Technical Support Analyst Job Description

A Technical Support Analyst (TSA) is an individual or a team responsible for supporting a company’s clients in the design, implementation and training of software solutions.

The TSA reviews what a customer has, versus what they really need, in order to recommend the best solution.

Because the software industry is a relatively young and growing industry, many technical solutions are still evolving.

As a result, the TSA must understand and apply the latest solutions and provide ongoing education and support to clients.

The TSA may work either in a team or independently depending on the needs of the customer and company.

The TSA may handle issues via phone, email, online chat, or face-to-face meetings
