As a Software Engineer focusing on L3 support, you will bridge the gap between our end-users, frontline support staff, and product engineering. You'll be responsible for ensuring that end user issues that involve technical problems get identified and resolved swiftly, while planning, developing, and delivering internal tools to both ensure those issues can be resolved and proactively guard against issues from arising in the future. You’ll also provide full-stack engineering support for our Support initiatives, such as knowledge base, integrations, and third party platforms. You’ll assist in documenting and improving processes around various common authentication and rostering issues. Additionally you’ll focus on administrative product engineering, coordinating with our product engineers to proactively roadmap administrative functionality and scope and plan the next iteration of Newsela’s internal administrative software.
Why You'll Love This Role:
You'll be able to see our products working out in the wild on a daily basis, and have the opportunity to quickly solve real-world issues for our teachers and students. You'll have the flexibility to not only contribute code but overall direction to new administrative functionality that will help our internal staff do their jobs faster, better, and more efficiently. You will work closely across our Product, Design, Data, and Content teams to help shape the future of K-12 education to deliver content at the just-right reading level. And because we're a technology company focused on improving the way students learn, you’ll be part of an engineering culture that values teaching, learning, and questioning. You’ll have close mentorship as needed, and regular one-on-one’s, all to ensure you’re growing your technical skills and interests.
