Anaplan are looking for Technical Support Analysts in Japan!


Anaplan is a financial, sales and operational cloud-based planning system. One model can contain billions of cells of data that can be updated in real-time by thousands of users - our Level 3 Technical Support team investigate and diagnose sophisticated problems reported by Anaplan customers - any issues that require in-depth knowledge of the product or a deep dive in to the logging or back-end of the system will be raised to the Level 3 Technical Support team.

As a Level 3 Technical Support Analyst you will gain in-depth knowledge of our multi award-winning product from end-to-end, work with large volumes of data using tools like Splunk and work closely with multiple teams including Engineering, Product, Operations, Customer Success and Customer Support to ensure that customer issues are resolved quickly and thoroughly.


Level 3 can feel slightly chaotic as priorities change on a daily and sometimes hourly basis, meaning that your focus may need to be frequently shifted between investigations. We are the intermediary between the customer and Anaplan internally - when we resolve issues we need to consider the best interests of the customer and also those of Engineering and Product. Consequently you need to have a good understanding of both the priorities of the customer and also the internal teams.

  • Work with leadership team on strategy and insights
  • Investigate issues raised via support cases, working directly with the customer
  • Work with the Engineering, Operations and Product teams to resolve issues
  • Raising bugs where appropriate
  • Presenting progress of issues / fixes to the customer and Customer Success organization
  • Detailing investigations of new issues and new SOPs
  • Driving supportability of the product


More About You:

  • Fluent in English and Japanese
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to present technical information in a clear and consumable way.
  • The ability to learn quickly with a desire to understand sophisticated systems and software behaviour.
  • Strong problem solving and analytical skills with a methodical approach.
  • The ability to work to tight deadlines under pressure (within a moderately chaotic environment!)
  • The ability to switch focus quickly as priorities change.
  • Work with support teams and customers to gather the right information to resolve issues and communicate resolutions and workarounds.
  • An interest, or knowledge of business analytic / modeling / business planning is highly desirable
  • Knowledge of programming, server architecture, networking and basic computing concepts such as resource contention, garbage collection or browser caching is highly desirable.
