The opportunity ✨
Waitwhile works to eliminate the 1 trillion hours that people spend waiting in lines every year. Our platform is trusted by over 10,000 companies worldwide and has helped more than 250 million people enjoy a radically better waiting experience at places like IKEA, Louis Vuitton, Costco, Tribeca Film Festival and more.
We are looking for a Solutions Engineer in Europe to join our mission to eliminate waiting and improve customer journeys. Here's what you can expect:

- This position is based in Stockholm at our beautiful bright offices on Kungsgatan 32. We're an in-person company and prefer that you work from the office at least 2 days per week as we believe the best product gets built together, live.
What you’ll be doing 🚀
- Brainstorm with Product Managers, Designers, Engineers, Sales and Support members to conceptualize customer solutions and implement Waitwhile in the most optimal way.
- Debug complex issues with an understanding of both our own codebase and the many technologies employed by our customers
- Solve technical problems for customers on a daily basis via chat, email, video calls or live in-person.

- Partner with our customers for API integrations and make improvements to our Developer Hub (developers.waitwhile.com) with new guides and tutorials
What skills you need 📖
- Computer Science degree or 4+ years in an Enterprise Sales Engineering role (or similar) in a SaaS environment.
