The Infrastructure Team is expanding! Are you a technical person who loves working directly with customers? I am looking to hire two new Product Support Specialists to join our team.
The first is located on the west coast with a strong Geospatial background and advanced knowledge of AutoCAD Map 3D and/or Mapguide. The second is located in Brazil, requiring a high-level knowledge of AutoCAD Civil 3D. Fluent in Brazilian-Portuguese is a must.
