Customer Success Engineer

Customer Success, New York City or Remote

Customer engagement is the pulse of Packet’s business - the glue that binds our product, company, culture, and customers together.  To support rapid growth, we’re looking for that next rock star to join our small but passionate team.

Our ideal hire is motivated by what we're doing as a company (hint: we’re building a better internet by automating the heck out of fundamental infrastructure!), and eager to contribute on the front lines interacting with customers, partners, and internal stakeholders to advance an awesome experience for our users every step of the way.

While this is primarily through Intercom and our Community Slack channel, we also expect you’ll want to meet our customers in person at events / meetups / conferences both in the US and around the world when needed. 

Help us make Packet work for everyone and be the premier place to deploy applications online!

As a part of our engagement team, you’ll both help us engage on the front lines also help us maintain/curate documentation to educate, onboard, excite, and support our thousands of users both online and (when possible) in person.

Tools We Use

  • Ruby, go, python, node, and json / yaml - everyone learns to code a bit!
  • Docker, CoreOS, Rancher, BGP - again, you’ll want to know what our customers are doing.
  • Slack, Intercom, github, shippable,


About You

  • Have a background in and passion for infrastructure - we’re all about bare metal after all - but you also really enjoy helping people succeed.  Finding ways to make it easier and more fun for our users to utilize our platform should be fun for you. 
  • Your Linux and DevOps fundamentals are strong, and you’ve got a secret passion for all things networking.
  • Versatility is the name of the game with this role - you’ll wear many hats and should enjoy a fast-paced environment.   
  • You like listening to people and helping them solve problems with interesting solutions. You love to learn about new tools and projects and figuring out how they might be used.  You might even enjoy writing a blog post, hacking up our documentation, or recording a screencast to go with that perfect animated gif you found.

About Us

At Packet, we're out to build a better internet by supercharging the container revolution with smart, API-driven bare metal.
