Senior Application Support Engineer

Lehi, United States

We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 

The Application Support team provides technical support to our customer and partner-facing teams. The team’s operational duties include addressing questions and problems, assisting in execution of backend changes, coordinating change & release processes, identifying issues for escalation to development teams, and coordinating multi-team efforts in order to remediate issues. Additionally, the team uses its unique perspective of the operational patterns of our products to continuously improve Collective Health’s services and ensure that we pay off technical debt and push for greater automation and reliability.

The Senior Application Support Engineer’s responsibilities are divided between providing day-to-day operational support, and leading and executing projects.
