The Role

As part of the Advanced Technical Support team, you will give the highest quality assistance to customers experiencing our most complex issues - including unexpected site behaviors, advanced use cases making use of our API, and abuse prevention. You will work cross-functionally to diagnose and prioritize product issues, understanding how people use our product and finding creative solutions to satisfy their needs. You’ll support a growing Customer Operations team with real time answers as they encounter complex technical questions across our entire product suite. Technical aptitude matters in the role, but not as much as the desire to make a difference on a motivated team.


  • Diagnose and resolve our most complex and/or technical issues. Take our customers at their most frustrated point and deliver them with context and grace to a resolution.

  • Act as an approachable and patient resource for the global Customer Ops team. Provide real time internal support for more complex questions, deliver ongoing technical training, and build knowledge by providing proactive feedback.
  • Follow through on technical issues. Identify and reproduce, file articulate and consistent bugs, communicate with product and engineering to ensure they have what they need to prioritize and fix issues, keep internal stakeholders and affected customers up to speed.
  • Assist with niche areas of the product requiring specialist support. Develop new expertise in areas like abuse management and API support in order to field support volume as needed.
  • Be a clear and adaptive communicator in all situations. Your voice needs to provide full context for customers, reproduction steps for product and engineering, clear and calm updates on product outages, and engaged support to the Customer Ops team.


  • World-class customer service focus, preferably for an Internet company.
  • 2+ years of experience solving technical issues for customers with high expectations.
  • Outstanding oral and written communication skills, adapting communication style for any audience.
  • A fast-learning critical thinker with excellent organizational skills who can handle ambiguity and competing priorities
