Technical Support Engineer (Tier 2) // Box

September 30, 2019


To support our customers’ most technically challenging questions, we are currently searching for a Technical Support Engineer (TSE) to work with the entire portfolio of Box End Users, Admins, and Developers by investigating and resolving the toughest technical issues that enable our customers to be successful. 

Technical Support Engineers are empowered to be a liaison between the Product Support and Engineering teams, providing escalated support in a “Tier 2” capacity for our customers around the globe. They actively screen and lead JIRA queues, tackle additional tasks to assist the Engineering team, support ‘skunk work’ projects to amplify and improve internal efficiencies, and assist the broader, global support team through direct customer case support/assistance and mentorship.

If you’re an ambitious, upstart engineer who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment and interacting with people, this could be the position for you!

Why the team needs you

We’re a customer-facing team known for our ability to isolate the root cause of an issue impacting a customer’s experience in Box. We can speak the lingo of Engineers to effectively drive bug identification and translate it for the non-technical partners.

TSEs provide technical leadership, know-how and mentorship across product areas, by being a facilitator, advancing processes and building out knowledge. Ultimately, you are recognised as both a key escalation resource and a liaison with Product/Engineering. You will also connect into our global Technical Support Engineering team on Engineer-related investigations and tools, as well as participation in global on-call rotation to ensure our customers are kept up and running.

As our customer base grows and rapid changes are made to our existing and future product offerings, we need TSEs to support our continued effort to deliver customer delight.
