Organizational Context:
With its 192 member countries, the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a specialized agency of the United Nations, is the primary forum for cooperation between postal sector players. It helps to ensure a truly universal network of up-to-date products and services.
The Postal sector has been faced with far-reaching changes over the past few years. It has become essential for Posts to apply the latest technology in order to respond effectively to changing customer needs. The Postal Technology Centre (PTC) of the UPU acts as a link between technology and the needs of the Postal industry by being the first- choice in providing IT solutions, applications and services that enable the delivery of domestic and international postal services.
Main duties:
The PTC is seeking a Software Support Specialist for its Custom Declaration System (CDS). The position is the interface between first-level support (helpdesk) and third-level support (software solutions development).

IMPORTANT: Please note that experience with International Postal System (IPS) administration would be an advantage.

The duties of the post are as follows:

Provide 2nd level technical support and monitor overall service level for CDS products and services.


Collect the second-level support cases from first-level support and the Technical Account Manager (TAM).
Confirm the case analyses made and carry out additional analysis, when necessary. Reproduce the problems and document the steps for reproducing them.

Work with the end users and TAM to:
- assess the criticality and priority of the case.
- discuss possible workaround or mitigation for the case.

Work with the TAM and the third level technical support to:
- maintain a plan for case resolution according to priority (content of next hotfix, or next service pack).
- When the solution can wait for the next software release, integrate the case into the plan for the next release cycle.

Use the Problem Report and Change Requests (PRCR) tool and PTC Customer relationship management (CRM) tool to:
- maintain the list of open cases, with their priority.
- when appropriate, document workaround or mitigation provided to users.
- track and maintain case status until final closure.
- identify similar or duplicate cases, or cases that are linked and should be addressed jointly.
- monitor how long cases are left open, and ensure that cases that escalate to second level are responded to according to the Service Level Agreement.
- anticipate and recommend training needs.

Track cases across the different departments and ensure all parties have the same information on their status (in particular, align the information in the CRM and PRCR databases).

Collaborate with the test team on software testing, in particular to validate the solutions developed by third level support before they are delivered to users.

PTC service desk:
Contribute and propose process and procedural improvements for the management of 2nd level support processes and services.
Generate and analyze monthly support statistics for all products and services; measure service level performance.

Technology assessment & technical survey:
Maintain relevant IT technical expertise.
