This position involves helping highly technical customers (software engineers) who use the company's software and integrate open source notifier libraries into their applications so you, yourself need to be highly technical.

You should be enthusiastic about working for a small, dynamic company and motivated by solving a challenging and extensive range of very technical and less technical problems. You should be keen to take on new challenges and learn new technologies and skills. They are big believers in open source libraries so you can pick up a lot of skills!!
