Are you a junior Linux systems administrator with a passion for technology? Are you skilled in both hardware and software? Are you great at turning fails into epic wins? Do you know who Afro Ninja is? If so, our On-Premise support team is looking for you.
Rally Support isn’t your typical technical support job. This isn’t a call center or “cube farm”. We are a collection of skilled specialists focused on problem resolution, customer education, and product innovation. In addition to Rally’s unmatched corporate values, our group’s vision is proof of this focus –
We serve as the face of Rally Software to our customers through professionalism, courtesy, and consistent messaging.
We believe in support that goes above and beyond traditional call-and-respond models, focusing instead on overall customer success.
We act as the voice and primary advocate for the Rally On-Premise customer base by contributing to new feature decisions and collaborating with development teams. On-premises software is installed and run on computers on the premises (in the building) of the person or organization using the software, rather than at a remote facility, such as at a server farm or cloud somewhere on the internet. On-premises software is sometimes referred to as "shrinkwrap" software or on-demand software, and off-premises software is commonly called "software as a service" or "computing in the cloud."
And we have a lot of fun!
