Is it a match?

The job is at the crossroads of technology, communication and customer support. You will take the lead in Luciad's support organization, and will cooperate with many people throughout the company. Specifically, this means:

  • You address customer questions directly, mostly by e-mail. You provide high-tech support to developers working on Java and JavaScript (JS) client and server applications
  • You coordinate with engineering on advanced topics
  • Frequently having to ask "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" is NOT part of the job.
  • You propose, write and coordinate content for Luciad's online documentation platform (FAQ, tips & tricks, and so on)
  • You provide input to product management to ensure that all support feedback is considered in the product road map
  • You coordinate with the Luciad training department on recurring questions that could be addressed in training

  • You report on product support to management

You are a full member of the research & development team. At the same time, you will play a central role at the company, bringing you into contact with many Luciad people and many customer domains, and preparing you for interesting growth paths in directions such as engineering or product management.

Is it you we are looking for?

You love being challenged constantly by a large variety of interesting technical problems. You are able to take charge of those questions and problems, and you can work with a wide range of tools, including development tools, to resolve them successfully.

You can identify recurring issues with high-tech products and product documentation, and spot problem patterns. For high-profile issues, you are able to efficiently coordinate follow-up with multiple Luciad parties for a prompt and satisfactory resolution.

  • You have a Bachelor's degree in IT or engineering, or equivalent experience.
  • Development experience is an asset, particularly if you enjoy tracing issues in code.
  • You communicate effectively and positively in written and spoken English, and in at least one other Western European language (French, German, Spanish, Dutch ...).
  • You value customer satisfaction, are driven by consensus and always display a helpful and positive attitude.
