As the Information Company, our mission at OpenText is to create software solutions and deliver services that redefine the future of digital. Be part of a winning team that leads the way in Enterprise Information Management. 

The opportunity:


The OpenText Covisint technical support team is searching for a motivated, analytical, customer-centric individual committed to providing exceptional customer support. The right candidate will have a blend of customer support and technical troubleshooting skills.

You’ll be part of a tier 2 Advanced Resolution team supporting European and North American clients using the OpenText Identity Management, Supplier Portal and ProviderLink Healthcare solutions. You will be supporting customers using OpenText IAM as to the provision and manage identities. You’ll respond to incoming telephone calls, support emails, online tickets and chat sessions as well as escalations from the tier 1 team.

In addition to customer technical support activities, you’ll create documentation, author KB articles, and participate in developing processes/procedures.


You are great at:


  • Making customers happy – you take satisfaction in developing rapport and resolving issues. You want to be more than just a voice answering a phone, you want to be the face of a business. You create value for your company with every customer interaction.
  • Listening- You listen for clues to determine what customer needs rather than wants, even if the customer can’t articulate their needs succinctly.
  • Troubleshooting- you methodically ask the right questions to pare down possible problems and find the right actions to resolve the issue.
  • Independent work- you are a self-starter. You can use product knowledge and experience to extrapolate solutions to complex problems.
  • Multitasking- you can prioritize and swivel between tasks to manage high-priority requests quickly.
  • Learning – you are inquisitive and motivated to learn not just basics, but why and how the solutions work, so you can transmute that knowledge into solutions for the customer.
  • Collaboration – you love to share what you know and learn from your teammates. You will reach out to form bonds with your team, whether they are sitting next to you or halfway around the world. You may be the only person doing your job on-site, so you’ll have to work virtually with teammates in the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany, and the Philippines.
  • Using good judgment- you use good judgment to apply product knowledge, process knowledge, and policy. You can recognize what is important, why it’s critical, and when to escalate priority problems.


What it takes:


  • 1-3 years previous experience working in a customer support environment
  • Basic Linux knowledge and system administration experience
  • Understanding of REST APIs and API Gateway
  • Experience using Postman or other troubleshooting tools
  • Basic understanding of microservice architecture
  • Basic SQL experience
  • Understanding of and experience with SSO, SAML, and OAUTH
