· Assisting customers with Tanium platform/module upgrades.  

· Working with other Support TAM’s to assist with their assigned cases.

· Shape, execute and deliver on special projects, with your peer Interns, that directly impact customers of the Support TAM’s.

· Ride along with Support TAM’s and as they take on real-world customer problems in security, operations, asset management, and risk management.
