Lead IT Support Analyst

G&A Chicago, Illinois


About The Glassdoor Information Technology team

We are a small but potent group of dedicated, creative, fun, and customer-focused professionals who have a reputation for meeting challenges head-on and catalyzing positive change throughout the organization. We are tight-knit, collaborative, and heavily invested in each other's success and development. As a team, we rally around our mission to deliver an exceptional experience for our customers who trust and rely on us.

About you in this role

We are looking for a Lead Support Analyst to own the support experience at our Chicago location. In this role, you will work closely with our IT Operations team and local leadership to identify trends, remediate issues, triage support requests, and drive continual improvement of employee-facing technology. You are highly technical with strong problem-solving discipline. You might not have every answer at the ready, but your curiosity, tenacity, and insatiable thirst for knowledge lead you to resolution every time. You have a low tolerance for fixing the same problem repeatedly. Instead, you prefer to spend your energy understanding why, and preventing it from happening in the future.

Being geographically separate from the core of our team will require you to be comfortable working with limited instruction and capable of prioritizing issues and tasks on the fly. Our engineering and support teams will be looking to you for precise and timely feedback regarding high-impact issues and incidents.

Using your exceptional people skills, you will become a keystone of Glassdoor culture by collaborating with our business partners to understand emerging needs and opportunities for improving employee experience and translating interactions into meaningful action. You are passionate about helping people and building relationships with customers, peers, and leaders. We will rely on you to represent our values and mission, and to act as an accelerant for the success of our team in Chicago.
