In 2011, Marc Andreessen famously said, “Software is eating the world.” 10+ years later, software hasn’t just nibbled, it has indulged in a lavish ten-course feast at a Michelin star restaurant. From Slack to Zoom to Figma, software is embedded in every company’s DNA. And while most just get to enjoy the benefits, there is one unsung hero behind it all: 🦸‍♀️ IT 🦸‍♀️

While being flooded with never ending IT tickets, they are also making sure Guy Fieri in Sales doesn’t buy yet another tool “promising” a 103% lead conversion rate. And burying themselves in spreadsheets to prepare the SOC2 report for when Gordon Ramsey from the Big 4 comes knocking. And can’t forget about Julia Child, the newest on-call engineer, who needs access to prod DB to investigate an incident. All of these workstreams are among spreadsheets, emails, Slack messages, and Zoom calls. But those days are numbered.

✨ Let there be Lumos

Lumos is building the first AppHQ for companies. In essence, we are creating the meta app, the source-of-truth for companies to manage all their apps.

Why Lumos?

  • 🚀 Rocketship Growth: In less than two years, our team has grown from 20 to ~80 brilliant minds across Canada, the United States and South America. Our customer base has more than 10x’d with some pretty incredible names like SiriusXM, GitHub, and Intercom.
  • 📈 Backed by Industry Leaders: Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) has backed us since the beginning. We have a team of trusted advisors including Joel De La Garza (partner at a16z and previous Chief Security Officer at Box) and Leland Maschmeyer (the design thinker behind Spotify and Microsoft)
  • ⭐ Grow with us: You have the chance to be one of the first 100 people at Lumos. At Lumos, you will build your function from the ground up, get exposure to different aspects of the business developing a diverse skill set, and most importantly, you’ll have the opportunity to pave your own path.

We are rewriting the IT playbook, one that better reflects our software eaten world. 

As a Support Engineer at Lumos, you have the opportunity to be a founding member of our Support function. Partnering with the Solutions Engineering team as well as Customer Success Managers, our goal is to find the equilibrium between quantity and quality, where speed and accuracy are our best offense and defense. As Lumos grows its client base by more than double this year, your role is essential to the success of our customers. Enablement, troubleshooting, and clarity of communication are pillars in your everyday interactions. In the Support Engineer role, you’ll not only report into the Support Engineering Lead, but you’ll partner with them in developing clear swim lanes for Support at Lumos and truly shape the future of the team.

✨ Your Responsibilities

  • Creating a World-Class Support Experience: Interacting with our client base on the day to day, you will have a direct impact on shaping their experience with Lumos. We want to ensure attention to detail, a friendly approach, and consistent care are present in each and every interaction.
  • Troubleshooting Complex Technical Errors: Lumos is still early in its development, and we’re rolling out new features often. With this level of innovation can also introduce unexpected behaviors. It’s essential that you stay on top of the product development, relay customer feedback through validating enablement materials, and are extremely clear in your handoffs to our engineers for further actioning as needed.
  • Proactively Developing Product Expertise: Similar to the above, partnering with our Product Managers is essential. If we don’t have the information we need to successfully support customers on a new feature rollout, seek to discover. By establishing these mutually beneficial relationships, you’ll become a product expert and the voice of the client in product development.
  • Reflecting On and Finding Solutions for Current Support Opportunities: Because we’re building this team from the ground up, your thoughts, opinions, and considerations are essential to our longterm success. Giving feedback and being creative in your problem solving are critical.

🙌 What We Value

We purposefully did not create a standard list of minimum qualifications because we care much more about your motivation, excitement, and potential to grow into the role than about your CV.

Instead of focusing on what people need to have, we focus on what people need to do. Additionally, we try to find out whether you would be a good fit for Lumos based on our values that define how we achieve outcomes and what characteristics we value.

*We encourage you to apply even if you think you might not be perfect fit! 🤝
