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

    Do you enjoy working with some of the latest technologies and using your expert Linux Administrator skills to automate routine system tasks? Do you like solving complex problems and finding solutions that scale appropriately in large, high-traffic environments? Are you comfortable working with a broad spectrum of software & services? If so, then we would like to hear from you!

    We are a small remote team of 3, looking for another curious, independent, and savvy DevOps engineer to build upon our continuous delivery pipelines using Kubernetes & Jenkins. We work with hybrid cloud environments and integrate many AWS services like EC2 & Lambda. Not a morning person? This full-time position has afternoon/evening hours: (ideally, 12pm-8pm Pacific give or take an hour).


    • Deploy, manage, & maintain applications and systems
    • Participate in on-call rotation
    • Implement, maintain, and improve CI/CD pipelines
    • Actively troubleshoot any issues and document solutions
    • Ensure system availability, respond to incidents, and handle escalations from other teams


    • 2+ years experience in a DevOps role (or similar)
    • Strong oral & written communication skills
    • Experience using Amazon Web Services (EC2, S3, & RDS at a minimum)
    • Proficient with Linux systems administration (RHEL/CentOS & Ubuntu specifically)
    • Experience with CI/CD platforms (Jenkins)
    • Comfortable using version control (Git)
    • Proficiency with Docker container concepts
    • Prior experience maintaining high-availability systems

    Nice to Have

    • Kubernetes exposure
    • Previous experience with Ruby on Rails environments
    • Prior experience with monitoring systems such as Grafana, Zabbix, or Nagios
    • Configuration management tools such as Terraform and/or SaltStack


    • Health/dental vision insurance
    • 401K
    • Great work/life balance
    • 13" MacBooks and computer monitor provided
    • Adjustable work desks
    • Snacks and Friday Happy Hours!
    • Great location Our San Francisco office is steps from the Powell BART/Muni station!
  • The data volume for our largest customers has increased more than 4x in the last year, and we’re scaling Heap to meet the demand. Our backend supports an expressive set of queries that need to come back with sub-second latencies and reflect up-to-the-minute data. To make this possible, we’re working on a novel distributed infrastructure.

    We’re looking to bring on an Infrastructure Engineer to lead the DevOps side of this challenge. Help us de-risk our stack, add more 9s to our availability, and incorporate open source tooling.

    You’ll own the design and development of our DevOps toolchain. You’ll build deploy pipelines and manage configurations. You’ll set up performance metrics and act on them to scale a complex distributed system.

    We’re looking for stronger software engineering skills than a typical DevOps role requires. This is a building role, which happens to focus on stability, operability, and tooling, not an ops role. You’ll need to be able to understand our codebase and debug issues as they come up. Some example projects:

    • Determine how we'll do service discovery and incorporate it into a codebase that assumes static locations for services.

    • Figure out how we’ll package our code and deploy it from test → stage → production, and eventually eliminate manual deploys on production machines.

    • Where will new instances come from? Pre-baked AMIs? Terraform with vanilla images and a bunch of salt? Containers? Something else?

    • Determine how we’ll monitor, backup, and otherwise operate our Kafka cluster.

    • Much, much more.

    We’d like to get to know you if:

    • You have experience with modern DevOps tooling - infrastructure as code, configuration management, CI pipelines, package managers - we need someone who has deep knowledge of the full DevOps ecosystem.

    • You communicate with clarity and precision. We care about this almost as much as your technical ability.

    • You’re self-directed with a strong sense for relative priority. There is low-hanging fruit everywhere. We need someone who has a good sense for which projects will have the most impact.

    • You have experience with AWS, especially EC2, VPC, and ELB.

    • (Bonus) You have experience with our stack. Heap runs on Kafka, ZooKeeper, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Node.js, with Terraform, SaltStack, and CircleCI for orchestration, configuration, and continuous integration.

    Our HQ is in SF, and we have an office in New York, but a large part of our engineering team is remote. We cover relocation costs, and can sponsor visas. We'd love to hear from you, no matter where you are!

    Heap has raised $95M in funding from NEA, Y Combinator, Menlo Ventures, SVAngel, Sam Altman, Garry Tan, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar, Ram Shriram, and others.

    People are what make Heap awesome. Regardless of age, education, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or any personal characteristics, we want everyone to feel welcome. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive equal opportunity workplace everyone can call home.
