Support Engineers serve as the first point of contact for Microsoft’s customers and partners via phone, email or web. They deliver unique value by collaboratively and reactively solving customer problems, providing proactive support advice, contributing to product quality and enhancements and creating self-help assets to broadly reach more customers.


Technical Account Manager  

A Technical account manager (TAM) is a trusted business advisor to Microsoft's customers paying for our support services. By maintaining a long-term relationship with customers, you will gain a thorough understanding of the organization's IT goals, pain points, and the IT team's impact on overall business.

Our consultants evaluate, design, and implement enterprise infrastructures and IT business solutions, often working on-site to help customers with implementation and deployment of different projects. This role requires a breadth of technology knowledge and the ability to implement and articulate a solution by mapping a customer's business problems to a technology solution.


Support Engineer  

Using technical expertise and excellent communication skills, support professionals are called upon to fix real time issues, collaborating directly with the customers and other support professionals to help customers solve business problems.
