excellent grammar and spelling.
  • You are positive, empathetic, driven, collaborative, flexible, patient, and confident. You are passionate about solving the toughest problems.
