Stoplight is looking for a Customer Success Engineer (CSE) to join a fast growing Austin startup in the exciting domain of APIs and API Design Management. The CSE position is a technical customer-facing role with a focus on helping customers achieve success in their use of the Stoplight product. You will work with customers by helping answer questions, solving problems, and ultimately being the voice of the customer within Stoplight.

What is Stoplight?

Stoplight helps organizations design, document, test, collaborate and govern their APIs. We are the first product to effectively cover the entire API development lifecycle.

Stoplight’s mission is to make any stakeholder working with an API more productive. We work with individual developers to large companies including EA, Spotify, Sendgrid, and many others.

Why we're doing this?

We created Stoplight because we found existing API solutions tools to be inadequate. After talking with thousands of users and growing to 500+ paying customers, it’s clear there is a massive void for Stoplight to become the must-have workflow solution for any organization looking to streamline their API strategy.
