Since its founding in 1997, Altum has provided innovative grantmaking and performance management software solutions such as proposalCENTRAL®, Easygrants®, Infor PM, and QlikView, to nonprofit and governmental organizations. A privately held corporation, Altum, Inc., is headquartered in Reston, Virginia.

The job is full-time and based in our Reston, VA headquarters.

We are seeking a Client Support Analyst with a business analyst mindset to join Altum’s Support Team for webbased grants management software. The software is used primarily by not-for-profit grant makers to manage their entire grants management process.
