Technical Support Engineer

As part of a team that is revolutionizing how businesses share and manage content, the Technical Support Engineer is tasked with tackling, researching, and solving the toughest technical issues presented by our customer to ensure our users are delighted with their Box experience.

As an escalation point, you will work closely with the Support, Product, Platform, Engineering, and Technical Operations teams to identify problems, hypothesize on root cause, test issues, manage the bug ticket queue, and whatever is required to resolve issues rapidly and get our users back on track. The role requires that you can easily transition between speaking with Engineering, Developers and customers (both technically skilled and novices).

Ideally, you enjoy customer interaction, like solving tough issues, and want to grow into increasingly technical roles. You are smart, resourceful, and a team player excited to solve problems, advocate for users, and amplify Box's core values. Above all, you like to relentlessly pursue user delight!
