You will work with our customers’ and partners’ developers, architects and support personnel to resolve complex problems with potentially very costly and far-reaching consequences.

Twilio is looking for new Technical Support Engineers to join our APAC Voice Support team. We are seeking candidates with a proven record of providing outstanding technical support, who have expertise with VOIP/SIP/IP-PBXes, REST APIs, and the development of web and mobile applications.

  • The time management skills to handle a large volume of tickets while maintaining high Customer Satisfaction and meeting SLA targets. Able to work standard APAC working hours and a shift schedule that includes a weekend day.
  • Familiarity with SIP and IP Telephony protocols and the use of packet capture tools (e.g. Wireshark) to identify irregularities.
  • A demonstrated history of creating non-trivial applications in Java, .Net, Ruby, Python, PHP, Javascript or another modern, general purpose programming language, including integrations with REST APIs.
  • Experience working collaboratively with team members in different geographic locations and time zones.

What?

As a Technical Support Engineer on our Voice team, you will:

  • WEAR THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES: Be the voice of Twilio and help customers with issues related to their calls, voice applications, and SIP trunks, as well as carrier and VOIP connections. Surface customer feedback to our Product Management and Engineering teams to identify and drive improvements in our voice products.
  • BE AN OWNER: Examine PCAPs, HTTP requests/responses, and application code.
  • WRITE IT DOWN: Explore historical and real-time data to aid in diagnosing issues.
  • Help us understand customer trends, documenting and reporting what you observe in order to improve our support process.
  • BE INCLUSIVE: Interact, collaborate and network with other departments in Twilio in your search for solutions that our customers need.
  • NO SHENANIGANS: Play a pivotal role in urgent customer communications as a frontline member of our on-call team.
