Careers - Technical Applications Consultant

The Technical Applications Consultants at Software Toolbox are a vital part of helping our customers integrate our off-the shelf software solutions into their industrial control systems, and work with a global customer base in every industry; from food & beverage, to renewable energy, to water/waste water, to automotive, power & utilities, oil & gas, and manufacturing. Our customers find us because of our software and reputation and return because of our technical know-how and the high level of service our team provides.

Some are able to join our team directly in this role, depending on their education, skills, and experience. Others start as Associate Consultants and are promoted to this role after a period of time that is as much under their control instead of a set period of time. Typically this role is one achieved after a year of experience in our business. 

Our Technical Application Consultants:

  • Receive customer emails such as “the reason we buy your products is because of the superior support we receive – I can really tell you care about my success and have my back”.
  • Have been shipped a jar of salsa from a food manufacturer that was so delighted with how we helped them with our product.
  • Enjoy working in a casual team environment with daytime, normal work hours. (no mandatory on-call rotation or 24/7 support)
  • Love technology and learning something new every day, in a quickly evolving industry.
  • Wow us (and our customers) with their problem-solving strength, verbal and written communications skills, drive, motivation, and desire to learn.
  • Take pride and are excited to hear the stories of how our software makes every-day products that we all use. Imagine going into a store and picking up a product and knowing “I helped our customer make that, using our software”.

As a Technical Application Consultant, you will:

  • Work with our customers to integrate, configure, and optimize our products; but you won’t have to travel to do it! We built this company on the use of technology for remote work and delight our customers with how we deliver.
  • Troubleshoot, analyze, and resolve problems across a wide range of applications and systems; ranging from the very simple to the true head-scratchers
  • Work with our development teams, partners, and customers to reproduce, isolate, and squash those pesky software bugs when they appear
  • Have a say about what goes into new product releases and the chance to show ownership and pride in our company and product offering.
  • Consult with customers in a pre-sales technical capacity to determine the right product to use to meet their needs so they get the right results the first time.
  • Create application notes, knowledge-base entries, videos, blog posts, and/or technical training curriculums to share your technical expertise with others internally and externally.
  • Mentor and train Associate Consultants sharing your areas of expertise and experience.
