    • Collaborating with 3rd party developers and supporting where complexity or capacity goes beyond in-house skill set or available resources.
    • Partnering with ServiceNow Support team, key stakeholders, and process owners to maintain the integration of ServiceNow with other tools, solutions and applications.
    • Assisting with the release of ServiceNow platform upgrades and maintenance.
  • Providing ServiceNow Level 2 administration as required.
  • Acting as a technical liaison with ServiceNow Technical Support.
  • Providing day to day, end user technical support for ServiceNow platform incidents and requests.
