Paperspace’s Support team prides itself on creating an approachable, human voice for a complex and technical product. The Support Manager is responsible for coordinating the efforts of our Support Team, and for representing Support to the organization at large.

They also collaborate with Product, Engineering, and Sales to lend the customer perspective and expertise. The Support Manager leads by example, guiding their team through challenges to success.
