The Latitude Geographics product support team is a group of highly specialized analysts who provide support, informed advice, and insight for Web-based Mapping applications to our clients and partners around the world. 

This challenging role involves a low volume of requests per day (approximately 10-20). Resolution involves technical and often complicated solutions that require research, code analysis, scripting and/or lengthy remote support sessions with our highly skilled customers.

Responsibilities:

  • Provide world-class support services to our diverse and highly skilled customer base; from GIS professionals, to IT experts.
  • Work directly with our customers and partners, via phone and email, to troubleshoot and resolve issues related to a Geocortex implementation and the prerequisite infrastructure; such as Latitude Geographics’ Geocortex products (customized or out-of-the-box), Esri products (e.g. ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Online) and other third party software.
  • Provide consulting to customers on how best to achieve their goals with Geocortex.  This includes analysis and implementation of their requirements.
  • Track and manage support activities using Salesforce.com.
  • Actively participate with customers via our online Geocortex Support Center. Contribute to our forums, knowledge base and code gallery to foster a vibrant online community.
  • Work with the Development and Quality Assurance teams to advocate on behalf of our customers.
  • Perform other duties and special projects as required.

Requirements:

  • Enthusiasm and a passion for technology; with an eagerness to solve complex software issues.
  • A genuine dedication to customer care/service.
  • Excellent technical and logical troubleshooting skills.
  • Minimum two years of experience providing remote software support for an integrated enterprise level software solution.
  • Experience with many of these technologies: Esri’s ArcGIS product suite, JIRA, Salesforce, C#, .NET, JavaScript, Silverlight, HTML5, Python, LAN/WAN, Proxies, Firewalls and CSS.
  • Exceptional communication skills (both written and verbal).
  • Practical experience with Microsoft Windows Server, IIS, and SQL Server.
  • Aptitude for learning new technologies with minimal supervision.
  • Post-secondary background in computer science or equivalent experience.

Would love to see:

  • Experience supporting a web-based software application suite.
  • A clear understanding of GIS and cartographic theory and related applications.
  • Proficiency in multiple languages.
