The Role:

Our support engineers field questions and problems from our customers. The issues that come to us are often complex and challenging to solve. Some of our engineers have Computer Science degrees, while others have gained their experience in boot camps and building apps on their own.

We value people who are responsible, good team players, and able to express themselves clearly in writing. For the right kind of person, it’s a rewarding and fun job.

    • A solid understanding of TCP, HTTP, SSL, and DNS
    • Familiar with basic network structure (Physical interfaces, VLANS, static routes)
    • Familiar with network troubleshooting tools (traceroute, netstat, tcpdump, iptraf, etc.)
    • Able to identify sources and points of termination for traffic
    • An understanding of proxies and/or firewalls
  • Intermediate knowledge of Linux systems administration
  • Ability to learn new technologies and concepts quickly to diagnose problems
  • Good written communication skills (expect to write a short essay for us)
  • An intrinsic desire to help customers (and the patience to do so)
  • A willingness to act as a detective, an experimenter, an interpreter, and a team player

Additional Skills:

  • Knowledge of Selenium and/or Appium
  • CI/CD software (e.g. Jenkins, Bamboo)
  • Test automation frameworks (e.g. JUnit, TestNG, Protractor, Cucumber, Capybara, Jasmine, Mocha, Karma, Cypress)
  • Android emulators / iOS simulators
  • Android/iOS operating systems/app development
