Salary: Competitive

Location: Porto Salvo, Portugal

Posted: 17 Mar 2020

Main Responsibilities of the role

Truphone is building a Customer Success team to handle its emerging and rapidly growing eSIM and IoT product portfolio and customer base. This team is accountable for ensuring these customers have an excellent experience with Truphone from the contract signature to in-life operations. The team operates autonomously and its members are obsessed with automation. While we develop solutions and tools, we also work with our partners and internal stakeholders to onboard and support our customers throughout their lifecycle taking the opportunity to transform those methods in system based processes whenever possible. We end up building and managing close relationships with some of the largest device manufacturers and network operators in the world. We want to help the customer to achieve more with Truphone!

Support Engineers (SEs) are responsible for supporting all customer facing services and other production systems that are required to monitor and maintain those services. They answer to technical queries, investigate reported issues and proactively troubleshoot detected degradations, keep customers in the loop when incidents arise and strive to provide a first-class experience. Truphone evolves a unique ecosystem of connectivity services and that brings unique challenges as well. In fact, it's the only global mobile connectivity provider with a distributed core telco stack and supporting business systems, serving large enterprise users with traditional mobile plans and a complete IoT portfolio (Io3), as well as other operators with our advanced eSIM distribution and management platforms. The experience of our team feeds back into other engineering groups within the company, as well as to Truphone customers that will eventually be running (self-)managed installations. Support Engineers work with service teams, customers and customer-facing teams, who use Truphone's services and systems, either in the cloud (PaaS/SaaS) or deployment on-prem (Managed or self-managed Services). They focus on getting issues and customer feedback triaged and routed to the appropriate teams. Support Engineers are at the first line of technical engagement with customers and customer-facing teams, acting as advocates and sharing their learnings and insights with the rest of the organization, playing an important role to continuously improve and evolve the services and products. Truphone has a strong track record of evolving Support Engineers to other roles in th
