The GitHub Technical Support team is looking for full-time team members located in Europe! This person will join GitHub as part of our global support team and support our customers around the world.

Responsibilities

GitHub users work 24/7, so you'll be expected to work some weekends and holidays. And though we support flexibility to let you take care of the important things in your life, you're expected to work during the normal working hours of your timezone.

When GitHub users have questions, they contact Support and we help them as quickly and awesomely as possible. Technical support handles a wide variety of inquiries including questions surrounding Git, GitHub, GitHub Actions, GitHub Packages, and our Ecosystem. Support also works closely with the engineering team to track down bugs and improve our documentation.

The most important characteristic of our support team is that we love helping developers. GitHub is a place for people to work better, together. Our job is to help. Support treats users the way we'd want someone to treat our friends.

Our support teammates have excellent writing chops: stellar grammar, charming written personality, and the ability to explain complicated things simply. We measure our success in swiftness, accuracy, and clarity.

  • Basic experience in programming with a language like Ruby, JavaScript, Java or .NET

  • Exposure to one or more of the following package management tools: bundler, npm, maven/gradle, dotnet / nuget
  • Exposure to client / server architecture in web applications

  • Excellent problem solving skills – you might not know all the answers but you know how to find and communicate the solution
  • Support experience, with a focus on empathy – you are attuned to hear the question behind a question
  • A unique writing style and voice

Preferred Qualifications

  • Will love developers and GitHub as much as we do
  • Could effortlessly explain how Git works to a non-developer

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
