Job Title: Customer Support Technician/Customer Success Manager

Caption Data is a leading Industrial IoT business delivering solutions to various markets, utilising our own in-house designed and developed hardware and Web Portal. Caption Data is at a point of significant growth opportunity. As a result, we have created this new role. This is a technical & customer-facing role and requires at times a very hands-on approach.

IN THIS ROLE

As examples on any one day, you could be:-

  • Working with field-based staff delivering training and/or assisting with a pilot
  • Developing & running technician training courses for a new corporate user in Europe
  • Problem-solving on installed equipment on a construction site

    About the person we need:

    An IT “savvy” engineer with practical, hands-on experience will be needed. Just as important though are excellent interpersonal skills, sense of purpose, empathy with customers’ staff at all levels, and a large dose of ambition, a can-do attitude, professionalism, and a sense of humour.

    We are a small, dynamic team and the successful candidate must also have the ability to be flexible in their working approach and enjoy the adrenaline of handling multiple client issues/opportunities concurrently.

    More detail about the role:

    • After suitable training, you will become part of the first line of technical support to clients, and after further time on the job and training, you will become the first line of support for field issues and problem-solving.
    • You will particularly engage and support new users [e.g. training their technicians via site visits] to ensure they get the greatest return on their investment and so buy more systems. This will involve travel in both the UK and internationally.
    • Forming close relationships with clients and helping them extract the maximum value from the solution is a key part of this role, this, for example, could include spotting trends or patterns in their data that could lead to significant savings in disruption and value for the end client.
    • You will be involved in developing help files to make the user experience even more satisfying, this will be a mix of traditional documentation, web-based videos, and support platforms. [No web development skills needed as we have this resource already]
    • Installation and commissioning support will be a key part of this role, helping customers/CDL make a success of pilot trials and client deployments.
    • Working with the team, composing SLA agreements, and support processes will be a key part of this role.
