Jeff Maynard

Senior Technical Support Engineer

Our customers run the gamut from people who are incredibly experienced and top experts in their fields to first-year graduate students, so I’ve learned how to interface with all of them and express information in different formats to meet the customer’s experience level. Regardless of what they are using our products for and what issues they are having, I love helping our customers figure out a solution to the problem.
