About ThousandEyes

ThousandEyes empowers enterprises to see, understand and improve digital experiences for their customers and employees. The ThousandEyes cloud platform offers unmatched vantage points throughout the global Internet and cloud providers, delivering immediate visibility into the digital experience for every user, application, website or service, over any network. ThousandEyes is central to the global operations of the world's largest and fastest growing brands, including Comcast, eBay, HP, 120+ of the Global 2000, 65+ of the Fortune 500, 6 of the 7 top US banks, and 20 of the 25 top SaaS companies.

About the Role

We're all familiar with the technology, but have you ever wondered how the Internet actually works? At ThousandEyes, we spend every day working to help customers understand the gotchas of Internet-based service delivery: how to identify problems, how to resolve, and how to avoid them in the future. Our Customer Success team is tasked with empowering our customers with ThousandEyes to ease their performance monitoring pains.

If you enjoy variety in job responsibilities, this is the job for you.  A day may involve helping a customer identify network loss in an undersea cable, diagnose the cause of a route leak impacting significant portions of internet traffic, scripting an approach to monitoring a website's login flow, spinning up a lab environment to reproduce a strange set of behaviors seen in a customer's environment, saving a company hours of bridge time during a significant outage impacting their infrastructure by finding the smoking gun in a network outage, or simply helping someone understand the way that our applications work. The job is highly variable and requires both the ability to make data-driven decisions, and draw conclusions based on incomplete information.  We're looking for out-of-the-box thinkers who can complement and extend the already formidable talents of our Customer Success organization.

You will need to be a really enthusiastic self-starter, intellectually curious and a fast learner, and a stickler for details, since you'll be working with some of the smartest operational people here that you ever have. Thinking on our feet is a big part of what we do every day, and our job is to make the jobs of our customers easier to manage and understand.

The ideal candidate has an amazing attitude, can learn and present new concepts, has dabbled in development but worked in operations, and wants to work with some of the smartest customers you can imagine.

 
Requirements:
  • A standout "customer first" attitude
  • Bachelors degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent working experience
  • Ability to prioritize tasks and complete them on a timely fashion.
  • At least 5 years working in a customer-facing role
  • Ability to communicate clearly and concisely to technical and non-technical users
  • Proven troubleshooting and problem-solving skills
  • Firm grasp of network and application protocols (Cisco/Juniper certification strongly preferred)
  • Significant experience on Linux, at or close to SysAdmin level
  • Familiar with core networking principles - DNS, web technologies, and voice over IP 
  • Working knowledge of virtualization technology - containers, virtualBox, VMware, HyperV, Xen
  • Working knowledge in security - authentication, permissions, SSO
  • Some development experience is a big asset, both Javascript and use of RESTful APIs.  Python experience also desirable
  • Experience in technical writing is a plus

 Responsibilities:

  • Timely interaction with customers and internal teams requesting support
  • Take ownership of technical issues, working with cross-functional teams to document problem definition, troubleshooting procedures, and resolution steps
  • Take ownership of customer support forum and keep information current on best practices with ThousandEyes
  • Active participation in 24*7 Support Coverage model
  • Identify process & workflows ripe for improvement or automation

 What happens next?

If this sounds like something you want to pursue, then the next step is to send us your resume.  We have a rigorous process for candidate selection - we only want to bring in the people who have the right mix of attitude, aptitude and experience, so the process is not trivial and includes a phone-screen, a practical exercise, face-to-face interviews and finally a presentation to the team on a challenging technical problem.  That said, once you're on the inside, you'll understand why the bar is so high, and you'll be glad you made the effort and spent the time to go through the process.

ThousandEyes is a newly. acquired member of the Cisco family, and we are looking to expand our Customer Engineering team around the globe. This is an amazing opportunity to be part of an exciting, fast-paced industry with a lot of potential for future growth and career-advancement.

An Insider's view of ThousandEyes (part of Cisco)

What are some social events your company does?

At ThousandEyes we celebrate our employees each month with many different events that have ranged from birthday celebrations to a Halloween costume contest and a field day at Zilker Park. Our goal is to create an environment where we are celebrating our entire team!

Christie

Workplace Services Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

ThousandEyes truly values its employees and that was clear to me from day one. I always thought that transitioning out of sales would be impossible without an MBA, however the opportunity was afforded to me at ThousandEyes.

Charles

Customer Success Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

One of our Sales DNA principles is "no limits". We demonstrate exponential thinking, we dream big, inspire our peers and act as the spark for change. I would say this is a common theme / trait across the tribe.

Luvlynn

VP, Inside Sales

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I believe ThousandEyes overall culture drives a positive work/life balance. Wellness is a DNA principle of ours, and it is truly taken to heart in all sense of the word. Top down, taking time away from work to spend quality time with family and/or doing what you love is encouraged and celebrated.
