Software Application Specialist

About Aetopia

Aetopia is a vibrant and expanding software company based in Belfast. We specialise in the development of leading-edge Digital Asset Management solutions (DAM) for a diverse and growing client base. Customers use our software platform to aggregate, store and share all types of digital assets, especially images, video and audio. Our technology stack also includes an Internet of Things (IoT) management framework for a global network of connected digital devices.

The Role

Aetopia is based in Northern Ireland, but our software application specialists can be based anywhere, with hybrid or fully WFH/remote contracts available. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals to quickly use and further improve their Software as a Service (SaaS), customer relationship and business analysis skills in a mentored environment. Reporting directly to the Head of Customer Success, this is a product-oriented role which is focussed on delivering high-quality solutions to delight our customers. Prior experience of digital asset management software is not necessary as on-the-job training will be provided.

The successful candidate will be involved at all stages of the customer project lifecycle; engaging with customers in workshops, writing requirements, working with the engineering team to build software features, hands-on deployment, configuration and testing of working software, and post-delivery support and knowledge transfer. This position will suit anyone with good communication skills who enjoys getting hands-on with software configuration and is flexible enough to take on whatever aspect of the project most needs their input. The vast majority of customer project work will be carried out remotely so travel is rarely required.

Our employees have significant levels of autonomy and get continuous feedback on their work due to our rapid deployment model.
