CEAD is looking for a:

Customer Support Engineer

The Customer Support department has four major responsibilities within CEAD: providing training on CEADʼs products, supporting customers with issues and questions, increasing uptime of CEAD products by ensuring that adequate maintenance is executed and making sure that user documentation is up to date to the latest specs. The responsibility of the Customer Support Engineer starts when a product is delivered or installed at the customer: the installation/delivery, you are the link between CEAD and the customer.

With continuously improving products it is very important that all customer documentation (like manuals or training) remain up to date. The Customer Support team makes sure of this task. The documentation needs to comply with the latest updates of regulations as the Machine Directive and all other applicable regulations and standards that are applicable on CEADʼs products.

Within CEAD, the Customer Support Engineer has frequent contact with product owners regarding required changes in documentation and exchanging customer feedback. If expert knowledge is necessary for a request or issue, the soware team and engineering are consulted. If maintenance needs to be executed the Customer Support Engineer will be in charge in preparing the work to be executed. Together with the production manager, the Customer Support Engineer makes sure that Field Service Engineers are available to execute this maintenance.

As a Customer Support Engineer you become the main contact for our customer, whether they need maintenance or repairs, training for new personnel or help with their designs and products to be able to print them using their CEAD equipment. Therefore the role is not only deep technical, but also very people oriented. In the end, you are responsible for our customers’ success.

Travelling to a customer is not uncommon. For example, aer an installation to provide training, but also to execute preventive or corrective maintenance from time to time. Keeping close contact with our existing customers is important. This ensures we receive feedback from the delivered products, and can also lead to the sale of an extra system, upgrades, or spare part packages.

One day can look completely different from the next. Your day-to-day activities partly depend on the questions that come from customers. Flexibility, planning well, and asking for help at the right times are important skills to have.
