Job description

The Tactical Response team is looking for a special individual that has the ability to bridge the gap between our customers’ business problems and complex technical solutions. This position is focused on driving overall resolution of customer-impacting technology issues by both independently resolving issues and working with other groups outside of the Tactical Response Team to drive overall customer satisfaction.

  • You need to have the ability to clearly document and articulate the root cause of issues and resolutions to customers both verbally and written within the context of a customer service case.
  • You will be asked to have detailed and at times difficult conversations with customers regarding technical issues. A customer’s orientation may or may not be technical.
