What are we looking for?

We’re expanding our team of Customer Service Technicians who are trained to build, setup, and debug our hardware devices. These professionals receive ongoing training across all technical departments such as electronics, mechanical, firmware, and software. These team members are hands-on power-users who deal directly with our clients and partners either to install and debug devices but also to train outsourced professionals who will become independent technicians themselves. They are also the main contact point with our clients so they are excellent communicators. Our Technicians spend half of their time in our office in Porto and the other half traveling around the globe and visiting our customers in Turkey, Italy, Germany and so on, that is why they speak fluent English and sometimes other languages. As a Smartex Technician, you will be asked to translate complex technical matters to simple and concise terms on a daily basis.
