VMware Designated Support Engineer - (VMware Tanzu) in Denver, Colorado

VMware Tanzu Designated Support Engineer

About Us

Ready to build? So are we. Come join VMware’s new exciting Modern Applications Business Unit (MAPBU) team, made up of products and services under the Tanzu portfolio to help customers build, run and manage their most important applications. We build applications with velocity to run in a cloud-native environment, run open-source Kubernetes with consistency, and manage our customers' entire footprint with confidence to help them achieve their business outcomes.

You

You understand enterprise customer expectations of the software support experience, enjoy building relationships and learning your client’s ecosystem, serving as their trusted advisor and liaison, and you judge your success by your customer’s success and happiness. You may never have held the title of Support Engineer; you might have been a senior admin or software developer, or just the person who knows how to fix complex issues and collaborate to prevent future problems while keeping everyone well informed. You thoughtfully assist customers and colleagues by listening, connecting the dots, and documenting the situation and solution. You consult with VMware MAPBU support, development, or escalation engineering as needed to address critical problems that frequently require the development of unique and creative solutions. You are personable, and bring professionalism, intuition, communication and technical agility to your daily interactions. You hold values related to kindness, helpfulness, self-awareness, and continuous learning.

Us

In VMware MAPBU, we are passionate about providing our software customers with the highest level of service. We work in small teams around the globe, supporting customers 24x7. We believe in doing the right thing and working at a sustainable pace – typically 8 hours each day with occasional weekend support rotations. We are also passionate about our people, building on individual strengths, and encouraging continuous learning and certifications. And, when you’re off work, we want you to relax, recharge, and refocus.

Your Day

As a Designated Support Engineer, your work day is focused on a small number of clients who recognize and relate to you as their central point of contact for VMware Tanzu product support issues, including proactive technical support, upcoming feature consultation, issue escalation, training recommendations, and communicating procedural and status updates on the customer’s complex and often mission-critical environment. You communicate regularly with customers and use your knowledge of their architecture to develop support plans, upgrade plans, and status reports recognizing their priorities, challenges, initiatives, and potential areas for improvement. You use your judgment and technical expertise to identify, document, and report issues with design, reliability, and maintenance issues. You act as the customer advocate as you work closely with engineering, product management, and other key areas to innovate and improve performance around product requirements, enhancements, process improvements, and industry best practices.
