Senior Support Engineer
3 weeks ago
Support engineers need to be generalists, able to poke at every part of the stack, but for this role we want some specific skills too. Here’s what we’d like to see from your technical skills and experience:
Databases: We use MySQL (and some other stuff), so you should be well-versed in how to write queries for traditional RDBMSs. NoSQL (Couch or MongoDB) and SQLite experience is a plus.
Debugging and architecture: You’ll be doing a lot of troubleshooting in the browser itself, so you should be skilled at debugging a frontend in browser dev tools (mostly Chrome’s). You should be comfortable using and interrogating APIs, and have a sense for how frontends, backends, databases, and other services work together in a web app.
