We are looking for anEngineeringSupport Specialistto join our growing Learning & Knowledge Management (LKM) team. The LKM team sits within our Engineering organization & helps empower engineers to work more effectively. The Engineering Support Specialist will assist senior leaders across our Engineering organization, with an emphasis on Learning & Knowledge Management.The Support Specialist will help the Engineering organization run. From coordinating cross-team meetings to keeping engineers in-the-know to booking team building events, this support role will juggle a variety of assignments from multiple Eng leaders.

If you are a self-starter with a bias for action & a passion for helping others, & are undeterred by changing priorities & varying work assignments, then this role may be right for you.

Your Day Might Include:

  • Scheduling meetings including book clubs, tech talks, & Eng-wide updates
  • Keeping engineers informed through a variety of internal communications channels
  • Video recording presentations
  • Contributing to our wiki documentation
  • Meeting with Engineering leaders to identify additional work assignments

  • You enjoy working collaboratively to identify & complete work assignments

If you work best when supporting a single leader or only on one task at a time, then this role probably isnt for you. Were looking for a driven individual who can effectively handle competing requests from several different leaders, some with very short lead times. To be successful, you will need to have a bias for action, be able to prioritize assignments, work well under pressure, & keep stakeholders informed of your progress.
