Far too often the support function inside of a company is relegated to an issue triage center; focused more on the exoneration of a company’s product/service than on resolving the customer’s overall issue. At Oxide we are different; we view the customer’s issue as our own, regardless of the cause, and consider supporting our customers the responsibility of everyone in the company.

Working at Oxide in Support Engineering you will:

  • Work closely with customers, from early discovery meetings, to installation and onboarding, to ongoing production operations, helping ensure that they have an exceptional experience running on Oxide.

  • Work with the Product Assurance team to perform system level validations and participate in the release readiness process ahead of customer updates.

  • Work with sales, solutions engineering, and product assurance teams to create customer-specific runbooks that support installations and ongoing operations.

  • Participate in on-call rotations to manage inbound customer communications, providing timely responses that meet our support levels.

  • Work closely with engineering to prioritize issues and document status and next steps.

  • Build credibility with Oxide customers, establishing Oxide as a trusted partner.

  • Provide simple tools, processes, and documentation for customers to get the service they need.

  • Thoroughly document feedback from customers and collaborate with internal teams to ensure that our products and services continue improving over time.

You will thrive in this role if you:

  • Feel a sense of responsibility for the success of each customer, and measure that success in their terms.

  • Have experience supporting a broad and highly technical product or service.

  • Are deeply curious about the companies that you work with, seeking to understand what makes their businesses thrive and what challenges they are facing.

  • Pride yourself in developing a deep understanding of the product you are supporting, and are excited at the prospect of being able to run it yourself!

  • Get excited about a wide range of technical topics and dig really deep into them.

  • Don’t mind coworkers getting really excited about decades-old computers.

  • Are passionate about helping to shape a new product in these early days.
