Who we are

At Waitwhile, we work on tools to eliminate the 1 Trillion hours that people spend waiting in lines every year. Our queue management platform is trusted by over 10 000 companies worldwide and helps millions of people enjoy a radically better waiting experience.

What we're looking for

Waitwhile is looking for Support Engineers to assist customers in need and make their experience of Waitwhile a joy.

We build our app using Nodejs, Firebase, Firestore and Linux on Google Cloud Platform. Expertise in these areas is a huge plus, but having familiarity with other common web languages (such as Python or Go) and other databases are fine substitutes. We’re a small cross-functional team who genuinely enjoys working together to make Waitwhile a better product. We are looking for engineers that really enjoy solving problems and helping out.

This is a full time remote position and we are primarily looking for someone in a US time timezone.
