Provides accurate, timely technical support to Open Text Actuate Software customers developers, system administrators and other technical contacts primarily via the telephone and E-mail.

The callers will expect enterprise-level support, therefore the Engineer Specialist will need to be well-versed technically, and fully understand customer service concepts. Other objectives are to contribute to the development of the automated, self-help tools; to collect and report upon information gathered from incidents; and to interface with Sales, Marketing, QA/Test and others as necessary. In addition, a Customer Support Engineer will carry out projects as assigned by the management staff, cooperate with other Customer Support Product Engineer Specialists in carrying out their day-to-day duties, and represent Open Text Actuate Software in a visibly supportive manner.
