How we work

We work fast, grow fast, and build fast. Life at MessageBird moves in fast-forward motion. We’re a team that focuses on making an impact — right from day one. We are go-getters, industry leaders, and dreamers. Risk takers. Roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen kind of people. We thrive on transparency, and we value solution-minded attitudes.

We are all driven by one ethos: Get Shit Done. We love shaping things together and leveraging different perspectives, because that makes our products better. Our Birds are empowered with freedom and opportunity; in return, we expect honesty, courage, and agility. We own our work, and sometimes we fail. And then we get back up and cross the finish line — together as a team. Sound refreshing? We think so, too.

The Role: Technical Support Specialist

Our colleagues in Support have a curious mind and love puzzles; whether that entails technical troubleshooting and debugging of API calls, or making our Product offering fit the customer’s needs, whilst navigating around an ever-changing global telco landscape. 

You will have an understanding of the ins and outs of the cases you handle, while you’re also getting stuff done with internal stakeholders to solve that one tricky issue for your customer. You are comfortable stepping outside of your comfort zone to learn something new and have a good dose of initiative and opinion to make your own decisions (and in turn help us make good ones too.) Striving for the highest customer satisfaction and solving technical puzzles comes naturally to you. Being a part of a global team that shares a customer-first mindset only motivates you more.

What you’ll do

  • You are the voice of the company, and interact with our customers in a friendly, professional and personal way.
  • You enjoy finding the cause of any technical problem our customers are facing and help quickly resolve or provide a solution
  • You will work with other colleagues to continuously improve the customer experience when using our products
  • You will get the chance to work with many different omni-channel communications solutions, voice, chat, sms, WhatsApp and many more!

What you’ll bring

  • You have a minimum of 3+ years of technical support experience
  • You have great communication skills and can relay more complex technical concepts in simple terms
  • Experience supporting SaaS and/or CPaaS business products
  • Full professional proficiency in English (Speaking another language fluently in addition is a plus)
  • You are available to work full time.
  • You are available for a maximum of 2 weekend days per 4 weeks.
  • Must have full working rights to work in Ireland. Please only apply if you meet this requirement.

Psst … some added perks

  • Top-notch work equipment (including Bose headphones!)
  • Free lunch and healthy snacks, every day. Yup, you read that right!
  • Friday after-work drinks at the office
  • MessageBird swag to keep you well-dressed
  • Company and team outings (from dinners and paintball to gaming and movie nights — and everything in between)
  • A team of (fast-)forward-thinking, talented and fun colleagues from more than 50 countries!

If you think you’re a match for this role and can bring some great skills to the MessageBird team, please apply! We’re excited to get to know you.
