Configuration Specialist


Are you looking for a career in the technology field? Perhaps a change of pace from what you’re currently doing? Join our team at Agate Software! A Configuration Specialist is a great way to get acclimated to building user interfaces and the software development life cycle as a whole. Many people who have been hired as Configuration Specialist go on to become project leads, if they enjoy talking with clients or if their interest lies more in the technical realm others have gone on to become software developers for us over time.

The successful person for this role will have ability to take direction from their direct supervisor, respond to assigned tasks, and have a desire to be a well-rounded individual in terms of skill set. Person will work with a team of others on a project(s), following standards already in place for the application and development of system functionality.

Configuration Specialists typically complete a lot of form builds (using a suite of tools within our proprietary software), write error checks, test work for accuracy and that work meets design requirements. Configuration Specialists may also be required to work on Agate Software’s help desk, fielding calls from system users and assisting them.
