About Doddle

Doddle is one of the leading international players in B2B e-commerce technology. We now have almost 1000 brands globally using our technology. Our client list comprises of some top brands, including Amazon, Nike, Uniqlo and ASOS, as well as many fast-growing SMEs.

We have technology partnerships with the largest national postal carriers across the globe, such as Yamato, The US Postal Service & Australia Post, whose combined parcel volumes are in the billions.

We are a team of just under 100 people across the UK, USA, Australia, and Japan, and are rapidly growing. We hail from many different backgrounds and cultures, but we are all singularly focused on making eCommerce logistics better for businesses, consumers, and the planet.


As Doddle continues to grow, we are looking to build out our technical and product expertise within Japan by adding an Application Support Engineer to our Technical Operations team. As a Japan-based Application Support Engineer within a broader Technical Operations Team, you will lead the way in providing excellent customer service to our APAC partners by conducting initial incident response, technical deep-diving and troubleshooting of issues, and coordinating with our UK-based Product and Development teams to fully resolve problems. While the initial focus of the role will be our key client in Japan, with time we expect the role to evolve to also encompass our key client in Australia, with expansion to potential other clients in other APAC countries on the horizon.

You will be the in-region expert of our applications and some aspects of the technical functions of the products – for example, you would be able to use Postman to verify data in an API or look at and understand Kibana logs and monitoring. If you are looking to join an inclusive, collaborative organisation with tonnes of opportunity for growth and development then we would love to hear from you!
