Application Engineer (x2)
Do you enjoy investigating and solving technical issues, working with innovative technologies and providing expert technical help and support? If so, our Kineo team in Brighton may be the perfect opportunity for you.
We are looking for someone with drive and an aptitude to learn and succeed; both will be paramount to your position within our highly motivated team - we pride ourselves on the first-class service we offer our customers.
About the role
Day-to-day you’ll be providing clients and internal teams with high quality technical support, in line with strict service level agreements focusing on Totara Learning Management Systems.
You will take a proactive approach towards the correct implementation of process and security controls, ensuring the stability and effectiveness of sites we manage. You will fulfil a key role that will help place Kineo as the preferred choice for global Totara hosting and support.
You’ll be joining a friendly team, working out of our Brighton HQ in close collaboration with our Sales, Learning Content and Learning Platforms teams.
We are looking for someone with drive and an aptitude to learn and succeed; both will be paramount to your position within our highly motivated team. You should have a passion for IT and providing excellent customer support and you'll need to be able to demonstrate sound experience of working with clients in a fast-paced environment and strong customer service focus and mentality.
You must be able to manage your time and work priorities, whilst under pressure and you must have a logical approach to identifying and solving technical problems.
Though not essential, it would be great if you already had experience working with source control such as GIT or SVN, as well as Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and Content Management Systems (CMSs). Experience in writing queries to obtain and update data within MySQL and PostgreSQL databases would be helpful as well, as would working in a support desk environment to strict SLAs.
Our story and mission
Our vision is for a world in which everyone has the skills and opportunities to succeed. We support almost five million people each year to develop skills that help them into a job, develop on that job and to prepare for their next job. As a charity, we’re proud that everything we do is focused on achieving this purpose.
Through our assessment and credentialing, corporate learning and technical training offers, we partner with our customers to deliver work-based learning programmes that build competency to support better prospects for people, organisations and wider society. We create flexible learning pathways that support lifelong employability, because we believe that people deserve the opportunity to (re)train and (re)learn again and again – gaining new skills at every stage of life, regardless of where they start.
At the heart of our business sits the City & Guilds Foundation which amplifies our purpose by helping to remove barriers to getting into a job, celebrating best practice on the job, and advocating for jobs of the future.
We were founded in 1878 by the City of London and the trade guilds of the time, to help people, organisations and economies to develop their skills for growth.
Our rich experience means we’re uniquely positioned to understand the future of work and learning. And, we continually evolve to develop and deliver skills for the workplace of the future. Today, as well as qualifications and assessment, we offer digital credentialing, elearning technologies, executive leadership development, technical training and consultancy.
Our success is driven by the people we work with. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer an equal opportunity to all our staff and we value diversity within our inclusive culture. We recognise that a diverse workforce is the only way we will achieve our ambitious business goals, so we work hard to be flexible to accommodate everyone.
What we offer
We offer the opportunity to work in an innovative, engaging and market-leading organisation with opportunities to develop your existing skills and explore new ones.
You’ll receive an excellent benefits package which typically includes a great base salary, 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, pension, private healthcare, volunteering opportunities and much more.
We welcome a discussion about how this role could work flexibly for you. For example work pattern, hours or location.
