Are you an exceptional communicator and problem solver who would like to be part of a technology company that changes how software is created all around the world? We are looking to hire an Application Support Technician to help our customers use our products successfully.If the following job requirements and experience match your skills, please ensure you apply promptly.While we are small company with a start-up culture, we have significant growths plans and these won’t succeed without strong customer support service. You will have broad responsibility for helping our technical customers to successfully adopt our product to the point where they are using it on a daily basis. You will also work with our existing customers to help them adopt new product functionality.Who are we?We build tools for the software development teams at Starbucks, NewBalance, Qantas and many other companies. It’s our mission to help eliminate the phrase “That’s not what I wanted” from software projects. This misunderstanding in project requirements causes unnecessary costs and delays from ‘rework’ to correct the mistakes, and we help companies eliminate this with a technique called Behaviour Driven Development (BDD).Culture and values are key to us as a company. A core company value at Hindsight is ‘work as a team, with balance and no ego,’ this means we take people’s well-being seriously. Unlike many large corporates and unicorn-start-ups we don’t expect people to work overtime every day, in fact, overtime rarely occurs at all.Long, tedious commutes do not provide the basis for a good work/life balance. This is why we have chosen to base our office in Epsom, Surrey rather than London, and offer hybrid working where you choose a blend of remote working and time in the office. Office attendance will be mandatory during your induction period. We are interested in people who can work as part of a team and bring value to our company, but don’t want to coast through life. At Hindsight, we strongly believe in work-life balance, therefore we are looking for someone who can switch off at the end of the working day.Your covering letter is an opportunity to differentiate yourself and stand out from the crowd.Duties & Responsibilities
