Here at Appian, we’re passionate about automation, speed, and efficiency; and the CIO department is a great place to apply these values! From Information Security, Business Technology, to Solution Engineering, joining Appian will provide you with the opportunity to lead technical strategy, execution and communication for all applications to support Appian employees, customers, and partners across the world. Join us, as we work collaboratively to grow Appian across the world.

The Appian Solution Engineering team provides technical expertise to our customers around the globe, touching every layer of the Appian platform.  From data analysis to creative problem solving, this team tackles the most challenging technical problems encountered by Appian customers and partners. 

We are looking for a hands-on, bilingual in English and Spanish Technical Software Support Engineer with excellent analytical and communication skills. Internally we call this role Solution Engineer, and ideally you not only have a strong interest in software development ( minus the coding 8 hours a day part ), but also have a desire to work closely with some of our highest stakes customers.  A keen interest in data analytics is also desirable, as you will have the opportunity to work with big datasets.  To reiterate, however: this is not a software development gig, and we don’t require a Computer Science degree. You would also have the opportunity to improve customer experience and internal systems, tools and processes used by the Solution Engineering team.

Appian is headquartered in the McLean, Virginia area, and we are supportive of both Remote and Hybrid work environments.

To be successful in this role, you will:

  • Apply advanced troubleshooting techniques and collaborate with various teams and subject matter experts to help reproduce and resolve customer issues
  • Drive customer communication during critical incidents, working on highly complex customer problems that may span multiple technologies such as: VPNs, databases, authentication, and more.
  • Leverage your contact with customers to capture feedback with how Appian can improve
  • Write tutorials and other technical articles for both Appian Customers and Appian Employees
  • Identify opportunities to enhance 24/7 systems and processes to improve the customer experience.  Participate in evaluating, prioritizing and actioning these improvement projects

Some of the tools and resources we will equip you with include:

  • Days filled with unique and exciting challenges—everyday is different!
  • Advancement opportunities across the organization to help you meet your career goals
  • Appian product training, plus additional training programs to help you develop the skills required to be successful in your role
  • Our team is rapidly growing, and with growth comes opportunity!
  • Unlimited (flex) PTO, hybrid or remote working arrangement, and flexible working hours.  

Basic qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in any Engineering discipline, Computer Science, Information Technology, or similar work experience
  • 1-2+ years experience in a highly technical support role, preferably in a software environment with Java/J2EE troubleshooting experience
  • Fluency or professional proficiency in English and Spanish, experience in providing support to Spanish speaking customers a plus
  • Comfort working in a Linux or Windows CLI environment
  • Passion for problem solving and a talent for identifying creative technical solutions
  • Strong communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Desire to work closely with our customers to help lead continual improvement in the availability, performance, functionality and security of our platform
  • Willing and able to provide after hours support (rotation every 12 or so weeks)

Nice to haves:

  • Programming / scripting (e.g. Java, Perl, Ruby, C#, PHP)
  • RDBMS platforms (e.g. MySql, Oracle, SQL Server)
  • Systems administration (e.g. Linux, Windows)

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
