Glowforge is a beautiful device that sits on your desk. It uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. If you haven’t already, check out our video on glowforge.com. While you’re there, you’ll notice something amazing: Glowforge is the largest crowdfunding campaign in history.

 

There is an incredible demand for what we're creating. It's not a geeky tool for the tech elite or a garage workshop; we're crafting an iconic product that is going to change the way people think about creativity. Our customers include consumers, digital designers, crafters, engineers, teachers, artists, and more. It's already the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history, and now that it's available at retail, the fun is really starting.

Why we need you

We have the best customers, and our company is going to succeed or fail based on the experience they have with their Glowforge. When customers experience a challenge, they’ll come to us expecting us to make it right. That’s where you come in. While they may start frustrated or confused, you’ll leave our customers warmly supported and glowing.

When our customers encounter difficulties, whether it’s the Glowforge app, the mechanical systems of their Glowforge, the design they’re working with or the materials they’re using, you’ll help them get back on track. You’ll ask great questions, notice emerging patterns, write excellent bug reports, and figure out how to describe that really complicated thing in really simple steps so that they can get back to printing happily.

Here's what you'll be doing

  • Learning! You’re going to learn our hardware, software, firmware, materials and designs inside and out.
  • Communicating elegantly. You’ll respond to our customer’s questions about Glowforge software, hardware, and more.
  • Troubleshooting the tricky questions: Why isn't the customer getting the result they expect, or why won't their Glowforge connect to their WiFi network?
  • Partnering with senior technicians and engineers to develop solutions to unique issues. You’ll keep the customer in the loop with frequent updates about progress to solving their issue, and ensure that issues needing extra support reach the right expert(s) to resolve the issue.
  • You’ll keep a positive disposition and level head even during the worst of times - like late on a holiday when a customer is rightfully upset because something is broken, and you’re the only one they have to talk to about it.

You need these qualifications

  • You are located in the Seattle or Denver areas, or will be soon.
  • You have a four-year degree in a technical field or equivalent experience.
  • You have experience troubleshooting WiFI networks and IOT devices
  • You have written bug reports in systems like JIRA, Mantis or similar
  • You have used ticketing systems like Zendesk, Kustomer or similar for customer correspondence.
  • You’re comfortable troubleshooting web based applications across multiple browser / OS versions and platforms (Chrome / Safari / etc, Windows, MacOS, Android, etc.)
  • You’re adept at asking good questions to clearly understand customer problems and narrow down possible solutions.
  • You’re an empathetic listener and passionate advocate for your customers.

It would be nice if...

  • You have 2+ years of experience providing remote technical support. Experience providing support via email, chat or community forum preferred.
  • You have experience working from home with geographically distributed teams
  • You have worked with 3D printers, CNC mills, laser cutter/engravers, or other fabrication technology.
  • You’re experienced with one or more design tools like Illustrator, Photoshop, Inkscape, or CAD programs.
  • You love making things - knitting, woodworking, 3D printing, furniture building - it doesn’t matter what.

Please include a cover letter that tells us what you’re excited about doing with us!

One more, very important thing: we are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We’re strongly committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all employees and all applicants for employment. For us, this is the only acceptable way to do business.
