VMware (Bangalore, KA, India) 14 days ago

Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

When you start working for VMware in Colleague Experience and Technology team, you will see for yourself that we are passionate learners and creative thinkers, excited about technology, and the impact we can make not only in IT but within everything IT touches. On our team, you will find a foundation to share new ideas, create new solutions, and solve new challenges. Most importantly, you will be working in a leading-edge environment that encourages you to learn, grow, and take risks.

What is the primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem, you will be responsible for? 

Traditional Audio Visual Operations is one firefight after another, where at VMware, we are redefining this reactive response and morphing into a proactive engagement model that prevents these fires from ever starting. As part of this transformation, you will work on some of our toughest technology challenges, partner with some of the industries brightest minds and get hands-on with new and emerging technologies. Many of these solutions will involve developing new proactive tools, programs, and processes. At VMware, our goal isn't just fixing problems, we endeavor to find new and better ways of enabling our Colleague to do their best work.

Success in the Role: What are the performance goals over the first 6 months you will work toward completing? 

Within 30 days you will start looking after all the event spaces and meeting rooms across India at a 95% positive satisfaction rate. As you approach 60 days, you will have the insight to name 2 team improvement areas (process, tools, systems, automation opportunities) and present ideas for making those improvements. At 90 days be able to work autonomously on more advanced break/fix issues. Within 180 days take ownership of an internal team project to drive that project to completion.

Some project examples are:

  • Develop a proactive notification tool to inform colleagues in advance if one or more functions at meeting rooms are not working.
  • Partner with other teams to co-develop and test an advance monitoring solution. This could involve automation, scripting, image creation etc.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing regularly? 

Initially, you will spend time learning our internal processes and tools and then use your skills to discover the cause of reported issues and problems. This may involve solving individual issues in the short term while looking for opportunities to give automated fixes and solutions to ongoing and large-scale issues. This work requires frequent and consistent collaboration with other teams and individuals over email, chat and video calls.

Also, you will look after the mid & large scale event support request to delivery it end to end.

What is the leadership team like for this role? What are the structure and culture of the team?

He built his expertise from working the front lines with roles involving ticket routing, desktop support for R&D and corporate staff, executive support, project management, Audio Visuals and most recently one of the manager of our India colleague support team.
