Engineering
Full-time

Our Technical Support Engineers provide enterprise-level assistance to our customers around the globe - we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of support and we believe this level of steadfast commitment truly showcases the uncompromising integrity of our company.

Delivering on this commitment requires uninterrupted dedication from our Technical Support team: we are therefore looking to expand our Tokyo support team to work alongside the existing 5 members in the beginning of 2018.

As a Technical Support Engineer you will be our customer’s advocate and be responsible for their continued enablement by becoming an evangelist for the evolving value of the Treasure Data product with customers. We will also look for your input in representing the customers’ feedback with the Product team and helping us drive and prioritize the improvements to the product. You love helping customers! You know how exceptionally satisfying it can be to solve a challenging problem for a customer, and you know first hand how outstanding customer support can make the decided difference in customer acquisition and retention.

At Treasure Data, we put a great deal of emphasis on collaboration and maintaining an open work environment, regardless of location. We believe employees should not just work but enjoy doing it - appreciating and valuing working alongside your co-workers goes a long way towards that goal and we strongly believe in ensuring that’s always the case.
