Circuit: Senior Technical Support Engineer – Remote

    Headquarters: London, England, United Kingdom

    URL: https://getcircuit.com/

    🌏 Located remotely – from UTC -5 to UTC +2
    💸
    Senior Engineer salary £95,000 💸 Staff Engineer salary £110,000
    👋 Reporting to Jack Underwood, CEO and Co-founder
    👯 Working in the Engineering team (B2B and B2C)

    We are a fully remote, bootstrapped, and profitable company made up of experienced, talented people. We hire globally across time zones from UTC -5 to UTC +2 and currently have people based in Europe, South America, and Canada. We have a flexible, semi-asynchronous working culture with very few meetings. 
    If you’re pragmatic, like to get things done and enjoy the autonomy and responsibility that comes with working as an individual contributor – we think you’ll be right at home here.

    The job

    This is the first position of its kind here at Circuit and, in typical start-up fashion, this is a broad role where you will tackle a whole range of technical problems. A mix of pre-sales and third-line tech support, you’ll directly resolve ~50% of bugs that cross your desk and triage the rest, so you will need a lot of engineering experience, problem-solving skills, and customer support experience.
    As the first and only member of the tech support team, you will help shape the role and the division. In the long term and as we grow the team, there are leadership opportunities for the right person.

    Who we are, what we do, and how it’s going

    Back in 2017, we saw an issue with last-mile delivery – it was too complicated and stressful for drivers. Circuit started a mission to change that by choosing to develop an app that put the driver and their customers first.
    We were astounded by the response we received. Within our first year, we had almost 1,000 customers, $100k in ARR, and a team consisting of our two co-founders, Jack and Pol. Today, we now help more than 100,000 drivers deliver over 1bn packages worldwide (about 20 a second!), $20m ARR, and a lean team of ~40.

    Your Skills and Experience 

    In short, we are looking for someone with experience in a similar role at a Senior+ level (possibly in a start-up where you covered a lot) or who has software engineering and tech support experience.
    Plus:

    Full-stack engineering/development experience, as well as technical support or sales support engineer experience (or a similar position)
    On the frontend, JavaScript, TypeScript + React + NextJs, on the backend, all TypeScript
    Great with customers and adept at explaining tech to non-technical folks
    Problem-solving, reasoning, prioritizing, and independent decision-making skills
    Spoken and written English to a high professional proficiency or native level


    A typical day…

    Solving a mix of medium and high-priority bugs, ~50% directly by contributing the fix yourself, ~25% by triaging to the appropriate team, and ~25% by realizing it’s user error and explaining the solution to them.
    Join a customer call with our Senior Account Exec to provide technical guidance about how the implementation would go between our API and their CRM
    A couple of async conversations with our customers who are in mid-implementation of our API and could use some guidance
    Handle 10-15 technical support tickets, help users understand how to use our more complex functionality and how best to set up their teams
    Make improvements to the documentation for the support team on how to handle repeat scenarios so that your future workload is reduced.

    What you won’t be doing

    Daily stand-ups and fortnightly sprints. Expect ~one meeting per week. We’re not the right fit for you if you rely on regular meetings to keep on track
    Sacrificing quality. We have high standards and won’t rush to meet an arbitrary deadline
    Managing people. This will remain an individual contributor role, at least for now.
    Working with junior folks. You need to be okay with doing more low-level and administrative tasks.

    If have the skills and experience we need and think Circuit sounds like the place for you, we would love you to apply. Thanks!
