Job Description

Do you love technology and interacting with people? Do you want to be part of a fast growing, diverse team delivering superb levels of service to our clients? Do you want to contribute to a low carbon future?

At Guru Systems you can be part of a world class team developing technology that is radically reducing carbon emissions; making energy systems more transparent and lower cost for society. 

Delivering low-carbon heat is one of the biggest challenges in the transition to a net-zero emissions future. Our technology helps to accelerate this transition by using AI-driven analytics to improve efficiency and change the future of heat for the better.

The opportunity

This role sits at the intersection of client relationships and technology. Your mission is to support Guru's clients, manage incoming support tickets and coordinate responses to ensure Guru is able to deliver a high standard of service at all times. Doing your job well is crucial to Guru’s business: the better our teams can support our clients, the more successful the company will be.

About the role

Guru has two software platforms Guru Pay and Guru Pinpoint, which take data from our hardware, with new products and services coming on stream in 2021. As Guru’s first line of support for our clients, typically heat metering and billing companies or on-site engineers, you will triage all support tickets relating to our hardware and software applications. You will be responding directly to routine matters and directing to second line support as needed. You will ensure all tickets are responded to within agreed service level agreements. 

Your primary aim will be to reduce the volume of support by maintaining Guru’s Help Centre, escalating bugs and feature requests appropriately, identifying client training and process enhancement needs. You will report on progress against support targets monthly.
