Pivotal Software, Inc. combines platform, tools, and methodology to help the world’s largest companies transform the way they build software and run their most strategic applications. Our technology is used by Global 2000 companies and developers to make software development and IT operations a strategic advantage. Founded in 2013, Pivotal unleashes software-developer productivity and creates an environment for innovation to scale, while fulfilling our mission to transform how the world builds software.

You

You understand enterprise customer expectations of the software support experience, enjoy building relationships and learning your client’s ecosystem, serving as their trusted advisor and liaison, and you judge your success by your customer’s success and happiness. You may never have held the title of Support Engineer; you might have been a senior admin or software developer, or just the person who knows how to fix complex issues and collaborate to prevent future problems while keeping everyone well informed. You thoughtfully assist customers and colleagues by listening, connecting the dots, and documenting the situation and solution. You consult with Pivots in support, development, or escalation engineering as needed to address critical problems that frequently require the development of unique and creative solutions. You are personable, and bring professionalism, intuition, communication and technical agility to your daily interactions. You hold values related to kindness, helpfulness, self-awareness, and continuous learning.

Us

In Pivotal Support, we are passionate about providing our software customers with the highest level of service. We work in small teams around the globe, supporting customers 24x7. We believe in doing the right thing and working at a sustainable pace – typically 8 hours each day with occasional weekend support rotations. We are also passionate about our people, building on individual strengths, and encouraging continuous learning and certifications. And, when you’re off work, we want you to relax, recharge, and refocus.

Your Day

As a Designated Support Engineer, your work day is focused on one client who recognizes and relates to you as their central point of contact for Pivotal product support issues, including proactive technical support, upcoming feature consultation, issue escalation, training recommendations, and communicating procedural and status updates on the customer’s complex and often mission-critical environment. You communicate regularly with your customer and use your knowledge of their architecture to develop support plans, upgrade plans, and status reports recognizing their priorities, challenges, initiatives, and potential areas for improvement. You use your judgment and technical expertise to identify, document, and report issues with design, reliability, and maintenance issues. You act as the customer advocate as you work closely with Pivots in engineering, product management, and other key areas to innovate and improve performance around product requirements, enhancements, process improvements, and industry best practices.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
