Technical Support Engineer


For millions of teams working in dozens of industries, day-to-day business gets done on the phone. So why — despite the huge leaps we've taken in design and usability — does most business phone software still look, feel, and act like it was born in the 90s? OpenPhone is changing that.

We’re a new type of business phone with a mission to help people communicate better and be more productive.

We’re backed by Y Combinator and some of the best venture firms around including Tiger Global, Craft Ventures, Slow Ventures, and others. We take pride in providing an exceptional customer experience and a product people love, which is why we’re excited that our customers have rated us the #1 VoIP Provider on G2.

OpenPhone is the modern, sophisticated answer to the clunky, outdated phone systems that have been slowing down businesses for years. With thousands happy customers and several rounds of funding in just five years, it's safe to say we're onto something big.

At OpenPhone, we're looking for a Technical Support Engineer who embodies the technical know-how and the heart and soul of what makes our team unique. This role is for the problem-solvers, the empathetic listeners, and those who thrive in a collaborative environment. With skills in SQL, Zendesk, Linear, and Jira, coupled with a proven track record of process improvement and a desire to grow, you'll be at the forefront of delivering exceptional customer experiences. If you're passionate about using your technical expertise to make a real impact, have a knack for innovative problem-solving, and excel in communication, we'd love to hear from you. Join us in shaping the future of business communication with empathy, creativity, and teamwork at your core.
