WARNING: This Is Not Your Typical Tech Support Job!
Smartly.io’s Support culture is different. Everybody does Support at Smartly.io, and as a Technical Support Engineer, you will be one of its cardinal ambassadors.
Do you have a knack for solving complex problems? You will be part of an engineering team working to build the most advanced product support on the planet.
Questions we ask ourselves on a daily basis:
- How do we empower 400 employees and put them in the best conditions to support some of the largest and most advanced online performance marketers globally?
- How can we best share our technical knowledge with our peers, so that their troubleshooting skills can begin to approach our own?
This role comes with great responsibility and requires a variety of skills:
- You’ll serve as a vital liaison and translator between customers and our world-class product development team.
- Ideally, you love solving new problems and thrive in situations where there are several unknowns.
-We value candidates who are able to be very technical, while still simultaneously advocating for our support culture.
Some projects we are working on:
- How to shorten the loop between reported bugs and our engineering team and make them easier to reproduce?
- How to leverage the product feedback of our enterprise customers, better close the loop between them and our engineering team, and further enable faster development and iteration?
- What should we build to make it easier for everyone interacting with our tool to provide feedback?
- What is the best way to create a safe learning-by-doing environment for technical problems?
As a Technical Support Engineer at Smartly.io, you will...
- Ensure that Smartly.io is renowned globally for its best-in-class technical support and distinguished customer service

- Analyze, reproduce, prioritize, and document platform bugs

- Help foster the product feedback loop through your experiences in support
- Act with little direction and work quickly to identify and fix the root causes of problems
- Assist and train your teammates in understanding and handling technical issues
- Work in a fast-paced environment while still delivering world class results for the customer

- Fluency in spoken and written English
- Fluency in spoken and written Spanish is desired but not required.
