3rd Line App Support Engineer & IT Ops,  

Software Operations Team, R&D

 

Want to do work that improves people's everyday lives and desire interesting Problem Spaces?

 

We are always looking for talented, passionate people who are curious and eager to do the best work of their lives at an innovative forward-thinking company.  We offer a fun, supportive, collaborative workplace.

From the futuristic Traka21 product you can buy online, through to Enterprise solutions for the world's biggest companies you interact with daily, at Traka you are a part in making a difference to everyday lives.

Whether when you buy a new car or take it to be serviced, are hurt and go to A&E, do your grocery shop, buy your wedding gifts, stay at a hotel, go to a theme park, need emergency services, or even when you drink water from your tap, there are Traka solutions deployed around the world powering these and more.

We are also part of ASSA ABLOY, a 45 billion SEK organisation, including Yale & HID, belonging to the Global Solutions division who offer a range of On-Premise and Cloud solutions for the world around you.

Our solutions and culture incorporate everyone's perspectives, so we never discriminate based on race, religion, national origin, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital, or disability status.

Where you will fit within the business:

 

You will be joining the Software Operations team that collaborates with the Software Development team.  We have a culture of freedom, leadership, innovation, self-discipline and follow DevOps principles. We are part of the R&D department where Mechanical, Electronics & Software are designed and made in-house. 

What your purpose will be:

 

You will primarily be performing 3rd Line Application & API Support and Advanced Professional Services to help drive Customer Success for our own solutions in addition to supporting integration with global access control systems.  You will enhance R&D and our products via IT Ops on Nutanix Enterprise Cloud.

Some interesting facts and cultural norms for the team you will join:

 

We like to have fun as we go about our work!  We openly engage with global teams and always think of the overall good when solving a problem.  We strive to continually learn new things together and on our own.

We trust, support, and treat each other with dignity and respect.  It's okay not to know the right answer and to admit it, as the team together can find the answer. We challenge ourselves often, fail fast, learn & adjust.

Most Friday lunchtimes we have a meal in a local Olney country Pub with a mix of people from other teams.

We are happy to tinker with electronics whether at work or at home and three of us have our birthday on the same day & month (but not year) so lots of cakes get eaten on that day!

More about you:

 

You like having a high degree of autonomy, you learn rapidly and eagerly, you are self-motivating and flexible; you do not wait to be told what to do and never feel "that's not my job". Reprioritisation is not a problem and you challenge yourself to work outside of your comfort zone.

You are a team player, you like helping others and you are always ready to both help and ask for help when needed. You share information and knowledge openly and proactively.

You enjoy being able to get under the skin of what our products are and how they work and readily want to identify the value for the team's internal and external customers.

You have an open mind towards a choice of technologies - not a hard preference that may block learning.
