Mixpanel Support isn’t your typical support organization. We see it as an engine of growth— every time a customer writes in to Support, it's our job to cultivate meaningful relationships and ensure customers trust and understand our product and their data. We’ve built a diverse team of people that are focused on giving our customers as well as our colleagues the best Mixpanel experience possible.

About the role

The core responsibility of a Support Engineer is to support our customers at every turn in the Mixpanel journey by providing answers to product questions, sharing best practices and debugging technical issues. As a Support Engineer, you can focus on coding projects, collaborate with our Product team to launch new features, develop product trainings, or mentor new team members — just to name a few! We’ve had team members focus on developing their technical skills to join the engineering team, hone their customer facing skills to become customer success managers, and take on leadership roles in Support.

You will:

  • Become a Mixpanel product expert! Our support team is on the front lines developing best practices and offering consultative advice. You will help customers understand our reports and features, improve their implementation, and support them through their technical roadblocks
  • Respond to customer inquiries, primarily via Zendesk email or online chat
  • Contribute to growing support channels like online community forums and help center documentation
  • Collaborate with other Support Engineers to investigate and resolve customer issues
  • Identify, document, and report bugs and customer feature requests to share with our Product and Engineering teams
  • Act as a customer advocate by providing continuous feedback regarding internal support processes, product improvements and customer education
  • Help customers import, update and export data via our APIs
  • Work on initiatives within the team to improve internal processes

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • An intrinsic drive to help customers, along with the patience and empathy to understand their issues and provide solutions tailored to their needs
  • A knack for explaining complex concepts to a diverse audience — our customers are all over the world, in a variety of industries, with varying roles and backgrounds
  • Strong problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, and the ability to interpret data
  • Ability to ask the right questions, think on your feet, and be resourceful when faced with new challenges

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience providing consultative services to customers and the ability to ask our customers the right business questions and utilize their data to realize their goals
  • Experience with technical debugging or development. We support all of Mixpanel’s SDKs — the most common issues we see are in our Android, iOS, and JavaScript libraries
  • An understanding of APIs and experience interacting with them
  • Experience developing documentation for an internal knowledge base or public facing documentation like our Help Center
  • Experience developing or delivering customer facing or internal trainings
  • Experience with Mixpanel — whether you have experience in our core reports or you are a power JQL user!
  • Experience with Zendesk, Jira, Confluence, or SalesForce - these are tools we use daily!
