As a Client Server Software Analyst Lead:

You will be responsible for delivering an end-to-end solution from initial concept through the finished solution in the area of application installation and configurations, deployment, monitoring and server infrastructure.  You’ll need the ability to quickly understand needs, from a user perspective, and move from there to implement a sound solution.  The ability to not only configure tools and applications, but also integrate technology across disparate platforms is critical to success.  This includes a deep understanding of application systems, databases, multiple operating systems as well as other tools that can and should be leveraged to solve problems. You’ll work in an environment where there aren’t always clear specifications or about how something should be done, where it’s up to you to figure things out and keep things moving.  Some other things you’ll do regularly include:

  • Provide deep and detailed levels of monitoring across all levels of the application.         
  • Help mentor other support admins and technical analysts.          Have the ability to work fast, don’t be afraid to break things, and then the troubleshooting know how to fix them.

Who you are…                                                       
You’re someone who wants to influence your own development.  Your skills are broad; user experience, integration, database and application configuration – and you easily transition between those.  You like to leverage modern technology and can quickly adapt to the ever changing types of technology to provide great products to TSYS clients.
