  • Resolve high-profile escalations and issues, improve the customer experience, and drive initiatives that increase their likelihood of success on the platform.
  • Manage the health and performance of the environment using observability tools, carrying out maintenance and updates to roll out new features and keep the platform secure.
  • Participate in a 24/7, on-call rotation for incident response escalation within response and on-site Service Level Agreements (SLA).
