Looking for a mid-level Technical Support Engineer with SaaS experience living in North America or Europe to join our fast-growing team at Chameleon
This is a technical role and requires strong knowledge of Javascript, HTML, and CSS, while also being customer facing.
Salary range for this role is $70k - $90k USD annually, based on experience.
Our application process may seem different, it’s not long and drawn out and we feel interviewing alone isn’t the best way for either party to assess fit, so we try to resemble working together and collaborating.

The Technical Support Engineer role at Chameleon

Customers trust us with their users’ experience, and we take that seriously – but software can be tricky! Unexpected issues, edges, and hiccups arise and affect our customer’s ability to use Chameleon effectively and smoothly.
That’s when our Support Engineers step in. As skilled troubleshooters, they save the day when these cases arise – they investigate, uncover, explain, resolve, and most importantly, win back trust.
Because our product operates within our customers' applications, there is a lot of technical sophistication under the hood, and often Support Engineers troubleshoot within the intricate connections between Chameleon and various applications.
As such, this role is ideal for someone who enjoys diverse challenges and problem-solving and wants to be Customer-facing.

What you will do specifically

Engage customers experiencing difficulty in a friendly and comforting manner. Build trust and empathy with our customers by understanding and teaching them.
Act like a detective to efficiently troubleshoot a wide range of issues (often includes logging into our customers’ software and being able to recreate the issue consistently).
Dig deeper into issues to uncover the root causes and potential solutions by reviewing the code base and any relevant data from our database
Represent Chameleon effectively when responding to customers, attending customer meetings, and, where necessary, serving as the technical expert in sales meetings.
Clearly document bugs and product improvement feedback, working closely with internal teams to escalate complex issues and help improve the quality and reliability of our product.
Contribute to the continuous development, improvement, and maintenance of a comprehensive knowledge base for self-serve troubleshooting.
Share knowledge and best practices with fellow Support Engineers, Customer Success Managers, the Sales team, and other product specialists to foster a collaborative and supportive environment.

Skills and experience that will aid success in this role

2+ years working in a technical support or engineering position
1+ years working at a SaaS startup (<50 employees)
Good understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
Ability to understand and troubleshoot complex API structures
Comfort and confidence with using the browser console and other debugging tools
Empathy with customers and their goals, challenges, and situations

Other requirements

You have a fully functioning workstation and a quiet place to work (and take calls) with a high-speed internet connection
You are in an Americas or Europe timezone
Fluency (written and verbal) in English

Key benefits

Salary range for this role is $70k - $90k USD annually, based on experience and amount of early-stage equity

Flexible work hours and generous time off, plus no-meeting Fridays! ​
New MacBook and budget for home office equipment
Allowance for mindfulness/meditation app subscription
Work with some of the best product people in the world as customers

That's what helps us all grow and evolve.
