Customer Support Manager

Would you like to join the team behind the world’s brightest microfocus X-ray tube? If you think the combination of customer support contact and deep technical challenges in x-ray sources is attractive, the job as a Customer support manager is right for you!



Excillum (Stockholm, Sweden) is a high-tech company with a unique patented X-ray source technology. We are already very successful in our niche but our goal is to become the preferred high-end supplier to most X-ray applications all over the world. Excillum’s X-ray tubes are premium products that deserve exceptional service. 



To strengthen the service offering we are now looking to employ an operative customer support manager. In short, the task of the position is to make sure that our X-ray sources run with maximal up-time (and thereby maximal customer satisfaction) in the field.




About the job

The role as Customer Support Manager will involve operational hands on activities as well as strategic planning involving a combination of preventive and reactive actions and processes, e.g.:


  • Timely preventive maintenance

  • Improve quality of manuals and other customer instructions

  • Monitoring of health status of systems in field (“Mission Control”)

  • Development of service infrastructure (SW and HW) for remote and on-site service

  • Develop appropriate procedures for, e.g., in field component swap-out to minimize down-time and optimize service workflow. 

  • Budget responsibility for the support organization

  • Follow up and improve on KPI’s, develop and maintain customer and internal training programs through the product lifecycles. 


Although the focus of the position will be to manage our support offering we believe the job must be learned bottom up. 


The position formally reports to our Head of Sales and Business development due to the strong commercial and customer-management aspects of support, but will have very strong ties also to our Engineering and Production departments for the equally important technical aspects of support.

It is also you who will manage (and over time, recruit) the team of support engineers ensuring a technically fit for purpose support department with appropriate response time and availability. The role also includes building trusting and long-lasting customer relations.
