Job Summary

At xTuple, we develop software solutions to help growing manufacturers with inventory management, processing sales and work orders, and streamlining their accounting processes — all in one system. We’re serious about the success of our customers and have aligned our teams to ensure users have a first-class experience that positions them for growth.

The xTuple Customer Success team needs an eager, customer-centric Technical Support Analyst (TSA) to provide courteous and prompt technical assistance to customers via phone, email, chat, and web conference.
