About the role

We're looking for a German Technical Support Team Lead (DE) to join our Support team. To be successful in this role you should be passionate about providing a high level of technical support for Charging Stations across a wide array of complex issues across our AC product line. You should be able to reliably deliver results and ensure proper support and development of our partners' technical competencies, providing the right level of visibility on support issues and resolution time. This can be primarily a remote job (90%), with some travel needed to our offices (10%). If you prefer to go into the office more, that is up to you.

You will be part of the Global Second Line Support team that is responsible for supporting questions raised by our suppliers and installation partners. You will be overseeing our German Technical Support team, which is responsible for resolving complex issues, escalating the issues with proper documentation to our L3 teams and coordinating corrective and preventive action plans with the L3 Engineering team.

Main responsibilities:

  • Motivate, coach, inspire, train and manage our Technical Support German speaking team
  • Track concerns and tasks, and follow up on tickets in the available incident management system (Salesforce)
  • Assure that key escalations resolved
  • Perform root cause analysis on new issues faced
  • Perform deep analyses of technical inquiries and provide feedback on hardware and firmware development
  • Ensure proper escalation of issues and follow up
  • Ensure that technical incidents are properly documented and followed-up on, including providing feedback to the relevant teams internally (i.e. Quality, Supply Chain, L3 Support, Project Management, Training and Knowledge Management)
  • Ensure that the team develops a deep technical understanding of the product and its lifecycle
  • Provide detailed statistical feedback on performance
  • Ensure the right coverage is available to manage workload according to our KPIs

You'll be leaving your mark in this important field for a sustainable future.

Experience that will really complement our team:

  • Bachelor's degree in a technical field (electrical engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering or similar)
  • Fluency in German and English is required. Extra European languages (Dutch, French, Norwegian, Spanish) are always great!
  • At least 5 years of work experience in (technical) support roles (ideally within technology / energy / electrical / automotive companies)
  • Some experience as a Team-lead is nice to have but you can compensate for that with solid technical skills and lots of motivation.
  • Some experience working with hardware
  • Any experience with cloud connected embedded systems, or programming / scripting languages (i.e. embedded C, JSON, XML) is advantageous (but not mandatory)
  • Good understanding of customer support / call center operations (telephony, case management tools and processes)
  • Previous experience with ticketing systems is a must (e.g. Salesforce)
  • Strong attention to detail and commitment to quality
  • Strong customer-centric mindset, willingness to help others
  • Ability to influence and empathize with remote teams
  • Excellent verbal and written English

Benefits we bring to the table

  • Competitive salary ... meaning, we expect we'll offer a salary around the 60,000 euro mark, but we don't rule anyone in or out based on salary. Please, if you think you are the right person for the role, get in touch.
  • Flexible working patterns
  • Private pension contribution
  • 25 vacation days
  • Holiday Swap (2 days)
  • Access to learning platforms and personal development budget
  • Home office budget
