The impact you can have

Joining our Support team means on daily basis:

  • Helping customers integrate our solutions from developer IDE till the Continuous Integration chain. Both from a software lifecycle perspective (SCM, build, test) and from a business application perspective (authentication, database etc.)
  • Driving technical issues to resolution: from qualifying the issue, to reproducing it and conducting an in-depth technical investigation (being in touch with the customer and managing his expectations all along the way)
  • Collaborating with SonarSource Sales and Consulting teams to support the adoption and deployment of SonarSource solutions
  • Bringing together customers feedback and SonarSource product evolutions
  • Having a voice in enhancing the way we work

The skills you will demonstrate

  • Software engineering best practices, with at least 3-5 years of experience in maintaining and delivering high-quality software
  • Experience with common software engineering tools: SCM (e.g. Git, SVN), IDE (e.g. IntelliJ, VisualStudio), CI (e.g. Jenkins, VSTS). More than acronyms, they are tools that our customers use and that our products integrate with.
  • Experience with system-wide deployments. Because sometimes an issue is not caused by the application itself, but by the network, the underlying server, the database or else
  • Investigation skills to understand problems in their context and to ability to reproduce them
  • Team player, receiving and giving feedback as well as sharing knowledge
  • Can-do attitude: challenging status-quo, leading and contributing to key improvements and innovations
