We are looking to expand the Thinkific team beyond Vancouver to reach awesome candidates across Canada. Please only apply if you are legally able to work in Canada and are comfortable working remotely.**
Are you energized by helping your team succeed? Do you love diving deep to figure out technical issues and solve complex problems? Are you excited by technical troubleshooting and the power behind software? Do you love working directly with customers to solve their issues quickly and efficiently to create an unparalleled customer experience? You know that the best customer service involves solving problems fast — and that’s where you come in.
As a Senior Technical Customer Champion, you’ll be part of a team that lives between Thinkific’s customer-facing teams and the Product and Engineering teams for all things technical. The Customer Support, Customer Success, and Sales teams all funnel technical questions, complex problems and software bugs to you and your team to triage, investigate, and solve alongside our Software Engineers. You’ll contribute to building and developing a collaborative, passionate, and insanely helpful team that provides the best support in the industry!
In this role, you will:
- Triage our Tier 2 queue, made up of technical questions and problems often related to our integrations, API, SSO, Themes, and software bugs
- Investigate, identify, and document software bugs by reviewing console logs, conducting cross browser and device testing, using SQL to query databases, checking our database logs, editing theme code (HTML/CSS), confirming custom domain setup, writing/running basic API scripts, and more!
- Create and document processes and policies for Tier 2 Support operations to help provide solutions and better equip our Tier 1 Support Team to handle common technical issues
- Translate technical challenges and investigation results into resources that both the internal Support team and customers can easily understand
- Be involved in the testing of new features as they are released and work closely with our Product team
- Liaise directly with Software Engineers on new bugs surfaced through customer reports after conducting initial testing on your own
- Communicate with both Plus customers and prospects as our Technical Software Expert to verify compatibility of system requirements with Thinkific, discussing possible solutions and implementation methods (including the external development costs done by third party experts)
- Review and answer external vendor and security assessments such as Requests For Proposals (RFPs) or Penetration Tests to satisfy system requirements of prospects and customers
- Share your technical experience by assisting the Technical Support Lead with training Junior Technical Customer Champions
To be successful in this role, you must:

- Perform well under pressure and be able to handle emergency situations on the fly
- Have a strong work ethic and do what it takes to get the job done
- Bring new perspectives and find creative and innovative solutions to tough problems
You might be the person we are looking for if you:
