Greenhouse is looking for a Support Engineer to join our team!

In this role you'll work closely with our Customer Support, Engineering, and Customer Success teams and help our customers troubleshoot a variety of technical issues. Working alongside Greenhouse's engineers, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the technical aspects of Greenhouse products and jump-start your career in tech.

Who will love this job:

  • An innovator: You think creatively to tackle problems and discover workarounds using available resources
  • A wordsmith: You have the ability to communicate clearly, concisely, and with a friendly tone who can transcend the starkness of chat and email to leave customers feeling warm and fuzzy
  • A cool cucumber: You can multi-task and balance priorities without breaking a sweat

What you’ll do:

  • Resolve technical issues by working with our customers to answer questions, provide guidance, solve issues, and route product feedback
  • Handle open customer issues, escalating when appropriate, to ensure timely follow-up and satisfactory resolution
  • Assist with keeping internal and customer-facing support documentation up-to-date
  • Be a great teammate in a flat-structured, highly collaborative environment and contribute ideas to improve processes
  • Collaborate with our Customer Success, Product, and Engineering teams to build a seamless experience and maintain our high bar for customer happiness
  • Provide call-back phone resolution for customers as needed

You should have:

  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent organization skills and an eye for detail
  • Exposure to software development and computer science concepts and a strong desire for learning
  • Ability to translate technical concepts for multiple non-technical audiences 
  • Ability to manage competing priorities and effectively multi-task
  • Outstanding customer service skills – ability to be empathetic, accurate, responsive, inventive, and conscientious
  • Your unique talents! If you don’t meet 100% of the qualifications above, tell us in your cover letter why you’d be a great fit for this role
