Redgate is looking for a passionate and talented person to lead our UK Technical Support team and provide exceptional customer support for users of Redgate tools.

You’ll play a vital role in the team; every day you and your team will help customers to solve their technical problems by performing remote screen share sessions or working with them via phone and email to gather important details about their issue. You’ll also champion our products, provide our product development teams with customer feedback and help your colleagues to understand the technical concepts behind the tools.

You will be leading a team of 5-6 support engineers, carrying out monthly one to ones, coaching, training and giving feedback consistently. You will be responsible for the motivation and development of your team, as well as the measuring of their performance.

The role is challenging and diverse, and to keep you at the top of your game we’ll invest in you and your career, providing all the training and support you’ll need to achieve great work.

We very much look forward to hearing from you!
