My Client is looking for an enthusiastic, talented, customer-facing and capable technical expert to join their Technical Professional Services team based in the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe or South Africa. You will report to the Director of Professional Services who is based in Dallas and add capacity and working hours coverage to the current US-based team – though as part of that team your work will be anything but geographically ringfenced, and you’ll interact with some of the world’s biggest brand names in finance, insurance, healthcare in the USA, Australia and India as well as the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and South Africa.

The core of your responsibilities will be to work closely with the client’s infosec, IT teams during installations and rollouts, helping and advising them on the installation and administration of the software – but you’ll also be essential in providing technical support and expertise to support our Presales team during sales engagements and RFPs.
