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.

This role may require working non-standard working hours, including weekends and holidays.

  • Manage urgent customer outages during business hours

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

Preferred Qualifications

  • 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
