Marketing Software Support Specialist
The function of the Marketing Software Support Specialist is to manage customers' technical issues submitted through ZenDesk - an industry standard in managing the support ticketing process. The SS ensures an excellent standard of service and high customer satisfaction levels are maintained at all times. The SS works closely with the following units:

The ideal candidate will be able to take on a vague issue raised by a customer and figure out a path to solve the customer's problem, while maintaining a continuous line of communication with all internal and external stakeholders.
