Alongside resolving issues for customers, the Support Engineer will be responsible for reviewing and updating our documentation pages.

This person cares about customer experience, dealing with other Cronofy team members across the business, and ensures that customers have positive experiences with Cronofy.

How we work

We can support a predominantly remote, office-based or hybrid working model. We really do value face to face time and, under normal circumstances, encourage teams to spend regular time together at our offices or suitable locations.

Our Support team currently covers the UK and Amsterdam. We meet in a mixture of Nottingham (HQ), London, and Amsterdam offices. For this reason we are open to considering applicants in either the UK or Netherlands.
We work hard but insist that everyone considers the balance between this alongside life and responsibilities outside of work. We use our principles to guide our behaviour as people and form the basis for our day-to-day decision making.

We are direct with our dealings with each other. We continuously work to build mutual trust so that we can give each other feedback without fear of it being taken personally.

It's as important for you to determine whether this is the right move for your career as much as anything else, so don't be afraid to ask questions. We value transparency and so are happy to answer (virtually) any questions you may have.
