You’ll be providing support on all technical problems within your own area of expertise. Your responsibilities will range from resolving customer queries to diagnosing complex technical problems.

  • Implement solutions and provide product-related consulting or trainings at customer sites

Apart from the pleasant work environment at the client, and the expertise from which you can undoubtedly learn a lot, here’s what you can expect from us:

  • You’ll join an awesome community and enter one of our Smart Programs, based on where you are in your career and where you want to go. Did we mention you’ll get a personal coach as well?
  • Next to a generous monthly salary (€2700-€3100/month), you'll receive a company car or a flexible mobility budget and tons of other benefits (pension, daily compensations, etc.)
  • You’ll spend most of the time at (y)our client’s, except for regular Exellys trainings, fun events, tribe meet-ups, after works, knowledge sharing sessions, etc.
  • After two years of coaching and upskilling from Exellys, you’ll get the opportunity to join (y)our client’s organization as an internal employee. Or if you prefer to stay with us, you could explore our follow-up Smart Programs as well.
