We are looking for a dynamic individual with a proven track record of success as a Technical Support Engineer within the software industry.

  • Support internally developed Terminal Operating System software applications and hardware products and provide assistance in troubleshooting customers systems issues as they pertain to their use of NAVIS products.
  • Product issues are reported and recorded by customers via the company website, and are then assigned to a Support Engineer to resolve. The assigned Support Engineer is responsible for managing the case from beginning through to resolution and closure via the other departments such as Sustaining (Development), QA Testing and Product Release. Assistance may need to given with appropriate RMA processes.
  • Support role mainly consists of verifying, reproducing and isolating bugs or faults reported by the customers. Although the role does not call for any development work to be performed, it helps to have the ability to debug the software application and step through the code to isolate and understand the potential cause of a problem. Java, Groovy and/or other programming language experience is a plus.
  • Bugs are normally reproduced in a lab environment using copies of the datasets supplied by the customer. If this is unsuccessful, then remote connections are established to the customers test environment to allow the engineer to isolate issues further.
  • Customers can also raise “question type” cases which often require detailed investigation work to be carried out in order to provide an answer. Reference sources include manuals, the case management tool (for searching for other logged cases), the application code, and Escalation Engineers or Product Engineering, who have spent several years supporting the products
  • On-site customer facing work includes work on upgrading NAVIS software or hardware, and helping to resolve any critical bugs or faults that could not be reproduced off site, and testing the integration of the NAVIS products with other 3rd party systems.
  • Account and/or project management work on assigned accounts such as conducting conference calls, case/project reviews, assist with PS project go-lives and handling other account related issues.
  • In addition to the above, by virtue of their superior knowledge, skills, and experience, a Senior Support Engineer will provide leadership and guidance to more junior members of the Support team, take leadership in solving more complex issues, and be a focal point internally within NAVIS for any issues surrounding their product set and its related systems technologies.
