Support Specialist - Portainer. : Support Specialist : Who, What, Why & Where

Who are we?

Portainer is on a mission to make container management simple, quick, and easy. Whether it's Kubernetes, Swarm, Docker, or Edge compute, the drive to create expert, elegant, simple, yet powerful tools that make the complex simple is what makes us tick.

In its first three years, Portainer has experienced staggering global uptake of its Open Source product, with hundreds of thousands of active users and many hundreds of millions of downloads.

Now we're making the transition to our first commercial product, backed by an awesome group of global investors.

To help us bring our vision for Portainer to life, we're searching for an experienced Support Specialist .

  • Utilise excellent customer service skills and exceed customer requirements
  • Assist with training sessions and onboarding new clients

    Portainer is a global company with employees spread across the world. We've invested heavily to ensure that geography doesn't get in our way and we plan to expand our global footprint rapidly over the next few months.

    The right candidate can work in any country they choose, however, our preference is for the person to be in a time zone that allows regular day time interactions with other support staff, who are likely to reside in New Zealand, Asia, and either Europe or the Americas.


    Portainer is already growing rapidly, however, we're still very much in our infancy. We are hugely excited about our launch into the commercial world and we believe we're at the start of a wild ride.

    Joining Portainer as a Support Specialist will give you :

  • The opportunity to be a part of a truly disruptive company at the beginning of its journey.
  • A great remuneration package (commensurate with skills and experience)
  • The flexibility to work remotely, and work from home, as part of a world-class team working on great tech
  • About us :

    Hundreds of thousands of organizations around the world have turned to Portainer to help them manage their container platforms.

    With deployments in almost every country of the world, and at a scale from very small to impressively large, Portainer has become synonymous with our catchphrase of "expert simplicity".

    Our goal is to provide the most user-friendly means to manage your micro-service platform, regardless of orchestrator, cloud provider, or underlying technology.
