We are hiring a Support Engineer who can help us scale our quality initiatives across the business. Our ideal Support Engineer has previous QA experience working on an engineering team and who is comfortable evaluating bugs with technical rigor and making code or configuration changes.

The Support Engineer will be a member of our small but passionate Quality team dedicated to ensure our products meet a high bar of technical excellence.
