Tier II Support Engineer

Vail Systems, Inc. Company Profile:
The human voice is capable of conveying nuances and meaning that just can't be expressed through clicks and text messages. And for that reason, voice interactions have always had a special power to shape our perceptions and experiences. At Vail, we believe in the unique power of voice interactions to create more expressive, more intimate, and more efficient interpersonal interactions. Our experts work with Fortune 500 companies to help them serve their customers more efficiently and effectively through the use of various voice technologies. From basic network services, to state-of-the-art IP telephony, to cutting edge real-time analytics, Vail's technology makes millions of voice interactions better every day.

Job Purpose
Our state of the art voice technology requires integration of platform components running on highly available, low latency systems and network that support VoIP signaling and media, real-time analytics, and data connections to carriers, contact centers, and customer backend resources. Systems and network play key roles in delivering the benefits of Vail's voice platform solutions to its customers. As a Tier II Engineer at Vail, you'll be responsible for the voice platform and supporting systems and will work in a highly technical environment alongside software developers, systems integrators, and network engineers in designing, maintaining, and delivering solutions.
