Job Description:

Our customers’ satisfaction with our service is a critical part of WideOrbit’s success. When our customers have a technically complex situation that can’t be solved with our first line of support, they depend on our talented Development Support team.  As a Development Support Engineer, you’ll be the bridge between our non-technical customers and our highly skilled Development team.

If you’re a fearless learner and a puzzle solver who is comfortable working in the unknown, then this could be an excellent opportunity for you. Additionally, if you’re looking to leverage and grow your technical and interpersonal skills and you might have an interest in software development in the future, this role can take you in that direction.

 

Here is what you’ll be doing:

  • Providing customized and often complex Transact SQL (T-SQL) script deliverables to resolve data issues
  • Responding to all issues with clear communication, technical creativity and a commitment to problem resolution
  • Stepping through our product’s source code to identify application behavior and defects
  • Collaborating with various internal departments in determining root causes, and recommending solutions
  • Partnering with our Development team to aid in solving complicated issues with the application and/or database
  • Contributing to knowledge base content, including but not limited to articles, guides, documentation and training material
  • Recommending new technology and improvements to streamline Development Support processes
  • Communicating with Account Managers and other department personnel to understand customer needs
  • Be available to complete urgent customer requests during off-hours when on-call

 

Here is what we’re looking for:

  • Advanced T-SQL scripting is required
  • Strong Microsoft SQL Server database knowledge is required
  • Experience working for a software company in application support or development role
  • Experience with scripting languages such as Windows PowerShell is highly preferred
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, with a proven track record of establishing credibility and professional relationships with key customers (internal and external)
  • Proven ability to engage quickly and drive resolutions
  • Adept at communicating in small groups of people with disparate technological capabilities and understandings
  • Confident, professional, and effective communicator (both verbally and in written form) that can work with all levels and departments in the organization
  • Willingness to readily adjust to new demands, requirements, or directions, and the ability to shift priorities when necessary
  • Ability to work effectively under pressure and balance competing tasks in a rapidly changing environment

 

Location:

This position will be based in our San Francisco, CA or our Lynnwood, WA (Seattle area) office.  

 

Compensation, Benefits and Perks:

Besides a great work environment with smart and friendly coworkers, access to leadership and knowledge about how your work impacts company success, here are some of our benefits and perks:

A competitive salary, health insurance, sabbatical leaves, great vacation package, work/life balance, life event benefits, casual work attire, stocked café, 401(k) match, and plenty of opportunities to grow!

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.
