    It's a software engineering job. Lotta customer escalations / bug fixing / diagnosing-debugging

    I was a sustaining engineer for the top rival product of Splunk. It's purely doing bug fixes and occasional customer escalations. You won't be developing new features but it can be interesting if you enjoy bug fixing. Also if you get a job there please DM and refer me lmao

    Do you enjoy bug fixing, working on customer issues? Then sustaining. You want to develop new features? The other engineering roles allow you to do that
