That’s not all though – you’d equally be invited to improve the documentation, help build out more efficient support processes in the issue tracker, and dive into the cutting edge technologies that will define how we will do work tomorrow. They want to live in a world where everyone can contribute, and as a member of the support team, there are no barriers to using your skills to improve the experience of our users and customers.

  • you have experience writing support content.

  • you have experience being on-call and can jump into a complex situation and make sense of and communicate clearly to stakeholders what’s going on.
  • you’re comfortable using support platforms such as Zendesk and Salesforce.
  • you’re able to communicate complex technical topics to customers and coworkers of varying technical skill levels.
  • you’re experienced with some of the following: Linux, Git, CI/CD, MVC frameworks (Rails, Django, Laravel or others).
