GitHub is looking for full time Technical Support Account Managers to provide Korean-language support for our customers, as part of our APAC team.

More and more companies are using GitHub Enterprise, so the support team is growing.

  • Perform incident postmortems, ticket analysis, and system health checks for Premium Support customers as needed.
  • Lead quarterly business reviews for the assigned accounts by presenting metrics, data, and health check summary and recommendations.
  • Organize and lead weekly/bi-weekly touchpoints with assigned accounts to review ongoing Support issues and projects.
  • Work proactively with customers on activities such as coordinating upgrades and ensuring their installation is running smoothly.
  • Set-up and onboard new assigned customers into the program.
  • Work with Sales to outline the GitHub Premium Support program and features to potential customers.
