More about the role

As a Technical Support Agent at Symless, your focus will be delivering the best possible customer experience, making sure Synergy works correctly and any installation or configuration issue is promptly resolved. You’ll ensure that we are made aware of bugs and features that are important to users. From the knowledge base maintenance to discovering steps to reproduce bugs, you'll be our first line representing our company, helping to make our product great.

About Symless and Synergy

Our mission at Symless is to make great apps for people who have multiple computers.

As well as having over 2 million users worldwide, it's also used at some pretty neat companies like Apple, Pixar,  Google, Amazon, and many more. That said, we're actually a very small company of 20 people, so you won't get lost in the crowd.

  • Help customers with account issues
  • Learn and develop expertise in our software products and development process
  • Respond to customers via social media
