Deepgram is looking for a Technical Support Engineer to work with our clients to deploy, maintain, and troubleshoot Deepgram’s automatic speech recognition platform. You are an experienced support engineer fluent in speaking “customer.” You love consulting with customers to understand their objectives, configuring and integrating software, troubleshooting customer-specific technical issues, and leveraging technology to drive business value. You are just as comfortable helping a customer debug a websockets SDK as building the solution from scratch if need be, whichever works for them. You love working with audio and understanding its many formats. You enthusiastically design, build and run tests and proofs of concept with customers. You work closely with users, sales, and engineers to triage immediate issues, problem-solve subtle and evasive bugs, and fix minor bugs. When you discover issues, you specify precisely how to replicate the issue including the parameters and data used. You are able to take the initiative in helping to establish scalable support practices to support our fast-growing customer base. What gets you excited? Empowering current and future Deepgram customers to unlock the full power of Deepgram’s industry-leading speech software.
