Join the team as Twilio’s next Manager, Supportability Engineering.


Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.


Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we have presence throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We're on a journey to becoming a global company that actively opposes racism and all forms of oppression and bias. At Twilio, we support diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business.


Join us as a Supportability Engineering Manager to lead a team passionate about improving Twilio’s product quality. The Supportability function serves as the bridge between our Product, Engineering and Delivery Teams, working closely with Product and Engineering leaders to ensure product quality, effortless customer experiences and to equip delivery teams with all they need to provide value add support.


You and your team will champion and drive proactive customer-centric features into the products and services, to eliminate and prevent customer issues. The successful candidate is a dynamic individual with a track record of self-improvement, persistence in driving towards goals even in the face of adversity, focus on results, and an ability to draw the best out of people in a genuine way. 


In this role, you’ll drive the strategy and be responsible for the performance and execution of Twilio’s Supportability teams. You will question the status quo and relentlessly pursue opportunities to improve product supportability and the way we engage with Product and Engineering. You bring a wealth of technical knowledge, deep customer empathy, the ability to influence others and drive results.


Your team’s subject matter expertise, technical skills, and access to the voice of the customer directly influence product changes that enhance the user experience and reduce the need for support.


Responsibilities

In this role, you’ll:

  • Serve as the specialists that help enable customer-supporting teams on new products and features.
  • Influence product and business teams to improve product supportability and collaborate with delivery teams to understand needs and deliver enablement.
  • Construct data, evidence, and anecdotal-based business cases and provide design recommendations to influence significant R&D changes that improve product design and increase revenue.
  • Analyze existing product experiences, determine improvements, and facilitate change with R&D as needed.
  • Build comprehensive views of the R&D release pipeline through engagement with the Product team.
  • Manage product release processes on behalf of all global operations teams, working closely with Product Managers to ensure effective functionality, tooling, and enablement.


Qualifications 

Not all applicants will have skills that match a job description exactly. Twilio values diverse experiences in other industries, and we encourage everyone who meets the required qualifications to apply. While having “desired” qualifications make for a strong candidate, we encourage applicants with alternative experiences to also apply. If your career is just starting or hasn't followed a traditional path, don't let that stop you from considering Twilio. We are always looking for people who will bring something new to the table!


Required:

  • 6+ years in technical support, operations, or supportability management role.
  • A strategic problem solver, able to identify ways of measuring and tracking team “inputs” and “outputs” to set clear goals, measure individual performance and influence outcomes.
  • Analytically minded at your core: a problem solver that knows how to mine data to surface insights and tell customer stories that influence teams to take action.
  • Able to influence and build bridges with various stakeholders including Product and Engineering teams, support and operations leadership, and others.
  • Must have the capability to attract, develop, empower, and retain team members.
  • Strong operational focus with an analytical and process-minded mentality.
  • Proven track record of exceeding goals, growth, and achieving success.
  • Passionate about developing people and able to build top performing teams.
  • Able to work in a multidimensional environment with a strong bias toward action. 


Desired:

  • Demonstrated cross-group R&D relationships.
  • Experience working in project management or with product releases.
