Hiring from: EMEA

Category: Customer Support


More and more companies are using GitHub Enterprise, so the support team is growing. When our customers have problems, they contact us and it is our goal to help them as quickly and awesomely as possible. We're looking for Enterprise Support Engineers, in North America, some European territories, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand to support our GitHub Enterprise product installed and managed in the customer's virtualization environment.
 
Your main responsibility will be to work with our customers via web interface, email, phone and chat to solve support tickets. Tickets are usually opened by internal system administrators, and can include investigating load or networking issues, debugging application errors, and discussing feature requests. You'll also work with our engineering team to prioritize issues and development, and our documentation team to improve customer-facing resources. You don’t need to be a Git expert, but you do need to have technical experience and a passion for helping people.
 
The position reports to an Enterprise Support Manager and works closely with other teams and leaders across the company.
 
GitHub works remotely and asynchronously as much as possible. While this role does not require you to live near our office, it will require some travel to meet with co-workers or attend company events.
 
This role may require working non-standard working hours, including weekends and holidays.

  • Manage urgent customer outages during business hours

Minimum Qualifications

  • Enthusiasm for working directly with customers
  • Stellar English and grammar skills

Preferred Qualifications

  • Worked closely with large complex customer accounts
  • Familiarity with Git and GitHub
  • Experience with phone support
  • Ability to look through and understand code (Ruby / Bash)
  • Previous experience as a Linux System Administrator
  • Previous experience providing on-site consulting or professional services
