Job Description

Accelerate Your Career

Drive global technology


We’re a global market leader in providing software and digital marketing solutions to the automotive industry. We’re innovating the way that automotive dealerships drive their customers’ car-buying experience from the moment they run a search online all the way through to bringing their car back in for a service. Join us and be a part of the evolution.


We’re large enough to make a difference but small enough for your voice to be heard. This means that we are an organisation where every person matters. You can make an impact on the success of our business and that of our customers regardless of what career you decide to pursue.


What you’ll be doing?

You'll be providing software support to our customers who are some of the biggest car brands and dealerships in Ireland that use our technology & information solutions. Dealing with interfaces between our software and manufacturers, you’ll have the typical IT skillset to navigate your way around. We look for natural problem solvers and what’s great about us is that we don’t tier. This enables each team member to challenge their own thinking and develop their technical skills and knowledge through dealing with more and more complex software issues.

You'll be taking ownership of software related issues and troubleshooting them in order to solve the issue. You'll be working with our customers in order to gather as much information from them as possible and to handle their expectations from case start through to case closure. Due to this we look for excellent customer and people skills in our team members. There are no scripts as most of our issues are unknown. This means that you will need to have the dedication to understand not only what the problem is but also identify the root cause of it.

What’s more, the role can evolve to include project/chargeable work, potential onsite consultancy and go-live support. We are big believers of growing our own and we want to ensure there are other growth opportunities within the support role to help you evolve. This could see you being involved in the deployment of Manufacturer System Interfaces, execution of data migrations and Print Manager solutions.

You’ll be;

  • Taking direct ownership of software related issues through our case management system, WebChat and phone
  • Analysing and resolving complex software product issues, using analytical, technical or programming skills
  • Making initial contact with the customer who logged the issue to understand, gather information and try to recreate the issue
  • Handling a range of both technical and non-technical cases at any one time at all different complexities
  • Interpreting, debugging application code and isolating issues
  • Documenting solutions and producing written resolution steps and procedures
  • Reporting issues and recommending process improvements

Do you dare to be different?

We look for people with the right cultural fit. While our business is full of industry minds we also value those who are keen to work together and have the potential to develop new knowledge and skills. Innovation and collaboration means growth and ours, ultimately, depends on yours.

This might be the job for you if…

You love solving problems. You’ll enjoy taking on hard problems and finding creative solutions to technical issues. If you don’t know the answer, you’ll dig until you find it. You will be a natural trouble shooter. You will not just enjoy figuring out the solution but also solving the root cause of the issue too.

You love helping people. You’ll enjoy helping people through to issue resolution. Our customers may not be technical wizards so it’s all about talking to them on their level to help them.

You love your tech. You’ll enjoy developing your existing tech knowledge and learning new things. You’ll enjoy learning about new product features and using a wide range of technology. We provide you with all the training you need for our software but if you do have a technical background with some exposure to UNIX that would be advantageous. A technical skillset, is really what we’re looking for.


Why a career with CDK Global?


We demand diversity. Our people may be spread across countries, continents and cultures, but we’re united by a passion and enthusiasm to drive our business forward. This means no matter where you work you’ll feel like part of our global team. Diverse backgrounds, ideas and experiences are the only way to deliver world-class service to our customers. Our differences are our strengths


Your benefits. To help us attract and retain the best, we pay people according to performance, not length of service. We will also help you grow your career, not only through focused investment in learning and development but also by enabling you to explore the exciting opportunities our global market has to offer.


The perfect opportunity awaits. Start your career with CDK Global.
