At GOSS our mission is to ensure our clients maximise their online potential.  We do this by harnessing the best internet technologies to deliver innovative solutions that enhance customer experience, reduce costs, and provide a competitive advantage. To do this we have to stay on the leading edge of technology and innovation.

The GOSS Digital Platform helps to drive digital transformation within a wide range of public and private sector organisations across the UK, and each week more than 3 million people experience our work. Building software at scale is fun, challenging and changing constantly. We have helped our clients deliver new online services to their citizens including ferry disruptions, improved waste collection solutions as well complex integration into various 3rd party systems.

We are looking for a full time experienced Application Support Technician to join our relaxed and friendly team based in Plymouth.


As a GOSS Application Support Technician, you will join the team either from home or in our large open plan Plymouth office and will work as part of the Client Support Team. You will be one of the main points of contact for our clients and their users, handling support and training queries relating to the GOSS Digital Platform. You will bring support desk expertise to the team, working closely with others to provide fast resolutions to issues as well as suggestions on how our clients can fully utilise the Platform. You will also work closely with our operational team which includes Project Managers, Sales and Software Developers.


You will have extensive experience of working in a busy IT support environment, will have a good understanding of IT & digital services and can quickly get up to speed with our products and services. You can use a variety of tools to quickly diagnose and resolve issues and can communicate with the client using appropriate tone and language.

You will have experience of working towards SLAs and understand the pressures of a busy IT service desk. You work well within a team but can competently work alone to ensure SLAs and deadlines are met. You are enthusiastic about technology and take pride in delivering work of a high quality.  You are adaptable and flexible and willing to do extra where needed to ensure client satisfaction levels are high.
