About Vantage

Vantage is a cloud cost visibility and optimization platform, alternatively known as a FinOps platform. We help companies of all sizes manage their cloud infrastructure costs: everything from individual developers all the way up to multiple Fortune 500 customers. Our co-founders are industry veterans who have been former infrastructure engineers and product managers at DigitalOcean and AWS. The company is an efficient and hard working team of ~30 employees across the US with a New York City center of gravity. As we transition to the growth phase of the business, it’s likely our team size will at least double into 2024.

Our current customers include Square, Aflac, Rippling, Compass, Barstool Sports, PBS, Planetscale, and Starburst.

Vantage has raised $25M in total venture capital, most recently a $21M Series A financing round in March of 2023. Our investors include outstanding, top-tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Scale Venture Partners, Matthew Prince (Co-Founder & CEO, Cloudflare), Calvin French Owen (Co-Founder, Segment), Ben and Moisey Uretsky (Co-Founders, DigitalOcean), Stephanie and Nat Friedman (CEO, Github), Julia Lipton, Brianne Kimmel and others.

About the Role:

As a Technical Support Engineer you will be embedded within the Engineering department and operate in an environment where Support and Engineering meet.

  • Create and update documentation based on customer interactions

  • Participate in regular rotations for weekday and weekend on-call coverage providing emergency support to our customers

  • Working closely with Engineering, you will develop best practices and tools for diagnosing issues and optimizing the service for performance

  • Initially Support customers and resolve their issues via support tickets, merge requests, email and video conferencing

  • Transition to working with assigned accounts, becoming familiar with their environments and business to provide an enhanced support experience

What We're Looking For:

  • 1 - 2 years of industry experience in a technical support or software engineering capacity

  • Experience in and passion for managing customer facing cases throughout the entire support lifecycle from initial customer inquiry to triage and reproduction, writing bug reports for hand off to the development team, and case resolution

  • Ability to use scripting languages (preferably Ruby, Python or Javascript), and MVC frameworks (preferably Ruby on Rails)

  • Experience building trust with customers and bringing issues to resolution quickly

  • Ability to communicate complex technical topics to customers and coworkers of varying technical skill level

  • Experience supporting a cloud service in production

  • Knowledge of AWS, GCP, or Azure

  • A kind person
