The Opportunity

As a MariaDB Technical Support Engineer, you directly interface with our customers each and every day. You directly help their business, users and customers to succeed and grow.

Our customers use MariaDB Server, MaxScale, ColumnStore, Galera Cluster, Xpand (previously ClustrixDB), client connectors for C, Java, ODBC and other programming languages and environments, and new and emerging technologies made available through MariaDB Server. They use other open source technologies, Linux, Windows and other operating systems. Their servers are deployed on premises, in the cloud, in virtual servers and containers and on physical servers.

We believe technical support is not just a job, but a calling. Our model is unconventional: we do not view support as merely a “cost center,” the unfortunate byproduct of creating products. We do not frustrate our customers or our engineers with scripts that must be parroted and “tiers” that must be escalated through to find someone who can solve an issue. We spend most of our time solving issues that go far beyond simple “break/fix” support or documentation lookup. Our goal is to provide the very best support experience across any industry, and we achieve that by hiring and empowering the very best in the world.

Responsibilities

As a MariaDB Technical Support Engineer you are vital to a customers’ success in this challenging, complex and ever-changing technology landscape. You’re expected to deliver expert-level technical support services to worldwide customers, across our entire portfolio of supported products. Support services range from software usage and best practices, to service restoration and performance tuning. You will utilize advanced troubleshooting skills and creative problem-solving capabilities and you must be self-motivated and capable of working autonomously.

Because we must provide coverage to our customers 24x7x365, this position does occasionally involve work on nights, weekends and holidays, however, we leverage our global team to minimize this impact as much as possible.

If you have a true passion for helping customers succeed and feel rewarded by solving complex problems, and you enjoy challenges, then join the MariaDB Technical Support team today.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
