Keynote DeviceAnywhere is looking for responsible, motivated, organized, logical and analytical people to join our company as Mobile Monitoring & Support Specialists. The Keynote DeviceAnywhere (KDA) platform infrastructure is distributed across multiple data centers in the North America, Europe, and Asia (and continues to grow). In these data centers are thousands of phones that we monitor and care for to assure that they are available and operating properly for our customers to perform their mobile application monitoring and testing.
Our Mobile Monitoring & Device Support Specialists create the scripts that (among other things) monitor and clean our devices using our own GUI based tools. In addition to creating the scripts, our specialists are also responsible for maintaining the scripts over the lifetime of the device, and will also be expected to help remediate and/or escalate issues to other teams when device issues are identified.
Development of the scripts that monitor and care for our devices does not require any prior experience with scripting languages, as our scripts will be built using a GUI.
This position also requires an extremely logical, intuitive, tech-savvy and persistent person who enjoys the challenge of solving the puzzles that are presented as new mobile devices are released and need to be scripted.
Successful scripters will have the opportunity to work directly with our most valuable customers as a part of the delivery team for their internal test and monitoring scripts, therefore candidates are required to have strong written and verbal communication skills.
