About the Role

We are looking for an experienced support engineer that loves helping people through their technical hurdles. Our fast-growing enterprise customer base and developer community consist of a wide range of people solving different problems with various frameworks and technologies. To us, it’s important to foster an inclusive and friendly environment and a space where people of different experience levels feel comfortable asking for help. You will have an important presence, interacting with developers from across the world.

As our user base grows larger and, with it, the volume of questions and feedback, we also believe it’s important to build tooling, infrastructure and processes to help us incentivize community and customer self-reliance, make it easier to follow up conversations and to pull useful signals out from the activity.

What will you be doing

  • Work closely with our Enterprise customers to resolve technical issues and answer questions.
  • Troubleshoot bugs, create reusable code snippets, and produce minimal reproducible examples of issues.
  • Develop standard solutions, author self-serve resources, and improve documentation where needed.
  • Be the customer’s voice and use people’s feedback to help improve our product.
  • Support Customer Solutions and Sales teams with customer data and technical guidance in pre-sales activities.
  • Build and maintain support infrastructure, tooling, and workflows.
  • Take part in Sanity’s developer community rotation and help answer questions.
  • Liaise between customers and internal teams during incidents and escalations.
  • Continuously research best practices and learn existing and upcoming features of Sanity’s content platform.

This may be you

  • Exceptional communication and organizational skills.
  • 4+ years of technical developer support and hands-on experience using JavaScript, TypeScript, and front-end frameworks like Next.js.
  • Experience debugging complex technical issues with other developers and end-users.
  • Passion for helping others be successful and fulfil their potential.
  • Demonstrated capacity to quickly learn new concepts and technologies.
  • Self-starter who takes initiative and is energized when there is no obvious solution.
