The support team is globally distributed with a strong focus on minimizing time to fix, and works closely with the product and development teams. ### Responsibilities * Providing initial and timely responses to all support cases. * Triaging support cases including directing users to previous answers, code examples, documentation, or escalating to specific technical or business team members. * Monitoring Github Issues & Discussions, twitter, email, and other feedback channels. * Identifying where internal tooling might be developed or obtained to improve support efficiency. * Reproducing issues, creating test cases, and improving test coverage, if you have experience with testing. ### Requirements * 2+ years of experience in a support engineering role. * Excellent written English communication skills. * Experience working with GitHub Issues and Discussions. * Familiar with popular JavaScript frameworks (React, Vue, Svelte), Node.js, and PostgreSQL. * Familiar with Freshdesk/Intercom or similar technologies. ### Timezones * We're currently looking for US timezone coverage. ### Four day work week This role is optionally a four-day workweek if you are interested in working from Friday to Monday. We can also discuss a shorter (pro-rated) week. In particular we would like to hire people who would be willing to work on weekends (or at least one of the days Saturday or Sunday). About Supabase -------------- Supabase is an open source Firebase alternative. We're backed by Y Combinator, Mozilla, Coatue, and a bunch of [amazing developers](https://supabase.com/blog/2021/03/25/angels-of-supabase). Supabase is a platform which makes it incredibly easy to build *and* scale your projects. About the team -------------- * We're a startup. It's unstructured. * Collectively founded more than a dozen venture-backed companies. * More than 10 different nationalities. * We deeply believe in the efficacy of collaborative open source. We support existing communities and tools, rather than building "yet another xx". * We "dogfood" everything. If you use it in your project, we use it in Supabase. Process ------- * We hire in batches, but accept applications on a rolling basis, so now is always a good time to apply :) * The entire process is fully remote and all communication will happen over email or via video chat. * Once you've submitted your application, the team will review your submission, and may reach out for a short screening interview over video call. * If you pass the screen you will be invited to up to four follow up interviews. The calls: + usually take between 20-45 minutes each depending on the interviewer + are all 1:1 + will be with both founders, a member of either the growth or engineering team (depending on the role), and usually one other person from your immediate team or function. * Once the interviews are over, the team will meet to discuss several roles and candidates and may: + ask one or two follow-up questions over email or a quick call + go directly to making an offer
