Support

While developing a Sigfox product, you might need some assistance. We have different tools to use, depending on the problem you're facing:

  • ask.sigfox.com is a website where you will be able to ask any technical question, and get an answer either from a Sigfox engineer or somebody from the community. 
  • support.sigfox.com is the official platform to get support from the Sigfox engineers through Jira tickets. This might take a bit more time, and is reserved for people who already have a contract with Sigfox. 
  • startup@sigfox.com is the email address we use in the Starter Program to answer tricky questions from the participants. If you think you need special help, let us know! 

Community

We believe the community plays a big role in the success of a technology and its entrepreneurs! 

In order to facilitate these exchanges, we have set up a whole Slack community dedicated to helping each other, on which you will also be able to meet Sigfox engineers and support team in case you have a question or a problem. 

Come and meet us on the Slack community
