About the role

CloudBees customers rely on our Support team to help them be successful in the use of our products. Our team is uniquely positioned to help sustain the company’s growth by providing a customer support experience that surpasses expectations. These positive customer experiences help drive annual renewals and business expansion. A successful Development Support Engineer (DSE) will use their skills and experience to accurately diagnose customer issues and get them resolved in a timely way, to the customer’s happiness. In addition, motivated individuals who want to contribute in other ways will have opportunities to work on our collection of internal tools that automate the diagnosis of issues, making the entire team more efficient by reducing manual work.

A typical day in our Support team starts with a scrum meeting where we review open and unassigned cases and help each other with issues we’re stuck on. Working on active cases, we answer basic questions and also tackle problems that range from the mundane to the fiendishly complicated (it helps if you enjoy a good challenge). We collaborate with each other throughout the day, via Slack or video calls. During down time, we build technical knowledge through training and tools development.

CloudBees has been a remote-work-first company since it was founded, and the majority of the DSE team works remotely. The existing team has a mix of backgrounds including system administrators, developers, support engineers, and DevOps engineers. We strive to provide everyone on the team with exciting challenges, opportunities for personal and professional growth, and a positive work/life balance.

  • Diagnose complex technical issues and provide solutions or workarounds.

  • The ability to build knowledge of new technologies easily.

As previously mentioned, members of our team have a variety of past work experience, and each bring a different mix of skills to our team. The following are some examples of these skills, but by no means do we expect candidates to have all of them. If any of these fits with your experience, we would love to hear from you!
