Do you get a kick out of automating the un-automatable?
When someone says, “I can’t figure this out,” do lean forward, eager to help?
Do you love solving customer issues?
As a Support Developer, you will bridge the support and development teams. You will work closely with support and help them to get what they need from the development team. Many times you will solve their problems yourself and sometimes you will escalate the problems to others. You will code about 40% of your time, designing tools for the support team, as well as handling projects, backlogs and defects.
