At Instructure, we believe in the power of people to grow and succeed throughout their lives. Our goal is to amplify that power by creating intuitive products that simplify learning and personal development, facilitate meaningful relationships, and inspire people to go further in their educations and careers. We do this by giving smart, creative, passionate people opportunities to create awesome. And that's where you come in:

The Instructure Bilingual Technical Support group is responsible for providing technical assistance to the end-users of Canvas, our cutting-edge LMS software. Technical Support Representatives support end users, learning management systems administrators, and corporate users. As part of the Full Time program you would assist primarily end users, providing troubleshooting and technical support over the phone. You’d also advise clients regarding the product's use and address specific user issues. During problem escalations, you’d act as a liaison between customers and Tier 2 Support. They will assist the clients from issue initiation through resolution or escalation.

Our Support team is awesome and available 24/7. That typically falls between 6:00am - 10:30pm MST, 7 days a week (so yes, you do need to have availability to work weekends). We can’t guarantee any shifts that will be given upfront because we like to keep things spicy (and they’re based on tenure), which is why we ask for open availability in order for this valuable relationship to get off the ground.
