Client Support Specialist

What does your typical day look like?

As a product liaison, I get to communicate between teams and clients to assemble creative and efficient solutions fit for our users’ needs. My day is spent being curious while collecting a deep understanding of a someone’s issue or request and being creative while collaborating with engineers or client services to develop solutions.

How does the company support your career growth?

From the beginning of my time here, I’ve heard the phrase “Right people in the right seat”. It is such a simple phrase but it acts more like a promise that the leaders at Medtelligent will always be cognizant of the professional goals, passions, interests and potential. They will support their employees in whatever direction they choose.
