At Security Compass we work hard to help developers write secure code. Our product, SD Elements, is the world’s premier security requirements tool.

You will have the chance to create a positive impact on the security of systems that affect us all every single day – health, financial, infrastructure, and more.

SD Elements is looking to recruit a technical individual with strong communication and organizational skills for a technical support role. This technical support role is uniquely different as it deals with mostly higher tier support challenges and the role has potential to advance into DevOps and/or Development roles.

  • Respond to incoming technical support questions via Email / Zendesk
  • Keep track of support requests and engage various resources from engineering teams  as needed
  • Troubleshoot normal (Tier 1 and Tier 2) support cases and gather the preliminary data needed for troubleshooting Tier 3 support cases
  • Maintain documentation and the self-help portal
  • Basic management of the SaaS servers, including coordinating releases and sending updates to customers
  • Setup and coordinate troubleshooting calls (WebEx) with clients and walk them through the processes

Note: This position has the potential to advance to DevOps, Sales Engineer (post-sales) or Development roles.

  • Understanding of IT environment and basics of IT Security
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Strong troubleshooting skills
  • Capability to understand complex software and scripts and the mechanisms behind them
