Hiring from: Singapore

Category: Software Development


If you want to have a greater impact in the open source ecosystem by enabling our Customers to use new
technology to build better software faster - then you should keep reading.

We are searching for another great Customer Support Engineer to support our APAC customers.   While this is a 100% remote role, we are looking for the Engineer to be based in Singapore.

Our CSEs also identify common patterns and/or challenges customers are facing so as to influence the evolution of the product portfolio and best practices. Note - Although this is a 100 % remote role, we expect that travel to customer locations will initially be 35% - 45%.

Why this role matters
Our customers are enterprise architects, security officers, developers, DevOps managers. We offer them
subscriptions to valuable software that works. As long as our customers value their investment, they
continue to renew and expand their deployments. No value = no growth and no renewal. 

Fortunately, our customers find us easy to work with (as reported via customer sat surveys). They trust
Sonatype and value their investments, as demonstrated by our 90%+ renewal rate -- one of the highest
renewal rates in the software subscription business.  But we choose not to rest on our laurels. 
If our customers are not optimized, properly deployed, or have compromised rollouts due to their lack of
time, technical know-how/resources, or understanding of best practices - it will inhibit our mutual ability to
achieve success and expansion. That is why this role is so important.

What our CSEs do
  • Coach and educate a set of customers on implementation and usage best practices for the Sonatype Nexus Platform to ensure smooth on boarding, faster adoption, increased footprint, etc.
  • Share field insights with your peers in Customer Success as well as our Sales, Product Marketing, and Engineering teams. Provide feedback on how to bring more valuable features to the product based on customer reactions and your hands-on experiences.
  • Discover and analyze gaps in the customer experience, identifying early warning signals and then working with cross-functional teams to address them
  • Act as the voice of the customer - use your insights to help us drive improvements, influence product roadmap, deploy customer advocacy programs, etc.
  • Ensure customers are SUCCESSFUL and DELIGHTED with Sonatype products and services, not merely satisfied

What we are Looking For
  • Our CSEs have from many different types of backgrounds including DevOps Engineers, Software Engineers, Quality Engineers, and Solutions Architects. While they paths are different, they all share the following:
  • Broad knowledge of modern software development life cycles and the tooling that development organizations use to build applications is important
  • Ability to travel 35%
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent troubleshooting and analytical skills
  • Well-honed project management and organizational skills
  • The desire to build long-term relationships and help our customers be successful

What We Offer
  • The opportunity to be part of an incredible, high-growth company, working on a team of experienced colleagues
  • Competitive salary package
  • Business casual dress
  • Flexible work schedules that ensure time for you to be you
  • 2019 Best Places to Work Washington Post and Washingtonian
  • 2019 Wealthfront Top Career Launch Company
  • EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2019
  • Fast Company Top 50 Companies for Innovators
  • Glassdoor ranking of 4.9
  • Come see why we've won all of these awards

We are 300 employees from diverse backgrounds, that hail from 50 countries, and speak 15 languages. But, we all share one thing in common: we’re passionate about accelerating software innovation. Our vision is to put Nexus products at the center of every open source decision made by modern engineering organizations.  We’re one of the fastest growing tech companies in America and have been named both a Deloitte Fast 500 and Inc. 5000 company three years in a row. We’re backed by world class investors including TPG, Goldman Sachs, Accel Partners, and HWVP.  Learn more at www.sonatype.com.

    About Us
    Help Scout is made by roughly 110 people in 80+ cities around the world, all with a passion for helping others. We come from diverse backgrounds and are united by an enthusiasm for great products and delightful customer experiences. Help Scout launched in 2011 and today we have more than 10,000 paying customers in 140+ countries.

    Why Help Scout?
    We're remote. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked remotely before — we’ve been doing it for nearly a decade and are helping to write the playbook — we’re happy to show you the ropes. Most folks that get a taste of working in a "remote first" company have a hard time going back to the old way of doing things.

    We’re passionate about diversity and inclusion. The data is abundantly clear about diverse teams being more successful, and we're dedicated to setting the team up for success. Today our leadership team is 62% women, and that's just the start. Here’s our 2019 report. 

    We're committed to SMBs for the long term. Help Scout is focused entirely on serving small and midsize businesses, typically up to 500 employees, because those companies view customer service differently. It's not a cost to be optimized, it's their most effective marketing tool and a key differentiator from the competition. We built Help Scout for companies that truly value being customer-centric (like us) and want a product that shares their values.

    We're leaving the world better than we found it. Did you know Help Scout is a certified B Corporation, with a mission to give away at least 1% of our product through Help Scout for Good? Our company exists not just to help ourselves, but to invest in our team, our customers, our community, and our environment.

    Our commitment to you
    We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.

From custom interactive microcontent, to immersive event microsites, you can build it with Ceros. Publish and update live content instantly, and embed it into your site instantly. Join us in ending the endless creation of static content and be part of the movement towards meaningful content experiences.

    Our customers include some of the world’s leading brands, such as Mashable, GE, Red Bull, United Airlines, and IBM.

    We are well-funded and venture-backed by prominent investors including Grotech Ventures, Greycroft, and Starvest Partners.

    About the Product

    Ceros provides multiple products and the Devops team supports them all.

    The core Ceros (https://ceros.com) product is comprised of multiple single-page applications (Admin, Studio, and Player) written in Javascript using libraries like jQuery, Require, and Backbone.  It is supported by a REST backend built in PHP. The Ceros Studio is built around the HTML5 Canvas element.

    We’re in the midst of migrating both the frontend and backend to Typescript.

    The infrastructure uses Docker, Jenkins, and Cloudformation. We use a myriad of AWS offerings. We also use Okta for authentication and Fastly as a CDN.  We’re eying a migration to Terraform and Kubernetes.

    The DevOps team also supports Markup (https://markup.io), which is built in React and Typescript on the frontend and Typescript on the backend.  Its infrastructure uses Terraform and Kubernetes on AWS.

    About the Team

    As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward.

    We have a dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much.

    The DevOps team is the primary caretaker of the infrastructure, responsible for owning the infrastructure roadmap and pushing it forward.  We’re constantly looking to improve the infrastructure to make it more stable, scalable, available, more easily deployed, and easier to work with.  

    We follow DevOps principles, which means we view ourselves as the deep knowledge and support for all the developers when they need to write infrastructure code for their stories and fight the tendency to silo on a daily basis.  We each attend one of the other development team’s standups as a liaison and we keep the door to the #devops slack wide open for anyone who has questions. We review the other team’s infrastructure code to make sure it’s in line with where we want to go.  And we work to build better tooling around development processes to support the other teams in their work to push the product forward.

    About the Job

    As a DevOps focused engineer, your typical day-to-day involves:

    • Evaluating, testing and building new infrastructure tools and technology

    • Writing detailed planning documents on stories so your teammates can assess the proposed approaches to a story, offer suggestions of approaches missed, and we can all agree on where to go from there

    • Writing maintainable code (probably goes without saying)

    • Carrying out and being on the receiving end of intense code review sessions from your peers who hold your work (and their own) to the highest of standards

    • Helping the full stack development teams write infrastructure code, and reviewing said code

    • Writing clear documentation around infrastructure code and development tooling so that it’s easy to understand, use, and modify

    • Working closely with the rest of the team to deploy new releases and data migrations without hiccups 

    • And finally, ensuring the availability of the Ceros platform

    What we’re looking for:

    • Experience with CI/CD pipelines, configuration management, infrastructure orchestration, containerization, linux administration... you know, DevOps.  

      • In particular, several years of experience with Terraform and Kubernetes. 

    • An eagerness to write well documented, clear code.  You understand that infrastructure code is still code and the principles of documentation and organization that apply to every other kind of code, still apply here.

    • The wisdom of experience.  You understand that principles and design patterns are important guidelines, but not hard and fast rules.  You know when to apply a pattern and when not to, when to hold fast to a certain principle, and when to let it go.  You understand that sometimes we can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good and we’ll have to take on tech debt, but when we do, it should be with consideration and intention (and should be documented).

    • An eagerness to learn.  We’re looking for engineers who are able and eager to keep up with the pace of our rapidly evolving field.  

    Key things to know

    • This is a remote role

    • We want you to start ASAP

    • This is a full-time position

    • Unlimited vacation days

    • Competitive salary

    • Stock options

    • Premium health insurance

    Working completely from home, you’ll be communicating often through chat rooms, email, and video conferencing. We offer flexible working hours and an extremely flexible vacation policy. And we provide excellent gear (15” Macbook Pro, iPad, external monitor, etc.). 

    Next Steps

    If you’re interested in being part of the Ceros team, please send your resume and a cover letter to us. We’re a company of passionate, honest, and sometimes silly people, so don’t be afraid to express yourself.
